Homecare for Your Loved One
For many families in Rancho Santa Margarita these days, times are hard but we endure as best we can for our families. And sometimes that may mean caring for an elderly parent who can no longer stay at home all by themselves without some help. But now you’re not limited to either choosing to have her live in a nursing home that’s too expensive or too far away for you to visit regularly. Instead, your elderly parent can still stay in the house they love, in comfort and in safety. That’s possible because now you have new options in home care.

Now you have the option of receiving the help of dedicated and highly trained caregivers who can visit the home of your elderly parent. These caregivers aren’t impersonal home aides who briskly do their jobs. On the contrary, they’re professionals who have the special skills and knowledge that can help aging loved ones in their daily tasks but also have pleasant and friendly dispositions.
Their assistance can take so many forms. One important task is that they can be there to remind your elderly loved ones in Rancho Santa Margarita to take their necessary medications at the appointed times. They can help your parents cook delicious and nutritious meals, help do the laundry, and assist in the various chores. And these caregivers aren’t just helpers. They’re compassionate individuals who form tight bonds of friendship so that your parents can feel comfortable receiving the assistance they need. It’s more than just about providing assistance. It’s about providing friendly companionship. Their visits to your parents’ house can relieve them from some of the more arduous chores, while your concerns about their comfort and their safety are reassured as well.

Rancho Santa Margarita is a city in Orange County, California, United States. One of Orange County’s youngest cities, Rancho Santa Margarita is a master planned community set upon rolling hills. The population was 47,853 at the 2010 census, up from 47,214 at the 2000 census.
Although it is named for Rancho Santa Margarita y Las Flores, which was in San Diego County, the city limits fall within the borders of Rancho Mission Viejo. At 22 characters long, it is the longest city name in California.
Where schools, shopping centers, and residential neighborhoods now stand, Native Americans once lived. On July 23, 1769, they were visited by a Spanish expedition under Captain Gaspar de Portola, who camped near the site of Tijeras Creek Golf Course in Rancho Santa Margarita.
On July 24, the expedition headed inland to avoid the many streams and swamps in the area. They found a large plateau area and camped that night on its western edge by a canyon, which the Franciscans named San Francisco Solano. This was on the eastern side of Trabuco Creek about three miles downstream from the present site of Trabuco Oaks.
While camped here on July 24–25, one of the soldiers lost his trabuco, or musket, a most valuable possession to any soldier. To mark this loss, the stream was named Trabuco. The name has been associated with the mesa, the canyon, and the entire area ever since. The Spaniards founded Mission San Juan Capistrano in 1776 and ruled the region until 1821 when California became part of Mexico.
The Mexican governors carved the area around the mission into three large ranchos: Rancho Trabuco, Rancho Mission Viejo, and Rancho Santa Margarita. James L. Flood and his partner Jerome O’Neill purchased the combined ranchos in 1882. The huge estate was run as a working ranch into the 1920s. In 1940, the ranch was divided, with the Flood family taking the lower portion, in today’s San Diego County, with the upper portion retained by the O’Neill family. In 1942, the Navy annexed the Flood family’s portion of the ranch for use as Camp Joseph H. Pendleton.
In 1948, the O’Neill family donated 278 acres of canyon bottom land to the County of Orange for park purposes. The O’Neill family donated an additional 120 acres of parkland in 1963, the same year they founded the Mission Viejo Company and drew up plans for a master-planned community of the same name.
By the 1960s, a rural cluster of homes had been present in Trabuco Canyon for decades. The area’s first tract developed homes didn’t arrive until late in the decade in what would become Coto de Caza, which started out as a hunting and fishing resort. The area remained fairly remote until 1986 when the first homes in the new master planned community of Rancho Santa Margarita were sold. The economic boom of the 1980s also fueled home construction in nearby Dove Canyon, Robinson Ranch, Wagon Wheel and a handful of smaller developments. The area became better linked to the rest of the county in 1992 when extensions of Oso, Antonio and Alicia Parkways were completed.
In 1989, the people of the community of Rancho Santa Margarita established a Community Civic Association (CCA) for the purpose of providing a political voice for the community. The CCA, later known as the Rancho Margarita Civic Association (and still later as the Civic Council), briefly explored self-governance, but it was in 1995 that the RSM Cityhood Committee, a separate community organization, began the official drive for cityhood. Rancho Santa Margarita was planned to be an “Urban Village”, offering the best of two worlds: all of the elements and advantages of a small city plus the quality of life of a small village.
