By JoAnn Mullen See how they prance, those graceful, sequined flag-spinners! Look! Here come the spangled drummers and bugle corps—tubas as gold as sunken suns and music to our ears. Our eyes widen at the sight of all the shiny instruments, bright, jauntily carried as...

“During COVID19, I applaud SC for the great care and effort they are providing to the residents.”
“The pandemic has curtailed many of these (activities), but the staff has done a remarkable job coping and keeping the residents informed and active. We made the right choice to move here.”
“Especially, today in the pandemic, we all so appreciate the community administration and all the staff members diligently care for our welfare, deliver our daily meals, and the designed senior fitness and entertainment programs through ZOOM.”
“When she (my mother) celebrated a milestone birthday during SIP the staff went above and beyond to make sure she had a special day from parades at her balcony singing to her to a cake delivered by the chef and kitchen staff also singing.”
“We still have lovely meals, but they’re delivered to our doorstep to prevent the spread of the virus. Meetings and get-togethers have gone virtual (Thank you Zoom!)”
“Owners & management have done a great job keeping us safe and healthy! Thank you!”
“We’ve been here 6 months and feel like we’re on a cruise with lots of planned activities and great food. The best part of living here are the other residents. They have made us feel very welcomed and accepted.”
“We looked at retirement communities in North San Diego County, and La Costa Glen stood out for its beautiful grounds, nicely appointed living accommodations, and all the available amenities.”
“Gorgeous, well-maintained community with sincere and generous personnel. La Costa Glen is a very desirable home.”
“My mother lives here. It’s wonderful. Beautiful place. Wonderful interesting residents. Caring professional staff. Couldn’t ask for a nicer situation!”
