A Culture of Caring

Elder Care Alliance is an association of residential communities with one mission: to help older adults live a life of purpose and belonging rooted in holistic wellness.  

Located in the Bay Area and Ventura County, Elder Care Alliance communities are a trusted name in senior living and memory care in California for more than 20 years, and our Mercy community has been serving older adults for more than 100 years.
