assisted living San Diego, CA

If you’re looking for assisted living, San Diego has lots of options.  It’s a good and bad problem to have.

With over 100 assisted living facilities and hundreds of small assisted living homes in San Diego County, finding the right care type and care setting can be challenging.  But help is available…

Elder Answers has been helping families find assisted living in San Diego for ten years.  And I’d be honored to assist you.

What Do You Find in Assisted Living?

All San Diego assisted living communities and homes are non-medical.  However, most still have nurses on site at least during business hours.  But if a senior requires full-time medical care, you may want to look at skilled nursing facilities.

Assisted living San Diego is the right fit if a senior needs help with:

  • Shopping, housekeeping, or meal preparation
  • Personal hygiene and dressing
  • Medications
  • Transportation

A senior will still have options at a San Diego assisted living community.  They can continue to live as independently as possible, but if they need help a caregiver will be there to provide that needed assistance.

Amenities Provided by Assisted Living San Diego:

  • Meals
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Transportation
  • Utilities
  • Activities and outings

The majority of assisted living San Diego communities have studios and one-bedroom apartments, and a few have two-bedroom apartments.  Kitchenettes are most common since meals are provided.  However, some communities have full kitchens for seniors who still enjoy cooking.

If assisted living is what your loved one needs, but you are looking for a more intimate setting, a Board and Care home may be a better fit. Typically, board and care facilities have just six residents, while assisted living communities may have over a hundred.

Client Testimonials

I came across Lise after dealing with several other senior consultants, all of whom were either located out of town or not at all in tune with what I was looking for.

Lise was a “breath of fresh air”, taking the time and patience to learn about my parents and their needs.

She saved me LITERALLY hours upon hours of time and effort by providing me referrals to senior homes that met my criteria.

To say that she knows the San Diego senior market and is very well connected thereto would be an understatement!

At all times, her ONLY concern was getting my parents located in a place that was best for them, and for our family!

I recommend Lise without reservation. You may contact me for a reference/further information about my experience at any time.

Lisa found my mother in law a palace to live in for her final days. Give us tons of information and basically took us through the whole process all without charging a dime. She seems to know everything about everyone of the homes in this area and answered all of our questions at least twice (sorry about that part Lisa 🙂 Some of them on a Sunday afternoon (sorry about that too Lisa)

The place told us they were giving us a discount because they really like her (Lisa that is) which is awesome. Thank you so much for helping my dying relative find such a perfect place to spend what little time she has left.

There is no one better than Lise when it comes to placing a loved one. I have not seen anyone work harder and never give up on the more difficult cases. Being in Senior Care myself you learn quickly who you can trust, and I trust Lise more than any other Senior Care adviser out there!
