Explore the design of the 3.6 acre healing & serene campus environment.
A stone’s throw from Crown State Memorial Beach in Alameda, the 3.6-acre campus is set in a healing and serene environment. The surrounding Crab Cove beach is a beautiful marine reserve in the San Francisco Bay.
The Campus will feature two buildings:
- A 50-bed Medical Respite Center with a health clinic and resource center
- 100 permanent supportive housing units for unhoused seniors
The attractively designed buildings and garden courtyards will foster health recovery and community
The First Floor of the Medical Respite Center:
- Lifelong’s Health Care Center
- Commercial Kitchen
- Dining Area
- Resource Center
The Second Floor
Residential area for medical respite patients, including a separate women’s sleeping area, and private rooms for patients with infectious diseases or those receiving hospice care.
Medical Respite Center
The 50-bed Medical Respite Center will house one of the nation’s first purpose-built recuperative care programs. The medical respite program will serve an estimated 400 unhoused Alameda County residents annually.
Patients will be supported to resolve acute medical conditions, stabilize chronic medical and behavioral health conditions, or receive hospice care. Departing patients will be supported to secure stable housing placements and consistent primary care.
The design includes a separate women’s sleeping area to create a protected environment for unhoused women. There are 6 private rooms for patients with infectious conditions or who need hospice care.
