Escondido Memory Care Community
Escondido, CA 92026
Located on a hilltop overlooking the surrounding valley, Silverado Escondido provides care for those with memory impairment in an environment that is compassionate, warm and stimulating. The community’s bright, lively atmosphere serves as a setting for residents socializing and engaging in a huge variety of stimulating activities, particularly interests that were important to them before their diagnosis. From the delightful smell of fresh-baked cookies to the wagging tail of Toby, the community’s golden retriever, it’s instantly clear that Silverado’s approach to memory care is to provide more than just assisted living.
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 those in the initial stages of memory impairment to those needing an advanced level of dementia care, ensuring residents’ health, comfort and dignity is the foundation upon which Silverado was built.
