Senior co-housing, like one such community in Oakland, is on the upswing as more aging adults look for alternatives to institutional living.
Berkeley and a group of community organizations are working together to ensure that older residents have options to age 'well' in the city.
There are steps Berkeley can take – like increasing the pedestrian signal time at intersections –that will make it a more amenable place for older residents.
The new project would offer a “continuing care” facility that features apartments, a memory care unit, and nursing facilities for people at the end of their lives.
A 150-unit affordable senior housing complex in West Berkeley has announced a celebration later this month to show off extensive renovations to improve its seismic safety and add environmentally friendly features, according to a statement released Wednesday.
