Valley Crest Memory Care: Leaning into Love “We Know Is Possible”

When choosing the right place for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, it’s important to visit all memory communities before a final decision is made.

Valley Crest Memory Care offers exceptional caregivers and a quality of care that is “priceless.” The setting feels more like home and very welcoming as you enter the front door.

Executive Director Renee Lesley explains that “caregiving often requires us to lean into love we didn’t know possible.” She feels that Valley Crest offers the best devoted and passionate caregivers in the High Desert. “Our winning team is what truly sets us apart from other memory care communities,” she says.

Linda Aguilar, community relations manager for Valley Crest, invites anyone who is considering a memory care residence to come over and take a tour. It’s important for people to see why their grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, aunt, uncle or other relative would feel at home there.

“Alzheimer’s affects 5.4 million Americans, and when families can no longer care for their loved one at home, we offer them peace of mind by providing specialized quality care. The disease process is hard on everyone in the family,” explains Aguilar.

The majority of the staff have been committed long-term to the residents and their family members, giving them a feeling of stability and caring dedication.

Valley Crest encourages family members and friends to participate in the on-site caregiver support groups and educational workshops held regularly to help them through the process.

According to Aguilar, “our residents know this is their home, dining room, living room, and back yard.” Family members are welcome to come over often, and many are there daily to visit with their loved one.

Socialization is an important part of our residents’ daily activity. Staff members encourage them to move freely around the community by participating in the walking program. They can say “hello” to their neighbors or just go outside and enjoy their own backyard, with a grassy area, gazebo, and beautiful shade trees.

Supporting members of the team include Business Office Manager Valerie Hammond, and Directors Angela Breedlove (Resident Care), Jennifer Perkins (Activities), Triva Stumbaugh (Dining Services), and Will Marine (Environmental Services).

Valley Crest is a Pacifica Senior Living community, where the management team understands that every individual ages differently and are prepared to handle a variety of needs as they exist now or develop over time.

Care levels at Valley Crest range from basic to advanced, through “end of life.” Come for a tour of Valley Crest Memory Care, and learn about the levels of care and all-inclusive plans (meals, life enrichment programs, linens and personal laundry, daily housekeeping, wellness checks, medication management, and much more).
