Grace Care Management was founded in 2001 as a company with a unique mission to serve the elderly and those in need of professional advocacy in San Diego County. As Grace Care has grown to include not only care management but also non-medical caregiving services, we place special value on training and mentoring our extraordinary staff.
We continue broadening the scope of our professional services by working with a collaborative team of social service, rehabilitation and mental health professionals to enrich our innovative model of care. Our advisers include physicians, advanced practice nurses and allied health professionals dedicated to the highest values in health care.
We believe that everyone facing the challenges of chronic illness and aging, or an extended period of recovery and coping, deserves support and special care. As our health system continues to evolve and adapt to meet the challenges ahead, our elders and all those with increasing needs for care will require more professional support during their journey. It’s important that we meet them where they are and create communities of care to protect, surround, and nourish our most vulnerable.
Grace Care continues to lead the way in collaborative home and community based care models, which honor the whole person.
