Community size: Extra Large (100+)
Beach Cities Memory Care is a splendid assisted living community in Redondo Beach, California. It is within dynamic Los Angeles County which is part of the Golden State.
Located just a half mile from the ocean in Redondo Beach, near Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes, El Segundo and convenient to all of the South Bay, Silverado Beach Cities is more than just assisted living, it is specialized memory care.
Specializing in memory care and dementia care allows us to provide for residents whose needs have grown beyond what more generalized senior living communities offer. Our philosophy is built around offering a skilled staff that delivers the best care possible, enriching lives and focusing on the wellbeing of residents’ minds, spirits and bodies.
While it exists under the umbrella of assisted living, memory care includes a higher degree of clinical care to provide for the special needs of those with Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, Parkinson’s and other dementia-causing disorders. Memory care is often provided in a separate area of an assisted living facility, though some providers such as Silverado operate facilities wholly dedicated to it.
Due to the necessities of caring for those with dementia, memory care generally includes these services:
- Skilled 24-hour care, supervision and personal assistance with activities of daily living
- Activities and programs to help residents retain cognitive function
- Exercises, therapy and physical activities to retain physical abilities
- Health management, including medication management and specialists in preventing common dementia-related complications
- Specially-designed surroundings to keep residents safe
- Neighborhoods providing different levels of care to meet the needs of residents at different stages of the disease (at Silverado these are Nexus, Enrichment and Sensory)
Each community provides expert clinical care led by a Physician Medical Director (many memory care providers have only one medical director for their entire company – we have one at each community). Licensed nurses are on-site around the clock. Every Silverado associate receives training in dementia and how it affects the residents with whom they work. The communities are arranged into three neighborhoods providing different levels of care to meet the needs of residents at different stages of the disease (Nexus, Enrichment and Sensory).
Communities provide a warm, comfortable environment that features pets and often children. Independence and socializing are encouraged as ways to help residents maintain function and ability.
While amenities such as gourmet food, engagements, social events, pets and clinical staff are common among Alhambra assisted living providers, there is a difference when it comes to experience and care. We have been leading the way in memory care for 20 years. Discover the Silverado difference.
By providing a higher level of service with a focus on comfort and clinical care, we hope to raise the standard of quality for the entire assisted living industry.
