Our Family

In 1963, the Shea family opened the first Skilled Nursing Facility in Santa Barbara. The Californian is now operated by the fourth generation of the family. We are dedicated to the highest level of care and compassion. 


The staff at The Californian is dedicated to making each resident's experience extraordinary, providing exceptional attention to ensure comfortable living through patience, experience, and compassion. This philosophy maintains our reputation as the highest quality skilled nursing provider since 1963.


We have licensed Registered Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants on site around the clock.
