Growth Association cuts ribbon for San Gabriel Memory Care in Godfrey

The RiverBend Growth Association recently hosted a ribbon-cutting for the grand opening of San Gabriel Memory Care in Godfrey.

The location at 813 Lars Hoffman Crossing, Godfrey, is the third for the owners and operators, who also run sites in Glen Carbon and Highland.

San Gabriel Memory Care is family-owned and operated. John Dietzen and Carrie Dietzen are a brother-sister team who combined have more than 20 years of experience in senior living.

They said their approach to memory care promotes a sense of independence, well-being and security in an open environment that is safe, but non-restrictive.

The Dietzens say their buildings’ programs and staff are all focused entirely on memory care and well-being.  Their ongoing goal for each of their residents is growth. Through different activities, they encourage their residents to remain engaged mentally, physically, and socially, with all pursuits designed to slow decline and improve overall health.

They can be reached by phone at (618) 466-0600, and their website is
