About GranVida Senior Living and Memory Care

GranVida is an Assisted Living & Memory Care community that provides exceptional person-centered holistic care to residents.

Located in the heart of Santa Barbara County, our community is nestled along the most beautiful coastline in California. Whether your loved one is moving in from Ventura, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, or anywhere else, they will feel fall in love with the environment at GranVida.

It’s no secret that requiring Activity of Daily Living (ADL) assistance or facing a memory-illness diagnosis is trying on a family and their loved one. At GranVida, we understand the need to ensure your loved one is cared for, so we treat every resident as if they were a member of our own family.

When they move into our community, your loved one will immediately gain access to a top-notch care staff that works around the clock to ensure their comfort and health. Residents enjoy meals in a warm, social environment three times per day, and there are always fun social events to keep things interesting.

But what truly separates GranVida is our award-winning SPARK program. This program helps residents live a purposeful and fulfilling lifestyle by focusing on improving existing skills and creating an inclusive environment.

You’ll see the family-like atmosphere for yourself when you visit for a free tour and consultation. Schedule your meeting with a GranVida representative today to see the community’s magic yourself!

Our award-winning SPARK program guides everything we do as an organization. The heart of that program aims to ignite the “SPARK” in every resident. It’s a cultural atmosphere you and your loved ones will recognize immediately once you step through our doors.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll be greeted by our friendly concierge. They’ll help make sure your loved one’s first days are comfortable and that they experience the full range of what the community has to offer. 

As your loved one settles into a routine, their days may include various activities of their choosing which can be conveniently arranged by our Lifestyle Director. Additionally, our Housekeeping and Maintenance teams will keep their apartment in ship-shape every week. And when they need to visit an off-site location, we’ll coordinate transportation to ensure that they arrive timely.

Mind, Body & Soul
  • Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy
  • Group Exercise Classes
  • Community Outings
  • Religious Services
  • Interactive Learning

Healthy living includes the mind, body, and spirit, and our caregivers work every day to help residents live a healthy lifestyle. 

Our community includes daily exercise classes with other residents so they can stay fit and limber. And when they just want to get the blood flowing, we offer abundant outdoor opportunities for a brisk walk through the lovely surrounding area. 

Additionally, Lifelong Learning – as part of our signature SPARK program – provides residents with a source of continued growth. They may hear from guest speakers, attend small and large group crafts, or engage in painting programs and interactive lectures. These programs are essential for stimulating the mind as well as the body. 

Religion is essential to many of our staff and residents – and we’re happy to welcome all denominations. We offer dedicated space for various services, gatherings, and other interests to review, read, sing, discuss, or otherwise fulfill your desire to seek or pursue a warm and familiar experience.

What really impressed me was the people. They seem so friendly and want to help make the residents feel like a family.
