Assisted Living, Memory Care
Assisted Living: $6,000, Memory Care: Not Listed
With only a small number of residents, Bay Harbour Care Home has an intimate, home-like feel that can't be emulated in a bigger community. There are views across the San Francisco Bay, which residents can enjoy from the dining room, the decks surrounding the community and the sun-drenched common room. Social interaction between the residents is encouraged to help maintain brain function. The community aims to build on the strengths of each senior with care services customized to meet their individual needs. A range of socially engaging activities are offered daily, which along with community events, provide plenty of opportunities for interaction. With a safety-first approach to care, family members can be rest assured their loved one is looked well after. Three nutritional balanced meals are provided daily, served in the communal dining room.
What Residents are Saying:
Visitors noted the home-like feel to the community and caring staff, with one visitor saying, "The dining room was OK. It was fine, but it was different. It was not a facility, it was a home, so it had a whole different feeling... and the people that run it were very nice. The staff was nice as well."
