Welcome to



When in-home care is no longer possible, and your loved one has a deteriorating medical condition or needs help with the basic activities of daily living, you may need to consider a skilled nursing facility.  

Skilled nursing centers are licensed and regulated by the California Department of Public Health. They provide 24-hour nursing care to residents who are seriously ill, injured, have memory loss or are recovering from surgery and in need of rehabilitation to return home.  

Elder Care California is designed to help you find the right location, ask the right questions and understand how to get the best possible care during a difficult time.
