Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Our facility is specially equipped to take care of residents with Alzheimer’s and related Dementias. We secure the home’s perimeter with the help of our qualified and nurturing staff who work 24 hours a day to provide continuous care and supervision.

We believe that good caregiving embraces the mind, body, and spiritual needs of each person. To provide this to our residents, our staff assists them with personal day-to-day activities such as:

  • Dressing and Grooming

  • Eating and Mobility Tasks

  • Toileting and Incontinence Care

  • Assisted Bathing

  • On-Site Hair Stylist, Physician, and Podiatrist

Your relatives will be living in a safe and secure environment. Here, they will be treated with the utmost respect and consideration.

Reliable Security Measures

This is a secure facility. All doors are equipped with electronic monitors and the grounds are fenced. Our home is located one block away from the Sycuan Fire Department. Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) typically take less than five minutes to arrive after we call 911.

Caring Programs

Our care program is flexible enough to adapt to the special needs of those who require assistance with daily living. We address all necessary aspects and emphasize the person’s unique nature and limitations.

This program encourages healthy and active self-determination whenever possible in a safe and structured environment. Our activities enable each resident to stay active and alert while enjoying life. Each resident is free to set their own agenda, but they are also encouraged to participate in the home’s fun organized activities.

A Strong Religious Foundation

Our home is rooted in a strong Christian heritage. We believe good caregiving embraces the mind, body, and spiritual needs of each individual. We welcome you to visit and experience the peaceful setting and beauty of our home.

The Inspiration Behind Our Lovely Home

When our mother, Norma, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, we moved her to California to find a good home that would take care of her. However, the first two facilities she lived in disappointed us. Determined to give her only the best, we decided to build our own residential care facility for our mother and others like her.

This was our motivation for building Aerie Meadows Care Home in El Cajon, CA.  Residents will be under complete supervision where they will be received with the dignity and respect they deserve. Sadly, she never saw the facility’s completion, but we know that she would have been pleased with what we accomplished and what we continue to do.

Assisted Living Testimonials

Dear John and Jan,

You two, along with your employees, are a huge blessing to all of us. You are the answer to our prayers. Thank you for your constant, loving, wonderful care of Mom. I wish all seniors could have someone like you two as a part of their lives.

- Darlene

Dear John & Jan,

Thank you both for taking such good care of my grandmother over the last few years. It was so good to know she was happy and safe there. It took special people and a lovely place to make her happy about leaving her home. I can’t imagine all the sleepless nights you had, but you just kept smiling and trying to keep the ladies comfortable.

- Shannon


When we think back more than two years ago, we were concerned about moving Mom from her home to a care facility. However, we found very quickly that she enjoyed her new home & friends at Aerie Meadows. The love and care shown by you and John plus the rest of your staff are so greatly appreciated. We noticed your attention to all the little things that made her comfortable. Her medical needs were always handled immediately and in a professional manner. You became a close friend and she loved you. You could see it in her smile. Our thanks and our love to you.

- From our Family, with love, Dick & Isabelle
