Types of Facilities in Santa Monica

The size of a memory care facility in Santa Monica can vary from a small, residential “Board and Care” home to a large, resort-hotel style community.


A. Small Memory Care Facilities

Description and Size

Small Board and Care Homes in Santa Monica can accommodate residents suffering from memory loss and are diagnosed with Dementia (Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, etc.). These facilities are regular residential homes in your neighborhood that have been converted to care for 6 to 10 senior residents. These care homes are licensed by California’s Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division and permitted by the City of Santa Monica.


Types of Residents

Memory Care Residents in these board and care homes prefer a “home-like” intimate setting that they are used to at home. While there are many small residential care homes in Santa Monica that provide activities, pet and music therapy, fitness programs and more, these residents prefer to be with a smaller group of seniors. If your Love One has a tendency to wander, first check with the facility owner or administrator to review their resident safety protocol and procedure. Since safety is their number one priority, you may want to compare with other care homes in Santa Monica or also consider a large community with a secured Memory Wing.

Types of Residents

Alzheimer’s residents in a Santa Monica Memory Care Community will typically prefer a large community due to the daily schedule of activities, higher levels of socialization with other residents, chef prepared meals, music and pet therapy, music and art classes, fitness classes and regular outings.
