Brought to You by Santa Margarita Ford.

There is a growing need in the RCFE and ARF community to do more for residents — especially when it comes to making certain that they remain an active part of the community. Whether it’s the need to make a doctor’s appointment, to get to a community center, or simply going to see a movie — making the decision on how to get them there can be a big problem.

To that effect, we are very pleased to welcome a new preferred vendor to our organization, Santa Margarita Ford. They have been part of the fabric of the Southern California community for 19 years and consistently receive some of the highest marks for customer satisfaction in the automotive retail industry.

Santa Margarita Ford is home to Jon Jacobs, one of the moving forces in the industry who helped create the program for RCFE and ARF operators to lease or purchase specially-customized vehicles. His partner, Tony Merten, is a recent addition to the Santa Margarita Ford Mobility Team. Tony has been in the commercial vehicle business for over 20 years and brings with him a wealth of technical knowledge that can truly solve some of life’s unique challenges.

The Santa Margarita Ford vans and SUV’s help to serve the elderly with a wide range of personal mobility. Whether they are wheelchair-bound, need help walking, or simply desire safe and easy transportation, these vehicles provide the opportunity to make a variety of appointments and social events that they would otherwise not be able to attend.

  • Need a wheelchair lift? Check.
  • Need adjustable seats for easy in and easy out? Got that.
  • Need a vehicle that works for the multiple purposes that is efficient and cost-effective? Got that too!
  • How about a vehicle that I can get a tax break on?
    Santa Margarita Ford can show you several different ways of making your purchase or lease make great financial sense and increase the value of your operation.
