One of her favorite things about working at Inland is the comradery among the staff and the fact that the residents care for the staff as much as the staff cares for them. She loves that her job allows her to love the residents she cares for without reservation and that every day brings something new.

Our Levels of Living & Care
Inland Christian Home provides many different levels of care. These levels include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Adult Daycare, and Skilled Nursing. Our aging in place concept allows residents a choice in how they receive care and encourages them to live as independently as possible with the lowest required level of support or care. We want Inland to be their home, a place where all are treated as individuals and given choices in the way they live. The availability of different levels of care and services, on the same grounds, offer some very unique advantages. Residents may continue to reside in the community even as their abilities change, achieve peace of mind knowing that their needs are met, and remain close to their spouses, friends, and family.
Inland Christian Home is licensed as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) by the Department of Social Services. A CCRC must follow specific standards set by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS), providing our residents additional assurance that they are living in a well-managed community.

We are more than just a place to live, we are a place people are happy to call home.
