We were able to visit Bayside Park. It's in a very busy street and there's no garden. People were sitting right in front of the building in wheelchairs. That was not very pretty. The concept of going in and paying $7000 rent for my wife for one bedroom was not appealing either. If you need any additional services then the prices goes up.
I’m sorry to hear that your first impression of Bayside Park was not more positive. Busy streets aren’t ideal, but our urban setting does mean proximity to great museums, destinations, parks, restaurants and the liveliness of the East Bay. Our residents see this as a perk and our community bus is always on the move. In addition to dining, transportation and fun excursions, the residence you mention also comes with gardens on the rooftop and second floors, exercise room, weekly housekeeping, classes, clubs, etc. There’s even a massage therapist on site. Many of our residents do indeed like to sit out front and observe the goings-on of the world from the comfort of their front porch. It’s a great place to gather and chat and we don’t discourage it. I wish you the best in finding the community that’s just right. Best regards, Mike Hughes, Managing Director, Bayside Park

Bayside Park is very modern and bustling with activities. The staff was nice but we were not able to eat there. The apartments were not well planned and they have no closet space.

I like the layout and the condition of Bayside Village. It was set up very well for Alzheimer's patients. They also have male staff to take care of male patients, which is very, very smart and ideal for my dad. The quality of the food is good. However, I think they need more staff.

A good friend's dad stayed here for months & as we visited got to see the happenings on the inside. They strive to be unique by keeping seniors active with activities, opportunities to keep learning and growing by staying active in the community. They really take the time to notice what appeals to the senior community and tries to implement it! AND they have some holistic practices keeping it trendy too!

I'd give this place 10 stars if I could. It's fabulous. They offer assisted living, independent living, and dementia care.
It's in a new building in an arty part of Emeryville that's really a work of art in itself. Walking into it is like walking into a modern museum. There's a stunning arch, skylights, beautiful roof gardens.
The whole independent living section has true apartments that are gorgeous and come complete with housekeeping services. The assisted living units are also nice, graciously appointed apartments. And the dementia care units are nicely appointed and spacious, with a full restaurant-style/catering kitchen.
There's even a full gym, with physical therapy and massage on site"”and always a lot of art on display. There are a number of artists who live there.
It's not just that it has the kind of ambiance that appeals to families, though. It also walks the walk in terms of care. The family that owns it and the staff are totally wonderful. Very engaged. They know the residents well, and they offer very skilled care. The last time I was there, the chef who works there was walking around asking each person for their favorite childhood recipes, and he used that to plan meals.
Considering all that, it's reasonably priced. This place is so awesome, I want to live there.

When you walk in the door, you think it's a place you'd like to live yourself.
The facility is gorgeous in every way, with everything under the sun under its roof--exercise facilities, exercise programs, a wading pool, any number of workshops, beautiful quiet rooms.
They couldn't have given my mother-in-law better care, including providing lots of activities meant to "encourage" her memory. On the staff are very caring people, who couldn't treat the residents there more respectfully. We would visit everyday"”and the staff would always welcome us warmly, even bringing us food at mealtimes.
The private rooms are like elegant hotel rooms"”beautiful.
The cost seemed like a bargain, at about $4,000 per month.
