Lauren Writes for the Santa Ynez Valley News.

Lauren is thrilled to open her fourth home in the valley were she spent many of her younger years. She is looking to learn more about her neighbors and to serve them with her new construction, state of the art, 6-resident home opening in Spring 2021 in Chalk Hill – Solvang. As she serves her residents, she continues to serve families with valuable information in the Santa Ynez Valley News column.

When your loved one is confronted with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it’s difficult to know all the answers. However, when you call Lauren at Family Connect Care, you can get the facts you need as well as the emotional support your family deserves. With multiple packages, Family Connect offers your family help based on your own individual needs.



We are more than proud of developing and bringing the StimuliTM program to our homes and care management! Focusing on ongoing assessments and integrated sensory stimulation, we focus on activities to encourage, heighten socialization, concentration, mood, and self esteem for those experiencing memory and cognitive challenges, increasing responses and interactions.



Plenty of research has demonstrated the connection between mental health and music. Here at Family Connect Care, our staff is trained and certified in music therapy, which allows them to treat our clients through artistic and holistic methods. Not only does music therapy assist our clients in terms of health, but it drastically improves their quality of life.



PIXIE is a new program to diagnose and monitor urinary tract infections. Family Connect Care is the only memory care facility in LA County to implement such a program, putting our clients in a position of knowledge and safety regarding their health. PIXIE is available for all our clients, from those in our memory care homes to those tracking their health from home.

The Best Decision We Made, Even During Covid-19

South Bay Memory Care and the Family Connect Care group have been a blessing to our family. In March of 2020, our family made the very difficult decision to move my father, who had dementia, from a larger facility. From day one, he and our family were welcomed into...

Advocacy to Keep my Father Young

LAUREN and her company Family Connect Care offers something wonderful and unique for those who want to age at home. We started using LAUREN's services about two and half years ago when my father’s wife died. Dad, who is a very young 93 year old, lives by himself, and...
