What our participants tell us...

Senior man wearing hat

“CEI saved me, I gained freedom. They helped me try to do things and don’t make me feel helpless. They helped me understand my medical condition, my limits, and myself… there’s a kind of fellowship here. We all learn to move through the problems and understand how to get better to be better. I can cook for myself now. This is my family.”

Kenneth Thompson


“I was dizzy all the time and I had to hold on to things. I was so sad, and I was really worried I would have to leave my home. But then I found CEI. My doctor and the physical therapy straightened me out! I come two days a week and talk with everybody. We sit together and enjoy lunch. Before, I was depressed, but here we have a lot of fun, we dance and sing. I feel alive, no more nervousness.”

Agatha Lovato

Senior woman smiling

“CEI is miraculous. Without it, I would be depressed and shut-in. The doctors are loving, kind, and compassionate. They actually listen to you and how you’re feeling on different medicine, and explain what each medicine does and how it will work for you. I come for the atmosphere of love and friendship… I had to take care of my mother and grandmother – I wish they had a place like this when they needed help. They would have been happy to come here and be loved by so many.”

Cost is not a barrier

Medicare and Medi-Cal reimburse Center for Elders’ Independence directly for care. If you are enrolled in Medicare and Medi-Cal, you will pay nothing or you will pay your Medi-Cal “share of cost.” When you apply to CEI, we can help you apply for Medicare and Medi-Cal if you don’t already have coverage.
