Here at Avista Magnolia in Corona, California and surrounding areas (El Cerrito, Home Gardens, Riverside, and Coronita) we treat each other with kindness and respect. Our warm, experienced staff are on hand all day, every day to provide care, comfort, and convenience. We offer more than a dozen floor plans in our senior living community, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments with lots of natural light and plenty of storage.
Activities and Outings for Everyone
Senior living doesn’t mean sedentary. We want to help you stay active and involved. One way we do that is through our incredible life enrichment program. We offer choir, drama, dancing, sing-a-longs, live band, crafts, painting, and more. Residents love hanging out in our music room with a piano, drum set, and bass amp. Our choir is all about developing our talent together as a group. And most importantly, we have lots of fun! Participating helps our residents build confidence. They sometimes start out hesitant, but pretty soon they’re singing to others in the halls and line dancing on our dance floor.
In our gym, we provide something for everyone, from “chair chi” to circuit training to supervised workouts. After a workout, residents can order a detox or energy smoothie from our juice bar. If you’re looking for something more low-key, we have a book club, pajama movie nights, a volunteer program, and even a dog park. If outings are more your thing, we take local day excursions as well as overnight trips to places like Las Vegas and Laughlin.
A large part of our success here at Avista Magnolia is due to our fabulous Activities Director Jake Gutierrez. He considers working with seniors to be his calling in life, and he’s spent the last two decades helping senior living centers have fun. During the pandemic, he found creative ways to keep the fun going. He serenaded residents while they listened from the balcony. He played ice cream truck music while delivering treats to rooms. And he used technology to send videos of residents to their families. Jake loves the opportunity to get to know the residents, build on their strengths, and change lives. His advice on making the most of life: “Don’t be afraid! Just go for it.”
We believe that when we all come together, our community is stronger. Every person in our senior living community has something to offer. It’s okay if you’re nervous about joining in. Come in and visit us here at Avista Magnolia. See how much fun we have. We will help you find something that you love to do!

What Happens When You Move In
We want everyone to have a friend here at Avista. We start by helping each resident feel welcome. Every person who moves in is assigned an Avista Ambassador — current residents who welcome new residents and invite them to join us in activities. We also hold a new resident luncheon where residents get to enjoy a fancy lunch, meet our team, and learn all about the variety of activities we offer.
