New Life Plan Community Opening Soon in San Diego
Have you seen the new senior housing communities? If you think of them as “old folks homes” with people playing bingo, bridge and shuffleboard, you should get out there. You’d be amazed. Some people say it’s like living on a cruise ship or at a resort.
We’ve recently learned of a great new Life Plan Community called The Glen at Scripps Ranch in San Diego. If you aren’t familiar with Life Plan Communities, also known as continuing care retirement communities, they offer independent living with housing, services, activities, amenities and dining.
A health center providing assisted living, memory care and long-term care is usually located nearby for residents who need a higher level of care. Most Life Plan programs are available in exchange for a one-time, repayable entrance fee and a monthly service fee.
What I like about The Glen is it will be brand new when it opens later this year. It’s also centrally located to just about everything that makes San Diego such a great place to live. It’s a quick jaunt to the beach, Gaslamp District, downtown and the airport. Plus, it’s down the road from Viejas Arena, home of the San Diego State University Aztec basketball team (my red and black are showing).
The Glen is for people 60 years of age and older. It offers different floor plans, a ton of amenities and activities, transportation and access to the health center if you ever need it.

Awesome Food and Amenities
Food is a big deal for me and variety is incredibly important. The Glen’s clubhouse will have several dining options – some formal, some not. It will also house a lounge, fitness center and spa, pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. Pickleball and tennis courts, a movie theater and a performing arts theater will also be on property. And dog owners will actually have their own dog park. No need to leave the community so your dog can run around and socialize.
