The Huntington Memory Care Community
Alhambra, CA 91801
An elegant 1920’s style community located on a tree-lined lane off Huntington Drive in Alhambra, Silverado The Huntington is designed to provide those with memory problems the security, stimulation, pampering and ambiance they deserve. The Huntington is a perfect blend of historic elegance and modern innovation, a bright, lively atmosphere where residents socialize and engage in a huge variety of stimulating activities, particularly pursuing interests that were important to them before their diagnosis.
Silverado’s team is trained to provide individualized care that is focused just as much on mind and spirit as it is on body. From residents in the initial stages of memory impairment to those needing an advanced level of care, ensuring health, comfort and dignity is our guiding force. From the delightful smell of fresh-baked cookies to the wagging tail of Nico, the community’s beagle, it’s instantly clear that Silverado’s approach to memory care is something special.
