Welcome to a New Standard of Living for Seniors!


The Courtyard at Little Chico Creek is designed for senior adults who require assistance to maintain their highest level of functional capability.

Assisted Living is a housing and healthcare alternative that combines independence with personal care in a warm and dignified community setting. An exceptional restaurant, a wide variety of individual and group enrichment opportunities, and amenities that will help your loved one feel at home, are just a few of the reasons to choose The Courtyard.

Assisted Living involves a special combination of housing, personalized supportive services, and health care. These services are designed to respond to the individual needs of those who require help with the activities of daily living.

At The Courtyard we offer several levels of care. Initially you may start with mom or dad just needing help with medication support and a sense of community. As needs change and more help is needed with moving around and daily activities, we are able to adjust the level of care provided to support your family in these transitions. We offer care and support all the way through full end of life hospice.

The Courtyard’s caring staff is available 24 hours per day and joins with family and friends to provide a complete support network, providing assistance when necessary and protecting the personal dignity of each resident at all times.

Because the physical needs of our residents are met, they are free to relax in a safe and nurturing environment that offers activities fostering their independence, knowing that help is only a step away when needed.


Beauty, Comfort and Safety for Residents

The Courtyard at Little Chico Creek is designed to foster the comfort, safety and enjoyment of our residents.

We offer 41 state-of-the-art studio and one-bedroom apartments, each with a private bath and kitchenette. All the apartments are fully wired for computer, phone and cable TV service.

Located directly across from scenic Little Chico Creek, our beautifully landscaped grounds provide an idyllic setting for leisurely strolls. Inside the central courtyard, residents and visitors enjoy the shade of market umbrellas while savoring the beauty of flowers, trees, a fountain and lush gardens.

Developed and managed by The Hignell Companies, a family business that has served Chico’s housing needs for over sixty years, The Courtyard embodies the Hignell family tradition of Creating Caring Communities that Transform Lives.

Our Mission

“Our mom was at the Courtyard for four years through the end of her life and we can truly say that it was the best place for her.  The staff was so loving and supportive to her needs, the environment was stimulating and encouraging exactly what she needed.  She loved the food and wide variety of offerings at each meal. She was nourished on so many levels by being a resident there and our family was able to enjoy meals and time with her there that was very meaningful to us all. We will be forever grateful to the Courtyard “Angels” as she would call them, who helped her end her life with dignity, love and compassion.”
