The Kensington Philosophy

We promise to care for your family as we do our own.


Our promise is the foundation of The Kensington philosophy. We regard our residents as if they are our own family, so hugs, laughs, companionship and patient support are routine parts of every day. We help our residents feel loved and secure by delivering heartfelt excellence in assisted living and Alzheimer’s or dementia care in a warm, beautiful environment.


We make everyone feel
     important the instant they
     step through our doors.


The Kensington came about because we, as a group of committed senior living professionals, sought to build a community we'd been dreaming about for much of our careers. We wanted our residents to wake up each day happy and thriving. We wanted families to feel welcome to visit any time, confident they entrusted the care of their loved ones to capable professionals with big hearts. We wanted to be part of a community where we contribute something good.

With great determination, we chose Sierra Madre, CA as the place to realize our dream. Decades of collective experience in senior living, construction, operations and management taught us the wisdom of departing from stereotypical nursing home models.


Very deliberately, we built a residence that looks and feels like home. We integrated adaptations for seniors seamlessly throughout to encourage independence and confidence.


We hired consummate professionals to ensure the quality of care and in every dimension of The Kensington lifestyle. Further, we fostered a culture of service that makes everyone feel important the instant they step through our doors.


We invite you to become part of The Kensington family. We promise . . . you'll know we care.

"I am writing to tell you how how grateful I am that my father's first weeks been so wonderful. I braced myself for his move to The Kensington and was terrified that my dad, who has been the knockout winner of the Most Allergic To Change award, would be derailed by it. It went so well I could not believe it!"  more>>
