Longevity of staff members is a sign that an organization is meeting the needs of employees, which in turn helps them meet the needs of residents. Nearly 20% of the staff at Casa have served for 10 years or more, and many of these professionals have dedicated their careers to improving the lives of seniors.

As the only not-for-profit Life Plan Community in San Diego County offering a Type A contract, Casa provides an exceptional value for older adults who want financial protection from the rising costs of senior care. Casa residents have the peace of mind that comes with having a plan for future health care, without having to worry about relocating if you or your spouse needs a higher level of care.

Focused on Serving You

A not-for-profit senior living community is guided by its resident-focused mission, vision, and values, and you can trust that funds are reinvested into the community for the benefit of those who live there now and will in the future.
