Welcome To Parkside Special Care Center


Parkside Special Care Center is a recognized leader in providing care for residents with Alzheimer’s or related dementias.

The first of its kind in San Diego, Parkside offers a unique and specialized environment for caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. When you visit us, you will experience the finest dementia program available. With stimulating interactive devices and programs (including art, music, yoga, live-in pets and much more) our residents find purpose and enjoyment. Trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens adorn the yards and 1-acre park, combing the beauty of nature and freedom in total security.

The dignity of freedom…

To move about without restriction represents the ultimate freedom for an individual with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. Yet this quest for freedom can also present a serious safety concern in protecting your loved one.

Parkside Special Care Center offers exceptional skilled nursing care in safe, secure surroundings. Here doors open to a lush garden and a beautiful one-acre private park…not the street. We’ve achieved great success in caring for individuals with behavioral problems, providing proven intervention and enhancement techniques with an emphasis on minimizing confusion and anxiety. In many cases, behavior improves and residents are again able to enjoy their daily life.


Activities offer fulfillment

Each day, residents are offered a variety of social gatherings and engaging activities designed to entertain, stimulate and improve their quality of life. Arts and crafts, exercise classes, live music, movies, games and patio parties frequently have therapy sessions structured into the program. Because our staff is well versed in Alzheimer’s care, including appropriate interaction training, activities provide enjoyment for all.

Mealtimes are often the most cherished time of the day at Parkside Special Care Center. Our kitchen staff strive to make dining a delicious and enjoyable experience.

For residents who may have a difficult time sitting for a whole meal, a variety of “walking foods” are available.

Comprehensive, individualized plan of care

Parkside Special Care Center was one of the first facilities dedicated exclusively to the care of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Today, we are recognized as a leader in that specialty. Parkside’s experienced caregivers understand the course and effects of the disease, and use this knowledge to develop the most effective plan of care, combining the latest in clinical research with our professional expertise.

Each resident at Parkside Special Care Center receives an individualized assessment to help develop a comprehensive plan of care. Residents also benefit from advanced research findings through our association with the University of California, San Diego’s Alzheimer’s research project and Seniors Only Care (SOCARE). In addition, we provide formal support groups and individual counseling for families to help them cope with the changes they see in their loved ones.

Parkside Special Care Center offers your loved one the security they need… and the care you want them to have.…
