What are the Levels of Living at Casa de las Campanas?


The future is always uncertain. But while you can’t predict the future, you can plan for all the possible outcomes by choosing a senior living community like Casa de las Campanas. As the only not-for-profit Type A Life Plan Community in San Diego County, Casa de las Campanas helps you enjoy life today and provides a smart and practical plan for your future. That’s because as a Life Plan Community, we offer an active and engaging independent living lifestyle combined with the peace of mind of access to our full continuum of care — assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation — should you ever need it. 

If you’re currently reviewing your senior living options, this blog post will focus on the levels of care available to our residents.

Assisted Living

Our team members work with current residents to develop a personal care plan based on your abilities and any needed support services. A licensed vocational nurse and a team of nursing assistants are available 24/7 to help you with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming and medication management. You’re free to join in activities, socialize, and enjoy your hobbies as often as you like.

Memory Care

The Palmer Special Care Residence at Casa de las Campanas offers a supportive care environment to create purposeful days. Specially trained team members combine expertise and compassion to provide thoughtful Alzheimer’s care in San Diego. Our homelike environment is as secure as it is comfortable, and activities are designed for residents’ unique needs. That includes a nationally recognized Heartfelt CONNECTIONS — A Memory Care Program®. This program focuses on your loved one’s remaining abilities and celebrates small achievements to encourage their confidence and sense of self.

Skilled Nursing

We offer hands-on attention in a warm and supportive environment. Our team gets to know each resident’s personality, as well as their medical conditions, to provide a personalized care plan and a fulfilling day-to-day experience.

  • Long-term care: This level of care is for chronic conditions that require daily attention. Our team members provide expert senior care services with compassion.
  • Short-term care: Designed to help you recover after an illness, injury or hospital stay, our team helps with activities of daily living, wound care and short-term rehabilitation.


After an illness, injury or hospital stay, the right short-term rehabilitation can help get you back to doing what you enjoy as quickly as possible. Our team members have diverse rehabilitation expertise and work together to create an individualized care plan for your unique needs and personality. Our expertly delivered services include occupational, speech and physical therapies.
