The Guide to Aging Well

Stay happy and healthy well into your golden years



San Diego retirement communities have been working hard to elevate the experience for their residents while keeping their wellbeing in mind. These are some of the city’s most dynamic retirement communities.

With 20 years of service in San Diego County, Belmont Village Senior Living is a trusted choice for area seniors and their families. Belmont Village’s Cardiff-by-the-Sea and Sabre Springs communities offer independent living, assisted living, and memory care, with round-the-clock nursing, medication management, on-site therapy, and award-winning programming.

Social engagement, essential to overall well-being, is a high priority. Because Belmont’s common areas make up 40 percent of its building spaces, residents can choose from vibrant, enriching small-group activities from the daily activity calendar to stay connected and keep spirits high. Programming is tailored to each resident, allowing for a range of abilities and needs. The building itself is licensed to the highest level of care throughout. This means couples with different care needs can stay together, under one roof. And as needs change, Belmont changes with you, offering the level of care you need for where you are right now.

Local retirees seeking engaging retirement living in San Diego often turn to Senior Resource Group. Its two spectacular locations offer service-enriched lifestyle opportunities as well as safeguards. Their wealth of amenities includes 12-hour restaurant-style dining, innovative programming, transportation services, a spa and heated pool, and cardio, strength, and balance training in the fitness center. In Rancho San Diego, La Vida Real delivers independent and assisted living as well as memory care and boasts an on-site club lounge and bistro, a movie theater, and gardening areas. La Vida Del Mar’s coastal location in Solana Beach combines peaceful serenity with country club elegance.

For more than 30 years, Vi has been redefining how senior living in San Diego looks by adding an air of luxury to the retirement experience. The resort-like Life Plan Community offers upscale amenities, thoughtfully designed apartments, and a continuum of care that can be tailored to suit your changing needs. Vi at La Jolla Village strives to create an environment where residents maintain their independence so they can enjoy all that coastal life has to offer. Aside from the sparkling sand just minutes away, residents can enjoy access to cultural attractions, high-end shops and dining, get back to nature at Torrey Pines State Reserve, and take in the sights and sounds of Balboa Park. Centrally located to many local favorites, Vi at La Jolla Village is a constant reminder of what residents love most about Southern California living.



Food for Thought

It’s a common misconception that retirees are relegated to bland, tasteless food. San Diego seniors have options when it comes to dining. It’s possible to eat healthy while not losing out on flavor. Keep it interesting with new recipes, and jazz up old favorites with herbs, spices, and international flavors.

If you’re after flavor and variety, but also something convenient and tailored to your specific needs, try a meal delivery service. Martha’s Senior Gourmet delivers freshly cooked and nutritionally balanced meals to your home with care. The Southern California service offers home-style meals that adhere to nutritional guidelines for various dietary needs including healthy lifestyle, diabetic, renal, congestive heart failure, gluten sensitive, and more. Meals are prepared using only fresh ingredients and are served in reheatable containers, making Martha’s Senior Gourmet a healthy and affordable alternative to cooking, shopping, and eating out.

Everything in its Place

A cluttered home can pose a safety hazard for seniors who may be experiencing mobility or memory issues. Aside from the increased stress that comes with hanging on to too much stuff, clutter also contributes to the risk of falls, which according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are the leading cause of injury and death in adults 65 and over.

A professional organizer can help you declutter and make sure the items you love, and the ones used most are easily accessible. Bee Organized specializes in simplifying spaces and establishing sustainable organizing systems that could help keep you safe and clutter-free in the long run. Bee Organized’s staff can tackle kitchens, closets, garages, storage spaces, bedrooms, and more, and can also streamline a move into a retirement community or help plan for an estate sale. The pros at Bee Organized help seniors with difficult decisions with compassion and without judgement.
