Aegis Living Shadowridge (Oceanside, CA)

When you make your home at Aegis Living Shadowridge, you’re joining a friendly community nestled just eight miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Our residents find smaller communities within three wings of the building: one with 53 apartments for Assisted Living and two with 18 apartments each for more close-knit, designated Memory Care. What does your day hold? Connecting with friends in the bistro. Going for a walk in the beautiful courtyard. Getting your hair done or a clean shave at the salon. Working on the Sunday crossword by the fire in the library. Nurturing seedlings in the raised garden beds. Hosting family or friends for dinner in the elegant private dining room.

West Coast breezes and California sun feel even warmer when surrounded by the exceptionally kind people here. We welcome those who need everything from light assistance to more robust care—and our trained team members can accommodate a higher level than most, thanks to impressive tenures, deep expertise, and a fundamental respect for the residents they serve. Whether you need a hand or just someone to share stories with, you have deeply caring people at your side.

Last year, when my Mom’s worsening mobility and substantial memory issues made it unsafe for her to continue living independently, we made the tough decision to move her out of her home of many decades. In touring some dozen facilities, we decided on Aegis in Oceanside, not far from my home. Some places we toured were swanky resorts with all the bells and whistles, but she didn’t need all that. She needed a clean and inviting environment, but she also needed great care. Aegis promised to provide that. In the end we went with Aegis because it was the right size for her, with the right amenities and a nice choice of apartments. The menu looked good, there was a small theater for watching movies, a hair salon, and a common area that serves as a nice community gathering place with comfy chairs, game tables, music, bookshelves, and a fireplace. The facility is inviting, with a pleasant entrance and a beautiful courtyard. As for the caregiving staff, it perhaps goes without saying that elderly people struggling with cognitive decline and failing bodies get out-of-sorts sometimes, and yet not once did I witness Aegis staff being anything less than kind. When Mom first moved to Aegis, there was a period of settling in when she missed her old home and everything was strange and new. She could be stubborn (alright, famously stubborn!), and it took some weeks to become accustomed to her surroundings, but her caregivers got to know her and worked with her. She was invited and encouraged to join in activities, but never forced. It helped that throughout her time at Aegis she was cared for by the same staff, whom she came to trust. They respected her dignity. More recently, when it came time for hospice, Aegis arranged for the agency to come to my Mom’s bedside where she was able to remain under the care of the caregivers who had become a great comfort to her rather than being carted off in her final weeks to a nursing facility. In every possible way, Aegis staff went above and beyond to make her last days comfortable. After Mom’s passing last week, I was at peace with my decision to trust Aegis with her care. I spent a lot of time there this past year visiting her. In the end, the Aegis staff came to feel like family. The kind you get to choose.

The entire care team at Aegis Shadowridge was amazing! From the start, they were accommodating and friendly, welcoming my mother into all the activities they could in the brief amount of time she was there. My mother needed a facility that was going to care for her needs as they arose. When she moved in, nobody thought—her family, nor the care team—that she would require the extended amount of assistance she did as her decline happened so suddenly. They were there at every move tending to her needs to ensure the comfort my mother needed and the support we, as her family, needed. The caregivers, nurses, med techs, activity coordinators, chefs, and facility managers were all kind and compassionate, thinking and acting on the people first principle. I could not be more thankful for their care, concern, and diligence in allowing my mother’s last few days with us to be so integrated, empathetic, and meaningful. Thank you again for all that you do!

My Mom has been here at Aegis since March of 2022. We have had nothing but a positive experience. Aegis stepped in when I could no longer give Mom the care she needed. This gave me peace of mind that she was surrounded by the wonderful staff who made her feel like family and who I could trust with her and who also continue to make her experience here so positive. The Life Enrichment team plans so many fun experiences for the residents. There is always a smile on the residents when they are involved doing the activities. Mom is now in her final steps of life and knowing she’s getting the love and care they provide here at Aegis makes my heart so happy. I have nothing but positive things to say about this place. I highly recommend for your family when needed.
