Stellar Care offers Assisted Living services with a specialty in Memory Care. We are a secure premise that your loved one will be monitored and safe from wandering out unescorted.
The cost of any assisted living or memory and dementia care services in San Diego varies depending on the amenities of the community and the services needed. Stellar Care is a secure community that provides a variety of activities that are best suited for the needs of those living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Pricing at Stellar Care is based on the current level of the prospective resident and the level of care that they would need, based on an assessment by our Assisted Living Services team, prior to moving in.
Once they are a resident, Care Plan meetings with Stellar Care management take place as needed, to check in on and assess the level of care the resident is receiving and if any changes need to take place. Please call or email our team to discuss Stellar Care’s pricing.
According to the California Department of Health Care Services, Assisted Living Waiver eligible individuals are those who are enrolled in Medi-Cal and meet the level of care provided in a nursing facility due to their medical needs. Individuals with Medi-Cal benefits that include a share of cost may not enroll in the ALW.
Stellar Care does not accept San Diego Assisted Living Waivers, we accept private payment plans and long term care insurance payments.
As a community specializing in memory care and care for those living with Alzheimer’s in San Diego, our staff is specially trained to care for and attend to our residents. We use various redirection methods to assist and ease stress and use compassionate truths to comfort confusion, especially during sundowning.
Sundowning is a common symptom of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Many people will experience an urgency to complete their “normal routine” in the evening, even when that hasn’t been their “normal routine” for many years or even decades. These routines may include the urgency to make their commute going home from work, check out of a hotel, cook dinner, or go home and see their family as they would have during their pre-retired life. These are extremely common and normal feelings and our caregivers use redirection and reassurance methods to help soothe the stress & urgency the residents may feel. Getting our residents involved in movie & documentary discussions, puzzles, and other activities can help in these areas as well.
