CAMARILLO, Calif., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- If you or a loved one is beginning to consider options for assisted care, you may be asking, " What is a nursing home?" The answer is not always as simple as it seems.

However, health conscious seniors seeking the active lifestyle of the best facilities for assisted living in Camarillo while still receiving the benefit of nursing home-level healthcare can hardly do better than Sally's Residential Care Home.
At Sally's Residential Care Home, each resident has an individualized plan of care. For residents requiring medical care, in home visits are always arranged.
