We serve East Bay seniors

The Center for Elders’ Independence helps you live at home, instead of a nursing home

If you are age 55 and older, dealing with multiple health challenges and need assistance in your daily routine, CEI might be just the help you need.

We personalize your care

We help everyone differently, especially now during COVID-19.

You and your care team will work together to create a personalized care plan that may include some or all of CEI’s services. These depend on your medical needs, which may change over time. While our participants are sheltering at home, much of our care is provided via telehealth and homecare. We are delivering meals and checking in with phone calls and zoom activities.

We keep you thriving

Your care team includes 11 professional disciplines and every member of your care team understands your needs.

Each week, this team meets in one room, face-to-face, to review care plans and changes in medical conditions, social engagement and emotional well-being.

We take care of everything

Our mission is to help seniors live independently at home and we understand sometimes that means you need extra help.

Heart, mind & body

We care about you as a complete person and that’s why Center for Elders' Independence gives you everything you need for your medical care.

Medications

Our pharmacist manages and monitors your medicines, and we deliver them to your home.

Appointments

We schedule your appointments when it’s convenient for you and will accompany you to translate questions and answers into your native language.

Transportation

Our 40 vans and friendly drivers will bring you to and from your neighborhood CEI center, clinics, outside medical appointments and field trips.

Billing & paperwork

We free you from paperwork and manage all billing. Before you apply to enroll in CEI, we can also help you apply for Medi-Cal.

You will always be one phone call away from talking with a real person

We give you a single point of contact—your social worker at CEI. 
You can also speak with any person on your care team.

We spend time with you

We have 6 centers in the East Bay. This is where we’ll work with you on your strength and balance in the senior gym, introduce you to new activities, eat nutritious meals, make new friends and celebrate cultural holidays.

We get you out of the house and having fun

Having a social life and friends is a great way to support your overall health. During normal times, CEI offers both structured and unstructured social opportunities through art, drama, music, events, exercise, and field trips like an A’s game or a waterfront picnic. Currently during COVID-19, we are bringing activity kits to home and offering virtual social hours and exercise classes and karaoke to keep people connected with friends they are not seeing at the centers.

CEI helps you avoid the hospital

If you are ever hospitalized, enter rehabilitation or skilled nursing, we coordinate care.

When you are ready to come home, we help you get settled.

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.

You are always in control and can opt-out of CEI at any time.
