Valley View Gardens Memory Care


Valley View Gardens is a premier residential community offering Independent Living and Memory Care in Garden Grove, California. Our beautiful community is designed to promote creativity and independence within a safe and loving environment. We would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!


With its convenient location near Anaheim, 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 board games, movies, cards, dominoes, and other social activities in our large and comfy family room. The many activity spaces, services, and amenities at Valley View Gardens allow our residents to kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves with friends and family.


Our Garden Grove Memory Care program offers residents coping with Alzheimer’s and dementia an opportunity to reside, dine, and enjoy activities in a supportive atmosphere unlike any other. Staffed by experienced and passionate caregivers, Valley View Gardens’s Memory Care community promotes dignity and independence in a loving and caring environment.


Our Memory Care residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that licensed nursing staff are available 24 hours a day and a 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. We are here to help with medication reminders, special diet plans, shower assistance, dressing assistance, incontinence, and more as needed. 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.

Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée.

Went for a tour. The facility is very clean and the residents looked clean as well. The resident rooms were personalized, which is very good for Alzheimer’s patients. The outside was very homey and secure. I also must compliment Tierre, the Administrator, for having very kind and knowledgeable staff members. It takes special people to work in these types of settings. I would not think twice about placing a family member at Valley View Gardens.

Testimonial Image

“Valley View Gardens was the top choice for my Mother after I visited 10 other residences. My Mother and our family are very happy with her beautiful private room, the highly qualified and caring staff, the beautiful grounds and facility, and the fun and stimulating daily activities geared to each resident’s abilities and interests. We are at peace knowing that her daily well being is well taken care of with regular facility visits on site with a physician, dentist, podiatrist, lab. technicians, and hair stylist. She is monitored 24/7 by qualified medical staff and administrators. Everyone at all levels is gracious and welcoming to family and visitors. My Mother enjoys viewing the aviary, the resident pet dogs, and the beautiful gardens and gazebo. She feels safe, never bored as she enjoys the exercise classes, singing, movies, games, parties and live entertainment. Valley View Gardens is a top quality residence and an excellent value.”
