Raya’s Paradise, a private residential care community for seniors, opened a new facility on July 25 at 846 N. Sierra Bonita Ave., in the Melrose area.
The new property is located at the site of a former single-family home that has been recreated with state-of-the art amenities to care for 11 people. The exterior was designed to fit in with the character of the surrounding community, in keeping with Raya’s Paradise’s approach to caring for people in home-like settings. It includes a communal living room, dining space, seven private rooms, two shared rooms with two beds, and a backyard where residents can gather with family and friends. The facility offers a caregiver to patient ratio of 3-to-1, and a staff that includes a nurse, chef, driver and activities coordinator. Raya’s Paradise serves people ages 65 and older and offers assisted living, memory care and hospice care. The new facility is one of six either currently existing or planned on Sierra Bonita Avenue and Gardner Street.
