Frequently Asked Questions

What reasons might a La Mesa, CA independent living resident be discharged?

Independent living residents can be discharged when the facility is no longer able to meet their needs. This may occur following a serious illness or injury, but sometimes changes occur slowly over time that make discharge necessary.

Independent living facilities are not staffed or licensed to provide medical or personal care to residents. If you require assistance with activities like bathing, eating, toileting, or dressing, independent living may not be able to provide the services you need to stay well. In this case, an Executive Director will work closely with you (and your family, if you desire) to help you transition to a facility that is able to meet your needs.

On rare occasion, discharge occurs because of violation of the community’s rules, like smoking in a non-smoking community.
