General Information

Rancho Vista is a property of the Elmcroft group that offers services in all of the following: Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing. It is a large assisted living community on a busy street of Vista, California. Road noise does not seem to be a problem. Its capacity is a total of 90 residents for the Independent Living and Assisted Living sections of the community. The property has both a Memory Care unit and a Skilled Nursing facility, which is directly adjacent to the Assisted Living building.

This “multi-level retirement community” was designed to offer a tidy, home-like environment to seniors of all ages. Every new resident will undergo a care assessment upon move-in and once more after 30 days to validate the initial resident plan. The community has modern updates with plenty of lighting. Its residents have the option to enjoy restaurant-style dining with table settings.

Rancho Vista also offers various resident enrichment programs, such as its “Vitality Club” and “Second Wind Dreams” programs. The Vitality Club encourages a healthy, vibrant life with new hobbies, while its Second Wind Dreams program aims to fulfill the lifelong dreams of its residents.

Note, there are four levels of care: E Level, L Level, M Level, and M+ Level. Please contact the staff at Rancho Vista for specific details on each level of care.

Community Amenities & Activities

Building Features: The main entry of Rancho Vista looks like it was recently renovated. As you take a short walk through the front lobby to the dining room, there are elegantly set dinner tables with dishes, silverware, napkins and menus. Residents can take another short stroll to the library and activity rooms to start the day or enjoy a few moments of solitude. The suites in all sections of the community have comfortable, natural lighting. However, each of the rooms feature older wooden closets, dated fixtures and kitchenettes. On the other hand, there were renovations to the Skilled Nursing area but the bedrooms are not updated.

For its Independent Living residents, Rancho Vista features both 1 and 2 bedroom villas with large, complete kitchens, and washers and dryers (if applicable). As you might expect, the apartments (and kitchens) in the Assisted Living side of the community decrease in size.
