Allow Your Loved One to Age in Place within Our Community

Sunshine Care is the only memory care community that offers four distinct levels of care in a residential setting. Alzheimer’s and dementia are progressive diseases, which means your loved one will require a growing level of care over time. At other communities, this may mean moving your parent or loved one to a completely different location. Additionally, this may mean keeping them within a community of residents with varying and lower levels of dementia where your loved one may not receive the care and attention they need or be socially comfortable.

At Sunshine Care, quality of life and quality of care are heightened when we place residents of similar physical and cognitive capabilities in the same atmosphere.  Our residents can start to age in place in their own private room within our shared upscale homes, and their families can achieve peace of mind knowing Sunshine Care will always be able to provide the care their loved one needs at each stage of the dementia process. Every new resident is carefully assessed by our highly trained staff and placed in the level that best supports their care needs.

Access — All general population areas on our property allow walkers and wheelchairs.

Level 1

Scenic hill top views of the city and mountains delight the senses in a beautiful ranch home that accommodates up to six residents. A professional caregiver lives in the home 24 hours a day. This live-in arrangement minimizes shift changes, promotes continuity of our hallmark personalized service and forwards bonding with the resident and their family. Residents reside in private rooms in a comfortable upscale setting.

Each gated home is set in gardens surrounded by walking paths, fountains, tree shaded patios, organic orchards, with a large greenhouse nearby. The careful construction of the Level 1 Care Program allows residents to enjoy partial independence with the continuous personal support and supervision of a highly trained live-in caregiver.

Your loved one will enjoy:

  • Private bedroom and bathroom accommodations
  • Three nutritious meals a day and snacks developed with the aid of a UCSD dietitian
  • Assistance with bathing, toileting, dressing, personal grooming, hygiene, and minor incontinence
  • Medication monitoring
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • In-house visits by physicians and psychiatrists (based on insurance)
  • Transfer assistance
  • Ongoing supervision

 

Level 2

 

Residents in the Level 2 Care Program enjoy all of the accommodations of the Level 1 Care Program, with the addition of a second caregiver in the home. This additional staff member provides extra day and nighttime supervision and assistance when needed. Residents reside in private rooms in a comfortable, upscale group setting. An awake nighttime caregiver is always available to provide assistance to those who need attention at any hour of the night.

This level is appropriate for residents who are waking up at night, experience more than minor incontinence, have episodes of wandering, and otherwise require care and assistance on a regular basis.

Your loved one will enjoy:

  • Private bedroom and bathroom accommodations
  • Three nutritious meals a day and snacks developed with the aid of a UCSD dietitian
  • Assistance with bathing, toileting, dressing, personal grooming, hygiene, and incontinence
  • Medication monitoring
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • In-house visits by physicians and psychiatrists (based on insurance)
  • Transfer assistance

Level 3

 

Residents enjoy state-of-the-art accommodations with a semi-private 24-bed facility. Their days are spent in a large beautiful great room setting with two fireplaces, a bird aviary, and fish aquarium. Ten foot California doors are open, weather permitting, to the lovely patio, where your loved one can enjoy fountains, trees, and colorful flowers. This is a bright, cheerful, and stimulating atmosphere with plenty of opportunities for activities and social interaction.

Residents at this level require more care. They receive all of the benefits and support included in the first two levels of care, as well as:

  • Assistance with all activities of daily living, like bathing, toileting, grooming, and feeding
  • Moderate to maximum supervision 24 hours a day
  • Two person transfer assist
  • Enhanced attention for confusion and wandering
  • Engaging activities appropriate for this level of dementia

 

Level 4

 

Our newly remodeled 32-bed facility provides semi-private rooms, a courtyard with fountains, and guided walking paths to help residents continue to enjoy daily living. Our beautiful outdoor patios and winding pathways are wheelchair friendly, so even non-ambulatory residents can enjoy the delightful outdoors. Our goal at this level of care is comfort, dignity, and the joy of living in the moment.

Hospice services are available as well.

Residents at this level are in the latter stages of the dementia process and may require complete assistance with all activities of daily living and the highest level of supervision and security. Additional care may include:

  • Dining assistance
  • Hoyer lift transfers
  • Catheter care
  • Oxygen
  • Colostomy care
