Good Samaritan Retirement Center is a handsome assisted living community in El Cajon, California. It is within colorful San Diego County which is part of the Golden State.
More than a place to call home, Good Samaritan Retirement Center is a lively, spirited community known for our beautiful grounds, rich cultural life and exciting comprehensive programs covering all aspects of physical, social, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. Our diverse community of residents lead active physical and intellectual lives and are supported by an extraordinary staff.
Established in 2000 by Mother Superior Bernard Ibrahim and the Chaldean Sisters Daughters of Mary Immaculate Conception, this community is a freestanding, notforprofit senior residential independent/assisted living community nestled in the hills of Rancho San Diego, open to seniors 65+ of any denomination or background.
Assisted Living is designed for seniors who want an independent lifestyle, however may need assistance in their Activities of Daily Living. Good Samaritan believes that you should be and feel as independent as possible, at peace, knowing that your specific needs are met promptly, with dignity and safety in mind. These needs may include, but are not limited to: daily meal prep and cleanup, laundry, dressing assistance, incontinence care, bathing, administering medications, transportation to and from pertinent appointments, group activities and companionship.
With our wonderful caregivers, medical technicians, and a Licensed Vocational Nurse on staff we are more than happy to offer assistance with administration of medications, assist with the activities of daily living, perform wellness checks, communicate with physicians, and attend to health concerns that may arise as well as supporting each of our residents to lead fulfilling social lives.
Working closely with residents, families, and physicians, we develop a personal plan of care for each resident’s needs, abilities, and wealth of experiences.
