Vista Gardens Memory Care is a special and unique community that treats their senior residents with the respect and dignity they deserve. These residents have been affected by memory issues including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s-related dementia, and mild cognitive impairment. However, they still love to be cognitively challenged and meet in the “Family Room” every evening. Grab your group and simply love on these seniors by participating in a game night !
Games: There is a selection of games on-site to choose from such as Bingo, UNO and others. Bingo is the MOST popular amongst the residents!!! There are typically 8-12 people that will gather for evening activities. They love to socialize and play games. Be prepared to have fun and lead the game-night, but please be flexible as there are different cognitive levels. Most of the residents have some level of dementia (some more than others). If you plan to play BINGO, please bring a small prize (Dollar Tree prizes are usually great but no candy please!), because they love to win prizes.
Child-Friendly? Sorry, not at this time due to Covid. However, please check back because at a later time we’d love to allow families with children.
Covid Vaccination: The facility asks that volunteers are vaccinated and show proof of vaccination to the receptionist upon arrival (no copies needed).
Arrival: When you arrive at the property, the gated-entrance will open automatically but there is a call-box if needed. Vista Gardens is a locked facility, so the receptionist will open the front doors as guests arrive. Just mention that you are from North Coast Church and you will be directed to the activity room.
Questions: Team Leader, Juanita Minick, [email protected] or 760.310.8823. Email is preferred.
Other Nights Also Available: If you’d like to schedule another day of the week to play Bingo, the home is very flexible and will try to accommodate groups if they are able. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights work well with advance notice. Please contact the team leader above to make arrangements.
