Frequently Asked Questions

Does Waterford Terrace coordinate local health care (if needed) in the La Mesa, CA area for independent living residents?

In an independent living facility, residents coordinate their own local healthcare. They choose the providers they want to see, schedule their own appointments, and manage their own medications. Benefits to living in an independent living community include free transportation to and from appointments and often close proximity to pharmacies and doctors’ offices.

Residents who would like help coordinating their medical care might consider assisted living services. Assisted living facilities can make appointments, communicate with family members, arrange for transportation, fill prescriptions, and administer medications and treatments ordered by your doctor.
