Home Is Where the Heart Lives

Following a year filled with change and uncertainty, we have come to appreciate the idea of home now more than ever before. At California West, we view a home as a place where we make time for ourselves, re-energize, reflect and connect with the ones that matter most.

Thank you to those who are celebrating this holiday season in one of our California West homes – we hope they have provided you with comfort, safety, and memories. 

Wishing you good health, prosperity, and joy,

The California West Family
