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.

Lincoln Glen Announces new Residence Program

Seniors thrive in a caring community at Lincoln Glen 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 they need.

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.

In addition, you may want to look around our website, see our Independent Living floor plans or our at Memory Care floor plans, or visit our Facebook page at Lincoln Glen Facebook Page.

The Lincoln Glen Activities Department offers a full calendar of events and activities for community residents every month. Recognized for their creativity and variety, the Activities Department took on a special project in October: Nursing Facility's Haunted House.

The California Association of Health Facilities recognized the Activities Department at the 2015 Annual Convention and Expo in November. Lincoln Glen Nursing Facility’s “Haunted House” was selected by CAHF’s Board of Directors as one of three recipients of the 2015 Excellence in Programming Awards!

The Excellence in Programming Awards were instituted to recognize individual CAHF member facilities and homes for superior achievement in key areas of long-term care, and to share those success stories with other providers.

Lincoln Glen staff members were honored on November 17, 2015 at the CAHF 2015 Annual Convention. The Activities Department received a plaque and the project was described in the CAHF News and press release.

New Memory Program - Music and Memory

Music and Memory Image and LinkLincoln 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."

Music 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 life. Tapping Into Musical Memory.

In addition, here is a link testifying to the benefit of the Music and Memory on You Tube.
