Welcome to Lincoln Glen -- A Caring Community for
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

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

Lincoln Glen Announces new Residence Program
We are proud to announce that Lincoln Glen has been certified as a
California Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). This special long-term care certificate
from the State of California requires providers such as Lincoln Glen to offer a range of senior
care including housing and residential services as well as a Skilled Nursing License that support
seniors for a lifetime.
Residents choose to live in CCRCs for a variety of reasons. They want to be near family, to
avoid being a burden on their children, and to feel certain that their needs will be met in a
caring community of friendly residents and reliable, kindly staff members and volunteers. They
may want to participate in a wide variety of social activities. They need the physical, mental and
spiritual security that a CCRC can provide. They also want assurance that they will receive increased
levels of care as their needs change. Part independent living, part assisted living and part skilled
nursing home, CCRCs offer the range of care that seniors need as they age. The CCRC allows residents
to move into a new level of care, but continue to live in a comfortable, familiar setting for as long as
Lincoln Glen Continuing Care Retirement Community is unique.
Many CCRCs require a “buy-in”, that
is a contract designed to pay for a resident’s care for the duration of their life. This contract
can be quite expensive. We do not require a “buy-in”
which makes our facilities much more accessible for
seniors today. Lincoln is a non-profit that has operated successfully for more than 45 years. We meet
the financial stability requirements for CCRCs which ensures that we will be able to support our residents
into the future.

New Memory Program - Music and Memory
Lincoln Glen is proud to announce Music and
Memory, a new program for residents of the Nursing facility and those who live in Sunshine Alley, our newest facility for
residents who have memory impairments. Lincoln Glen activities staff have been trained
and certified to "set up personalized music playlists, delivered on
iPods, for residents in our care. These
musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can
bring participants back to life, enabling them to feel like
themselves again, to converse, socialize and stay present."
and Memory's work is "rooted in extensive neuroscience research. The
results can be nothing short of miraculous."
Here's what NPR Science Friday has to say:
"Why do musical memories linger long after other memories have faded? That question is at the heart
of a new documentary, Alive Inside, which looks at the effects of music on people living with
Alzheimer’s and other age-related dementias. Film subjects Oliver Sacks and Dan Cohen explain
why music acts as a backdoor to memory and share tips for enjoying music with the elders in your
Tapping Into Musical Memory.

Music and Memory on You Tube.
