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 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.
