Experience the Best Care in Boutique Senior Living
Our mission at The Groves of Tustin is to help you discover personal solutions for optimal well-being. Our nurturing, expert care staff undergo extensive hours of ongoing training and education.

We offer convenient scheduling for on-site visits as well as coordination services for physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, podiatrists and more, all offered in an authentic, gracious and dignified manner. We take an all-encompassing approach to caregiving by considering each person as a whole, including emotional, social and physical factors. The community’s 24-hour emergency response and pendant system gives residents confidence that any emergency will receive swift action from our on-site staff. From the concierge to the emergency responders, someone is always close by to help our residents.
At The Groves of Tustin, our individually tailored programs provide the stability and safety needed with the independence our residents desire. We strive to enhance your experience with special attention to customizing our support around your lifestyle.

But, don’t take our word for it, come see for yourself!
In addition to our vibrant lifestyle, personalized care plans are individually created for each resident. We are proud that no two care plans are the same, as each resident’s needs are as unique as they are.
We embrace an innovative approach to memory care, an engagement-focused philosophy and a belief that every person has an innate capability to learn and succeed no matter the severity of their memory loss. Our Vibrant Life program infuses our person-centered Generations Memory Care with stimulating and unique experiences.
No matter what levels of memory loss have occurred, we believe everyone has the ability to engage in and be engaged by the environment around them. Our highly trained team specializes in Alzheimer’s and dementia care using award-winning Teepa Snow techniques to connect and provide unparalleled care for our residents.
