Water's Edge (Alameda, CA)
Does anyone have any experience with Waters Edge in Alameda? I am hoping to encourage my mother to move closer to us and is slowing needing increased help with everything. thanks
''Waters Edge Association is wonderful because they have 3 types of care for seniors from Assisted living through to Convalescent care. The Waters Edge Assisted Living in Harbor Bay, Alameda is a wonderful caring place for seniors to live that are able to get around on their own. They have their own apartment. The staff make sure the seniors go to meals, assist with medication monitoring, clean their rooms once a week, change linens. The location is wonderful because it is located right next to the stores of Safeway and Longs and adjacent to the lagoon and near a park and Christian church. Many nice walking areas if the seniors are able. At this location you have to be mobile, no wheelchairs. They have onsite physical therapy.I know from speaking with my elder friend that the move was a hard transition but one she knew she had to make. She left her home of 50+ (?) years to move to Waters Edge---her family moved a few pieces of furniture and all her family photos to hang on the wall. Good luck. Sally
The Elders Inn on Webster St. is part of the same association and takes persons who are in wheel chairs as an Assisted Living unit and they also have a separate Alzheimer's unit.
Then on Blanding St near the Park St bridge is Waters Edge Convalescent that cares for persons 24/7 that need total care.
My 90 year old Mother lived at Waters Edge Assisted Living for 2 1/2 yrs and loved everyday. Her dinner table mates had great conversations. As my Mother's health deteriorated she moved to Waters Edge Convalescent where she passed away with Hospice care. The staff in both locations were wonderful. They were very loving to her and took great care of her needs.''
