Fredericka Manor to Debut Expanded Memory Care Accommodations

The joy of hearing a favorite song. The comfort of smelling cookies baking in the oven. The sense of connection that comes from being with others.

At Summer House, a memory care neighborhood at Fredericka Manor in the heart of Chula Vista, these sensory experiences are woven into the daily lives of residents living with Alzheimer’s and other cognitive challenges.

Summer House opened in 2015 with 22 cottage-style homes, each with modern comforts, classic styling and its own trellis-covered front porch. In January 2024, Fredericka Manor will debut its Summer House expansion, which adds an additional 22 cottages on the west side of the Fredericka campus. The new Summer House offers the same services and amenities as the original.
