Opening in 2023, the Alameda Wellness Campus will create one of the nation’s first integrated care centers for homeless seniors and other unhoused adults with complex health conditions.
Medical Respite Center
A 50-bed Medical Respite Center will offer short-term recuperative care and on-site health services for Alameda County residents 18 years and older who are experiencing homelessness and have a complex medical condition or need hospice-level care.
Medical Respite is a life-saving intervention providing short-term recuperative care stays for homeless adults who are too medically frail to recover on the streets or shelter but who do not qualify for a new or continued hospital stay. The Wellness Campus respite program is the first purpose-built respite program in Alameda County.
The Respite Center will support unhoused patients to resolve an acute medical condition, stabilize chronic medical and behavioral health conditions, and provide hospice level care. A separate women’s area will promote a safe and welcoming environment, particularly important given the pronounced rates of violence and trauma afflicting unhoused women.
Our 50-bed, Medical Respite will provide 400 unhoused patients annually with:
- Recuperative care stays & healthy meals
- Health services & caring support
- Hospice level care if desired
- Linkages to permanent housing
- Warm hand-off to primary care providers
Health Care Center
LifeLong Medical Care’s Health Center will provide health assessments and integrated medical and behavioral health services. Services will be trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and client-centered and seek to create healing connections. The health center will be focused on the needs of medical respite clients and older adults residing at the senior housing.
Permanent Supportive Housing
The service-enriched senior housing community will support 100 unhoused Alameda County residents 55 years and older to thrive. LifeLong Medical Care will offer case management, peer support, health services, provide or organize wellness workshops, assistance with daily living, and other health services, including palliative and hospice care.
The Homelessness Prevention Center will provide case management, rental assistance, and housing placements for an estimated 200 unhoused or vulnerably housed residents of the City of Alameda annually.
The Alameda Wellness Campus will serve hundreds of unhoused seniors and other vulnerable residents each year. The Stupski Foundation is proud to have supported the Campus’s plans for palliative care and hospice services so that medical respite patients and senior housing residents can receive dignified end-of-life care and remain stably housed in a supportive community.
Dan TuttleDirector of Health, Stupski Foundation
The Alameda Point Collaborative Wellness project has the unique opportunity to provide an optimal type of atmosphere for our community’s most vulnerable citizens. I am also particularly encouraged and grateful for how the program intends to address the palliative care and end-of-life needs as appropriate, extending beyond the care model of most supportive housing programs.
