Community Spotlight: Memory Care at Mission Villa

Apr 4, 2022 8:00:00 AM / by Carly Dodd, Pacifica Senior Living

Pacifica Senior Living Mission Villa is a Memory Care community dedicated to offering the very best care and home like environment for those dealing with memory loss, Alzheimer's, or cognitive impairment. Our mission is to foster a community rooted in respect and dignity and provide a comfortable, peaceful home for our Memory Care residents.


Our Legacies philosophy of care is rooted in the Montessori Method which focuses on strengths rather than deficits. We strive to ensure a positive, able-minded approach, rather than focusing on the negatives or the losses that come with memory impairments like dementia. This also means we highlight procedural memories - things like muscle memory, long term memory, and early associations - to help our residents feel at ease despite the sometimes confusing stages of memory loss.


It is important to us that we offer a positive, caring, and compassionate home for seniors to be at peace and be engaged. By offering various modified activities we are able to provide our residents with stimulation and enjoyment, even when their memory may not be what it used to be. Relaxing hand massages, modified games like color bingo, guess that sound, and matching games are great ways for our beloved Memory Care residents to stay active without causing any unneeded stress, frustration or confusion.


Activities and engagement are a key part of what we do at Pacifica Senior Living Mission Villa, and our amazing team of activities staff are always coming up with new fun ways for residents to get involved. Live music performances, sing-alongs, parachute games and gentle strolls are all part of our activity calendar that residents can participate in at their leisure. You can see more activities on their Facebook page here. Be sure to check often as we are always updating with new life enriching activities and events. 


Pacifica Senior Living Mission Villa is an award-winning community that offers a warm and inviting neighborhood that has been thoughtfully designed and adapted for the needs and comfort of our Legacies Memory Care residents. Mission Villa was awarded both the Caring Star by 6 years in a row, and named a 2021 Best of Senior Living community by Senior Advisor for the last 6 years as well. Our team of trained dedicated staff offer the very best care to residents ensuring they feel at home and well looked after within our community.


The team at Mission Villa is so wonderful, in fact, that they recently reached full occupancy!

Our staff has over 112 years combined experience, and we are the best choice, and the only choice for those seeking a memory care community in the Daly City area.


Through research, training, and a passion for helping others we have been able to create an ideal location for seniors with memory issues to call home.
