Senior Living in Oakland, California

Mercy Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

We are excited to share that Mercy Retirement and Care Center is revitalizing its historic Oakland campus to sustain its original mission from the Sisters of Mercy; to care for elders in their final years, including members of religious orders.

Since arriving in Oakland in 1907, following the San Francisco Earthquake, Mercy Retirement and Care Center has served over 10,000 older adults.  The Mercy Revitalization Project is designed to ensure the best possible quality of life for our current residents and those we will serve into the future.

Sustainability is about ensuring the older adults living with us can pursue the things they love in a comfortable, happy, and accessible home.

From the first step you and your loved ones take onto the Mercy campus, you’ll feel a renewed and vibrant sense of home. Around every corner you will see the changes taking place, including:

  • New entrance with raised parking, covered drop-off and updated reception area
  • All-new theater room and library
  • Redesigned beauty salon and wellness spaces
  • Enhanced outdoor accessibility and walking trails
  • New outdoor space for memory care residents
  • Renovated assisted living apartments with new in-room showers
  • Improved assisted living tower common spaces
  • Brand-new bistro
  • More resident gathering spaces
  • Expanded chapel
  • Relocated country store and art studio
