About Hillcrest

A Remarkable Retirement Community

About Hillcrest

Our mission, vision and values make Hillcrest a hallmark for senior living in Southern California. We provide residents with an enriched life experience while offering them more control over their future health care needs and services.

Our History

Hillcrest’s roots were planted in 1947, when La Verne residents partnered with the Church of the Brethren to create a retirement home for the community.  With six-and-a-half acres and a little good fortune, Hillcrest provided La Verne’s seniors with 10 cottages, a chapel and manor.


Over the years, Hillcrest has evolved with the times, growing to accommodate healthcare needs and a rising population.  The property now spans more than 50 acres and has undergone numerous upgrades, replacements and additions.  The community now includes The Village Center, a progressive Aquatic and Fitness Center, the Dean Kieffaber interfaith Chapel with its beautiful hand-carved oak doors, new residential homes in Pinecrest, Birch Court, Maple Court and The Lofts.  Hillcrest maintains first-rate healthcare facilities to offer services that fit the needs of each resident.

Living at Hillcrest

As a continuing care retirement community, Hillcrest offers home styles, services, and healthcare that revolve around supporting you in your independence.
