Tucked into the rolling hills of South Orange County is The Covington, a picture-perfect community for senior living in Aliso Viejo.

Set on 12 leafy acres with the majestic Saddleback Mountains as a glorious backdrop, it offers the best of independent, memory, and assisted living and recovery care in Orange County.

The Covington, the area’s premier Life Plan community, is both off the beaten path and at the forefront of life.

Our community is the only one in South Orange County that offers a lifestyle that can be reimagined through Creative Living…a philosophy that creates and drives the culture of our community for residents and staff.

You’ll also have the assurance that health care security is paired with these new pathways to personal fulfillment.

Our nonprofit promise

As a nonprofit organization, The Covington is motivated by service to you, not profits for us. This isn’t true of all other senior living communities in South Orange County. As you compare your options, be sure to find out if a community operates on a for-profit or nonprofit basis, because this distinction reveals a community’s ultimate priority.

As a resident, you benefit from our nonprofit status.

At The Covington, we continually reinvest back into the community, by improving services to residents and their families, hiring outstanding staff and developing new ways to fulfill our mission. We do not pay dividends to shareholders (because there aren’t any).

It’s part of our social accountability commitment, and it’s at the heart of everything we do. It’s the essence of our core values, and the foundation of the mission to which we devoted ourselves back in 1923.


Our financial strength

Trust your investment in our Life Plan community.

The Covington was built upon the solid foundation of our sponsor, Episcopal Communities & Services (ECS).

ECS is among the top Life Plan/CCRC providers in America when ranked by financial strength. We have earned an A- rating from Fitch Ratings, a global leader in credit ratings and research. We are proud of this exceptionally high rating that few communities in the U.S. have achieved.

ECS also operates additional highly esteemed Southern California Life Plan retirement communities: MonteCedro in Altadena, The Canterbury in Rancho Palos Verdes, and Twelve Oaks in Glendale.
