Welcome to Lincoln Glen -- A Caring Community for Seniors

Sunflowers offer a cheerful welcome to Lincoln Glen Manor

NESTLED AMONG SIX ACRES in San Jose's Willow Glen neighborhood, Lincoln Glen Manor is dedicated to enhancing the lives of seniors by providing four levels of care.

Conceived in 1965 by the Lincoln Glen Church Congregation, Lincoln Glen Manor was built in 1969. At that time, the community felt a responsibility to care for their seniors. Thus, the concept of Lincoln Glen Manor was instituted as a caring community for seniors adjacent to Lincoln Glen Church. Today, Lincoln Glen Manor provides four levels of care for seniors.

Perhaps you are a senior citizen desiring to scale down your lifestyle from a large family home to a cozy caring community? Or maybe you are at the stage of life where you require a little help with daily activities? Possibly you are in the need of daily nursing care? Perhaps your loved one is struggling with Alzheimer's Disease or dementia? Whatever your stage of life, Lincoln Glen Manor is the optimum choice for enhancing the lives of seniors by providing independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care.

New Partnership with Dementia Friends

Dementia Friends USA Logo From the Dementia Friends USA website, we learn that it "is a global movement that is changing the way people think, act, and talk about dementia. Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends initiative is underway in the USA. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia."

"A Dementia Friend is someone who, through viewing a series of online videos, learns about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts. Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend – we all have a part to play in creating dementia friendly communities!"
