Our award-winning chef has been here for over 10 years, and residents feel he's an extension of their own families. He hosts a monthly roundtable to gather feedback and recipes. All of his meals are delicious, but residents especially love devouring his “Garlicky Chicken.”

Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Escondido area and The Springs of Escondido makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Complimentary transportation provides you easy access to local activities, events and attractions, including a monthly “Lunch Bunch” outing to resident-selected restaurants, and field trips to San Diego landmarks, Balboa Park Museums, picnics at the lake, and boat tours of San Diego Harbor.

Life is Never Boring

The Springs of Escondido's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

Plant veggies or flowers in the community garden. Take an Art for All Ages class. Sing the hits at community karaoke. Get a chair massage. Residents love visits from the Travelin' Game Show and The History Man. Two children of residents run monthly arts and crafts classes and bingo.

Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at The Springs of Escondido. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Occasionally, a beloved therapy pony visits campus, and residents consider the ducks in our pond the community's "adopted pets."

Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi

The Springs of Escondido is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use community desktop computers to stay up to date, or you can connect your personal devices to the WiFi.

Residents have access to use the community Wii or the reader machine to assist in reading small print. Staff host "Tech Tuesdays," where residents learn about technology and get assistance with devices.

Travel and Adventure is Always Available

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

From your new home community you can also travel to destinations throughout the world through the Travel Adventure Program, through educational activities and lunch menus specific to the chosen destination. Reserve your seat for the next travel destination with us!

Lend a Helping Hand

Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Residents support the Humane Society, Toys For Tots, and our knitting group makes caps for newborns. Orange Glen high school students volunteer to sing us carols and decorate the community Christmas trees.

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
