About Elder Care Alliance
Elder Care Alliance has been serving seniors and their families in California for nearly 20 years, but our history stretches back even further.
We trace our history to the 1907 opening of Mercy Retirement & Care Center in Oakland, founded by the Sisters of Mercy. In 1997, Mercy and Salem Lutheran Home came together, and with the support of Dignity Health, Elder Care Alliance was formed. From day one, our mission and vision have been centered on the care of seniors – putting their well-being and dignity at the forefront of all we do.
Whether a senior is looking for vibrant independent living or a higher level of support and care, our communities offer a range of services.
Through a focus on our core values of dignity, caring and excellence, Elder Care Alliance strives to deliver high-quality care supported by an integrated software platform with electronic health records. In all of our communities, assisted living hospitalization and readmission rates are consistently half of other providers, as formerly reported to the California Assisted Living Association. Find out more about our innovative approach to care.
Two of Elder Care Alliance’s core values are dignity and caring. For more than 30 years, the Mercy Brown Bag Program has filled sacks with nutritious groceries for Bay Area seniors in need. Learn more about this innovative program where seniors are helping seniors.
Elder Care Alliance is a highly collaborative organization with a commitment to the development and continuing education of all of its team members. When we look at our team members, we see experts in their roles. We see potential leaders. We see people who can imagine solutions to tomorrow’s challenges. We see the roots of great ideas for how to make senior care better. Learn more about how Elder Care Alliance cultivates a culture of learning.
