Great minds laugh a lot.

A welcoming place where true friendships grow.


People notice the warmth and joy that is ever-present at Vista; the friendliness, the strong community spirit. We hear it from visitors all the time. There’s a natural ease here: people look out for one another. Some say it feels like family. We know that there is a special bond between residents and staff. We are committed to being there for each other. We are taking precautions during these times but we are still social and enjoy intellectual and physical activities. We love a healthy lifestyle, a calendar full of virtual social events, and living life to the fullest.

Donate to or volunteer at Vista Del Monte

For residents, by residents

Our communities are full of passionate people. To celebrate that, we started Shine!, a life enrichment program. It’s all about getting in touch with the unique skills and interests of the individuals who make up our communities, and giving everyone the space to be a teacher—and a student. Through this program, we invite everyone to tell us what’s important and interesting to them, and then we make those experiences happen.


Help in The Corner Store, our resident sundry shop, or serve on one of our popular committees. Whatever your specialty or passion is, your assistance is greatly appreciated. Having residents as volunteers is the best way to get people engaged and ensure that Vista del Monte stays true to the people who live here.

If you are not a resident of Vista del Monte, but you are interested in learning more about the variety of volunteer opportunities, please contact Fitness and Aquatic Center Director at 805.879.5557 or via email at
