Fullerton Gardens Memory Care


Welcome to Fullerton Gardens, an all-inclusive Fullerton Memory Care community specifically designed for loved ones who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Located in beautiful Fullerton, California, our community empowers residents with the physical and emotional support they need from experienced care professionals. We would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!


With its convenient location, a host of dedicated services, and a wide array of amenities, each resident’s wants and needs are carefully tended to in an atmosphere dedicated to the closeness of family and friends. Residents enjoy taking walks along the path of our serene and secure garden, which features shaded seating areas, a covered patio, and a fountain. The putting green is also popular for those who have always enjoyed a little golf with friends.  Inside, our community features a spacious theater room, a separate family room,c and a beauty salon & barbershop.


At Fullerton Gardens, we have a tremendously gifted and caring staff who are here to assist all of our residents with whatever they want or need. Our chefs serve up a delicious, varied, and healthy menu in our elegant dining room and separate private dining room for special occasions. And we can cater to any specific dietary requirements, such as a diabetic diet or a pureed diet.

Fullerton Gardens is near churches, hospitals, senior centers, shopping malls, theaters, museums, and universities. We drive groups to local markets, restaurants, and attractions, too. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!


Our Memory Care residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that licensed nursing staff is available 24 hours a day and an emergency call response and security system is in place for residents with dementia. Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Nurses and resident assistants are always available to assist with medication administration, incontinence care, and the activities of daily life. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.


While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.

Fullerton Gardens has 36 shared-room apartment homes. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.
