Dear Families and Friends of Sycamore Glen,

The safety and well-being of our residents and employees is our top priority. We are doing all we can to safeguard our community against the Covid-19 virus and have taken significant steps to modify our operations in an effort to keep everyone safe. In these difficult times, our staff and residents are showing incredible bravery and resourcefulness, and I am both proud of them and encouraged by them.

We ask that you call the front desk before coming to Sycamore Glen to discuss our current guidelines and protocols. We encourage you to stay in touch with your loved ones living here using modern technology, such as FaceTime and Skype. We are happy to assist residents with setting these up. Phone calls to your loved ones are also greatly appreciated by them. If you are available to bring your loved one any needed supplies, please drop them at the front desk and we will gladly deliver them.

The support you have given us has been greatly appreciated. Your words of encouragement about how Sycamore Glen has been handling the fluid Covid-19 pandemic serve as a reminder that we are all in this together.

Thrifty S.

My Mother has resided at Sycamore Glen for one year. The facility is beautiful & welcoming inside and out (and well maintained). Every staff member I have had contact with is kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. My Mom has stated she feels the same way. The food is great - lots of choices. Ask the Staff about their activities program - it's quite robust. My Mom's apartment is a studio and the perfect size for her. She was able to move her favorite pieces of furniture and arrange them nicely. I love her shower area. There are several hand bars (I think three), which gives both my Mom & I reassurance that she can safely enter & exit her shower. If you are considering a facility for Independent Seniors, go visit. Talk to the staff. In my opinion, Sycamore Glen is Fabulous.

I cannot say enough great things about Sycamore Glen. The facility offers a lot of light and space for interaction, the staff is happy and helpful and there are many services and activities to keep things dynamic and interesting. My Mother has lived there a few years now and continues to share that Sycamore Glen is a very celebratory place to live. As her daughter, I am grateful for the staff and environment! Thank you Sycamore Glen!

My older brother is living at Sycamore Glen and enjoys it very much. His studio apartment is in excellent condition, the staff are very cordial and attentive to his needs, and he enjoys the relationship with other seniors.


Moved Mother from a Chico retirement center. Comparing Sycamore Glen to the other location is like night and day. Sycamore Glen offers great food selections, extremely professional staff, and activities that stimulates participation within the community. The facilities are kept clean and support to resolve any problems are promptly addressed. (We have had to install an answering machine to leave a message for our Mother to call us when she had time to do so.)

Satisfied Daughter

I have been at Sycamore Glen less than a month but I love the surroundings and the warm atmosphere that feels like home. The people are so very friendly and am looking forward to making many new friends., The activities are never ending and I appreciate all the staff and the help they have been to me. I love several of the card games and the Wii bowling is a real challenge. I have bowled for many years but these people are a exceptional and I love it. My apartment is very roomy and my view from my patio is so beautiful looking at a waterfall and fish pond. I'm so very happy with my new home and friends at Sycamore Glen.
