On my website, I brag endlessly about being able to find senior care all over Placer and El Dorado counties, but it can seem very vague what I'm looking for. In this post, I aim to clarify the specifics of assisted living and care homes in Granite Bay California, and if this goes well I will write about other cities in the area.
Large Assisted Living Communities
In Granite Bay there are a few big players in Assisted Living. The two that stand out are actually across the street from each other, Eskaton Lodge and Country House. Eskaton Lodge Granite Bay is a premium Independent/Assisted Living community and Country House focuses on memory care.
Eskaton is a known brand in this area, and it has a reputation for quality. They have an activities director, a bus for short trips with groups, and a full schedule of things to do as a resident. The food is acceptable when you understand that these communities have to cater to lots of different nutritional needs, and there are ample amenities. Country House is much the same, and if your loved one is social and enjoys the larger community lifestyle then either of these communities are great options.
I make no bones about the fact that I love care homes. I think the care you get for your money is better, I think seniors thrive in a home environment, and the ability to call the administrator directly is amazing. Granite Bay is a small town, but there are a number of care homes that are really exceptional.
Cana Place 1 & 2.
Cana Place 1 & 2 are care homes run by an extremely experienced administrator at the corner of Auburn Folsom and Douglas boulevard. It's very common for successful administrators to have two care homes in close proximity to each other, that way you can have staff go between the two homes when needed. This way you can maintain a high level of care with lower cost, which allows these care homes to be affordable compared to larger communities. The staff at these homes is really what makes this all possible, with many being with the care home for over a decade. I love Cana Place, you can't go wrong with either one, and the administrator is such a pleasure to work with.
Granite Bay Villas
Granite Bay Villas are another example of two facilities run by one administrator, but in this case the homes are next to each other and connected by a continuous yard. This gives the whole situation a real "Villa" feel with the massive back yard. Granite bay villas have outdoor seating and a pool, and have a very family friendly atmosphere. The administrator has two young children who frequent the home, and families are encouraged to bring everyone to visit. In the summer you will see the grandchildren of residents swimming in the pool while older family members sit and visit. This is another situation where you should jump on an availability at either location, you will be equally well served.
There are other Care Homes and Assisted Living options in Granite Bay, this is far from a complete list. Especially when the lines of Granite Bay blur into Loomis and Newcastle, where there are a host of other care options that are stunning and unique.
Give me a call, I would love to show you around any of these care homes, or find something else that fits your needs.
