If you’re looking for assisted living, San Diego has dozens of options. It’s a good and bad problem to have. Trying to find the right care type and setting for your loved one can be challenging. While there are many quality care options out there, not every assisted living home or assisted living San Diego community is going to be the right fit for every senior.
Elder Answers will help you find the most appropriate assisted living setting in San Diego County for your loved one. Our service is completely free to families and will give you specific solutions based on your personal circumstances. Elder Answers has been helping families find assisted living for nearly ten years and has long term relationships with care facilities throughout San Diego County. These relationships help Elder Answers to identify the best options for your loved one in an environment that will match the care needs and personality of the senior.
Do Your Elders Need Assisted Living San Diego?
Not sure whether your loved one needs assisted living or another type of eldercare? An assisted living facility is the right choice for many seniors, but it is not appropriate for everyone.
Assisted living is appropriate when an elder requires help with personal care or help with household chores like making meals and cleaning the house.
An assisted living facility provides more in the way of care than a retirement community, but offers a similar level of independence.
Is Assisted Living Right For Your Elder Loved One?
Assisted living San Diego may be right for your elderly family member if:
- They have a difficult time performing everyday tasks like showering, walking, or getting dressed.
- They can’t drive any more.
- They feel lonely and need more to do.
At a San Diego assisted living facility, your loved one can continue to live as independently as possible. But if they need extra help, a caregiver will always be there to lend a hand.
With more than 100 assisted living communities located throughout San Diego county, there is a home for every senior. Small, close-knit communities are available, as are larger facilities. The majority of the communities have studios and one-bedroom apartments, and some even have two-bedroom apartments. Kitchenettes are common, but full kitchens are available for seniors who still enjoy cooking.
Assisted living communities provide only non-medical care, but some also have memory care and nursing staff if needed.

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

We will help you figure out if an assisted living community is the most appropriate choice for your loved one, or if another type of eldercare would be a better fit. Based on your senior’s health and social needs, we will suggest those San Diego assisted living facilities that will provide the type of care and lifestyle you are looking for.

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!
