Ada’s Lodges opened their first two facilities in 2009. The premier eldercare facilities of Mission Lodge and Monterey Lodge opened at their current locations, 5255 and 5253 Monterey Rd, in northern Paso Robles, California. The lodges are owned and operated by Kathy Tucker and her husband Gary Davies Tucker, a local contractor. These first lodges were inspired by Kathy’s search for the perfect spot for her aging grandmother, Ada. Mission Lodge specializes in dementia care, and Monterey Lodge provides care and independence for seniors with medical and cognitive disabilities, related to strokes, Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses. Each of these lodges have 10 rooms and their own kitchen and family areas, making them feel homelike and encouraging personalized care. Mission and Monterey Lodge are located in an active vineyard, providing seniors with the beautiful surroundings of vineyard and mountain views, typical of Paso Robles.
After 4 years, the Tuckers realized that the need for elegant eldercare was growing. They embarked on a search for a great location for another facility. They found a perfect location at 725 Pine Street, In Paso Robles, across from the transportation center, and just blocks from the fabulous downtown of Paso Robles. Under construction in 2015, Annette Lodge was named in memory of the pioneer school Gary and his family attended in rural San Luis Obispo County. The Annette school was a place where families came together to celebrate social occasions and support each other in the pioneer spirit, and Annette Lodge will support the elder population of the Paso Robles area in the same spirit.
All three lodges provide assistance with daily living activities. Staff is available to help with dressing, bathing, medication management, and activities. Residents are encouraged to participate in activities of their choice, and assistance with activities both individual and group is offered as needed.
All of Ada’s Lodges were designed by owners Kathy Tucker and her husband to meet the service needs of an assisted living facility. They have large residential care rooms to allow for all levels of mobility aides. Staff is specially trained to assist in the needs of the elderly, including incontinence care, bathing and dressing, and personalized activities.
The Lodges' co-owner and director, Kathy Tucker, is a nurse with more than 30 years experience in geriatric care. She and her staff provide assistance with all of the activities of daily living, while focusing on independence and resident choices.
The Lodges at Ada’s Vineyard are the premier residential care facilities on the Central Coast.
Mission Lodge and Monterey Lodge share a landscaped courtyard entry with easy access for all levels of mobility. This courtyard entry is directly accessed by the large parking area with multiple handicapped and guest parking spots. The courtyard is secured with coded exit gates to prevent wandering. This assures our residential care guests are welcomed home with a safe, senior care-friendly garden entry.
Our focus is on maximizing independence and health, while providing personalized care in a guest-centered environment. We embrace the seasons of the vineyard, encouraging eldercare guests to experience Paso Robles life in a safe, comforting environment. The Lodges at Ada’s Vineyard support senior care in the wine country, a place where all seniors desiring eldercare would like to be.
The new Annette Lodge will have a large, landscaped courtyard, with eight of the rooms facing the courtyard. The other six rooms will have lanai spaces, where residents can relax, and enjoy gardens and relaxing. All rooms will have easy access, and handicapped parking and access will be through private parking spaces in the alley. The front lobby will resemble an elegant hotel with street parking and downtown ambiance.
