The ideal location for Abundant Senior Living

Rincon del Rio is located in Nevada County, California–an idyllic place with the perfect mix of culture, activity, and rural simplicity. Our community sits on 225 acres bordering the Bear River.
(Check out the view from our clubhouse main room!)

Eighty-five percent of the property is reserved as open space, with miles of walking and equestrian trails. The river provides a welcoming environment for a variety of water fowl, as does the three-acre pond.

Situated at an elevation of 1,200 feet, our community is below the snow of the Sierras and above the fog of the Sacramento Valley. Our climate is comfortable without being boring. Skiing at Tahoe is nearby, but so is California Wine Country. And day trips into the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area are always an option.

Below is a short video that will give you an idea what Rincon del Rio is all about. If you find that it speaks to you, we hope you’ll choose to speak to us, using the handy form just below. We look forward to the conversation!

Our goal is to eliminate social isolation and give all residents the option of living comfortably in their own home, no matter how challenging the circumstances. Our commitment to Rincon del Rio residents is

Sure, man-made amenities are great. Pretty much everyone enjoys a swimming pool, sports courts, and a well-equipped gym.

Rincon del Rio has all the things other communities offer and more: Things like an outdoor fitness track, disc golf, and a driving range with putting green so residents can find amusement for themselves and visitors.

That part’s easy—it just takes some space and money.

But creating natural beauty and a sense of place isn’t so simple. You can’t really build them; that’s up to nature.

To have the kind of beauty and serenity we’re talking about, you have to find a very special place, and then fiercely protect that environment, so residents can easily achieve private, exclusive contentment every single day.

Our Housing

Home is not just where you live, but where they understand you.

People 55-and-over are no different from younger people in wanting choice of where and how they live their lives.

There is rich diversity among our senior population and a one-size-fits-all approach is no longer valid.

Our Services

Rincon del Rio’s defining characteristic is the combination of service-enriched housing (physical and social needs) with a continuum-of-care paradigm.

The campus is rural in nature without even a hint of an institutional environment, but rather the quiet knowledge that exceptional care meeting discerning standards is available on-site if it is ever needed.
