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 Resource Page on Lincoln Glen website Helping Hands Sharing with Others

Our website continues to grow with new information for our caring community. As Lincoln Glen seeks ways to keep in touch with our families and friends, we learn about the different needs and problems you face. We have added a new resource page to the left hand side of the navigation links/menu (Resources) to let you know about the many other programs and services for seniors that exist in Santa Clara County and beyond.

This month we added information about a wonderful Pharmacy program, which matches low income people with unused medicine.

We have also learned about the new website named Elder Care California which directs people to local services and residential care programs, as well as information to help visitors make decisions about caring for an elderly family member.   

Our Activities Department constantly finds new resources and events for residents. We have joined Furry Friends Pet Assisted Therapy Service, bringing the healing power of animals to those less fortunate in our community. The Furry Friends mission is to consistently facilitate delivery of the love and affection of our volunteers and their pets. We enhance the lives and touch the hearts of people with special needs. Furry Friends is a California non-profit organization.

Last, but not least, we have also added a "Gift Ideas List for Nursing Home Residents." We know that our residents really appreciate small gifts and the loving intentions of the gift givers. This list will help you give gifts that your loved ones can enjoy even though they may have diet restrictions or have physical limitations.

US Coast Guard Seal on Certificate of AppreciationLincoln Glen "Helping Hands" Group Recognized for Care Packages for Service Men and Women

"Helping Hands" a volunteer service group of residents who live across the campus including Assisted Living, Memory Care and the Nursing Facility, their families and friends have supported our troops stationed around the world for many years. This year the resident volunteers have received a gracious letter of thanks and a beautiful certificate of appreciation from the US Coast Guard Patrol Forces Southwest Asia, Bahrain for Christmas care packages they assembled for the service men and women. To see a copy of the Certificate of Appreciation and the letter, please click this link.

Military officers, writing on behalf of the troops say, "Christmas is always a tough time to be deployed, but your donation definitely helped in lifting our spirits and aided us in sending love home during this holiday season....We LOVE it when we can get packages." Heartfelt thanks and appreciation makes its way around the world to the Lincoln Glen community, all of whom help with this important and thoughtful project.

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,” 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.

To learn about Lincoln Glen Continuing Care Retirement Community requirements and services please contact our office at (408) 265-3222. In addition, you may want to look around our website, see our Independent Living floor plans or our Memory Care floor plans, or visit our Facebook page at Lincoln Glen Facebook Page.
