Why Sunshine Care?

Personalized Dementia Care in San Diego with a Heart

At Sunshine Care, we treat your loved ones as members of our own family. Our overriding goal is to ensure that each one of our residents receives the physical, emotional and spiritual care that we all deserve.

What is memory care?

Sunshine Care is a retirement community in San Diego that specializes in memory care, which is the long-term care, support and therapy for seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our memory care unit offers innovative cognitive therapy activities that our residents enjoy while simultaneously stimulating their brains. We are proud to be a leading provider of dementia care in San Diego. If you’re still unsure what memory care is, learn more here.

Our Unique Pricing Model

Seniors can be forced out of some communities by rates increasing for incontinence, escalating personal care needs, enhanced security measures required for wandering and elopement safety, oxygen management, 2-person transfers, Hoyer lifting, night care, catheter care and/or colostomy care. But not at Sunshine Care! At our memory care assisted living facility, we include the above, as well as medication management, laundry services and special cognitive programs that are appropriate to the individual are also included in the locked rate. This allows our residents’ families to budget for the future no matter what needs occur for their loved ones, making estate planning very simple.

To assist with estate planning, your base rate will be locked for your loved one’s stay and is all inclusive. Due to our unique pricing model, as we provide the increased care that is needed for your loved one, your costs will remain the same or be reduced and relocked at a lower rate. Your base rate will only be affected by cost of living increases or decreases that effect all of us annually, which have been between 1% and 3% over the past five years. In addition, a greatly reduced Entry Level rate is available. Should your loved one have a diagnosis of MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) and does not require awake night care, they could be eligible for this reduced rate. This special Entry Level rate does not lock until the next level of care is reached.

ALL PROGRAMS QUALIFY FOR OUR LOCKED RATES THAT NEVER INCREASE AND CAN ONLY RE-LOCK AT A LOWER RATE, EVEN IF THE CARE REQUIREMENTS INCREASE DURING YOUR STAY.

A Unique Model of Care

One aspect that truly sets Sunshine Care apart from other memory care assisted living communities is our four-level model of care. Alzheimer’s and dementia are progressive diseases, which means your loved one will need an increasing level of care as time goes on. While other facilities, as a resident’s decline progresses, may keep them mixed in with a general population, our memory care unit follows a different code – a better code.

At Sunshine Care, our residents start in their own private rooms within the shared homes with others who require a similar level of care. As a resident’s condition and needs of care progresses, a resident will move into a new home/level to receive more assistance and supervision. All of our homes are on our campus, so the transitions are smooth and less disruptive. At each level of care, your loved one will receive the support, patience, and medical assistance he or she needs to continue to enjoy a high quality of life.

A Commitment to Intergenerational Programming

We firmly believe that when different generations meet, everyone is better for it. Children learn tolerance, patience and empathy from our residents, while the children make our residents feel young again. Sunshine Care is an award-winning leader in the development of intergenerational programming.

Every week, groups of school children from the local community come to visit their surrogate grandmas and grandpas at our Alzheimer’s and dementia care facility in San Diego. Together, our residents and their new friends learn important lessons as they work together to build crafts, bake cookies or grow organic fruits and vegetables in our garden. By lesson planning with the local teachers, the residents and children are both a part of the learning process. Learn more about our intergenerational programs. [Learn more]

Horticulture Therapy

One of the most unique things that separates Sunshine Care from other retirement communities in San Diego is our popular and successful Horticultural Therapy program. Our campus includes multiple vegetable gardens and fruit orchards, as well as a 1,000 square-foot greenhouse. Every year, with the help of our residents, to the extent of those who are willing, interested and capable, the horticulture staff grows over 20,000 pounds of delicious, organic fruit and vegetables. Most of these crops end up on our menus, providing nutritious and delicious meals for our memory care unit residents. What isn’t used at Sunshine Care is donated to needy families in the area. The greenhouse provides a natural setting for activities and social events.

Our Horticulture Therapy program is a fun way to encourage focus, exercise, confidence and a reconnection with nature. Sunshine Care has also established and monitors horticultural and growing programs in over 20 schools and churches in the area.

Our beloved Seed-to-Table program, which is open to the Community, pairs residents who choose to participate with the young children from the community. Together, young and old gardeners plant seeds, care for the seedlings and eventually pick the ripe fruits and vegetables.

We Are the Gold Standard

Sunshine Care is truly unique from other memory care assisted living programs. Our care model ensures that every resident receives personalized care. Our activity program is filled with engaging and rewarding adventures. Our retirement community in San Diego County is truly beautiful and uplifting, and our highly-trained staff is second-to-none. The best way to fully understand what sets Sunshine Care apart from the rest is to come visit and see for yourself!
