The Center for Elders’ Independence helps at-risk seniors live at home, instead of in nursing homes
Our not-for-profit organization works to improve the total environment of older adults in the East Bay
We support our participants’ medical, social, emotional and nutritional needs. Our care teams include 11 professional disciplines. Every week, they meet in one room to review our participants’ care plans and changes in medical conditions, social engagement and emotional well-being.
This model of care is the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). Our sister organization, On-Lok in San Francisco, created this care model 45 years ago. Today, 35 PACE centers in California take care of over 6,500 participants.
The Center for Elders’ Independence provides high quality, affordable, integrated health care services to the elderly, which promote autonomy, quality of life and the ability of individuals to live in their communities.

The History of CEI: 35 Years of Helping East Bay Seniors Live at Home
Since the early 80’s, our unwavering goal has been to help vulnerable seniors stay in the community they love.
We’ve gone from one adult day center at Highland Hospital to six centers throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. We’ve served thousands of people in the East Bay during the last 35 years.
But no matter how much the Center for Elders’ Independence grows, we never lose sight of our mission. We will always strive to improve the quality of life for our seniors and help them age with dignity.
