About Crescent Landing at Santa Ana Memory Care

Levels of Care: Memory Care

Welcome Home to Crescent Landing at Santa Ana Memory Care!

Crescent Landing at Santa Ana (formally known as Sunflower Memory Care) is a premier Memory Care community in the Santa Ana area that serves the Orange County region, including Anaheim, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Garden Grove, San Dimas, and San Clemente. Residents come from all over California and beyond.

There is no shortage of things to do and see in the Santa Ana area. Disneyland is only 8 miles away, but there are many more attractions in the area for visiting families to enjoy. Popular spots include the Santa Ana Zoo, Bowers Museum, and the Santa Ana Historic District. For relaxing outings, there are a number of beautiful parks in the area, including Irvine Regional Park. We have world-class shopping at South Coast Plaza, as well as wonderful events at the Orange County Museum of Art and Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Crescent Landing at Santa Ana is a recognized leader in Memory Care. We take great pride in our reputation which has been built by a team of dedicated staff and medical personnel. Our services are designed to meet our residents’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Before a resident moves into the community, customized assessments are completed so individual care plans can be created. These plans are updated frequently and when any change in needs has occurred. In addition to the Medical Director, our community is staffed by highly trained nurses who are hired not only for their professional skills but also for their compassionate and warm personalities. Our Executive Director also holds her LVN credentials.
