The best place for
your best days
Mission Villa is the newest addition to our residential care facilities serving San Diego county. Our mission is to ensure a better quality of life for our elderly clients and their families, by providing exceptional care and service to our residents, family members and friends.
We create warm, home-like settings for older adults who want to live their life with choice. Whether that includes an active social schedule or a more slow-paced way of life, our respect for each resident's individuality and dignity is at the center of all that we do.
Our clients include:
Seniors and the chronically disabled who aren't ready for an institutional setting or who live with relatives, but because of illness or chronic conditions, safety becomes an issue when their family is not around. We provide these people help with simple activities that are exhausting for them and this enables them to save their energy for the important things in life, such as:
· connecting with friends or family,
· taking a short walk, or
· reading a good book.
Many times, caring for a resident involves family, so we play a role in providing a respite for the primary family caregiver, i.e. wife caring for a husband or a daughter/son caring for their parents.
Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress, because the caregiver's focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often we see that when we give relief with daily routines, allowing the family caregiver(s) more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens.
The inside tour of the facility reveals an atmosphere filled with quaint decors and antiques just like home. Situated in the heart of Mission Valley hotel district, there are no elevators to take or stairs to climb in these single level homes, just a caring staff with warm hearts. Two side by side houses, each house licensed for 6 beds, Mission Villa is small enough to provide a personal approach to our care for our residents and at the same time, large enough to provide interaction and a sense of community among residents..
Our Care Philosophy
Our elders want, need, and deserve autonomy over their daily lives. The traditional institutional model that has been dominant in the care of our elders has many shortcomings. The plagues of the human spirit run rampant in these cold, sterile, social and physical environments. Our elders need and deserve an opportunity for a life worth living, not just time spent waiting to die.
We define elders as someone who, by virtue of life experience, is here to teach us. By definition, being an elder has little to do with age.
This concept is based on the the Eden Alternative Philosophy and Mission Villa fully supports this philosophy.
