A planned new building located at the corner of Third and Brooks in downtown San Rafael will house an expanded and modernized Healthy Aging Center on the first and second floors and 66 units of affordable homes for older adults on the upper four floors. The Healthy Aging Campus will be Marin’s first car-free community. The new campus includes:
Integrated Care with many health service areas such as chronic disease management, podiatry, ophthalmology, medication management, vaccination and support services that enhance independent living at home. The clinic will serve all of Marin’s older adults, not only those who live onsite.
Connection & Companionship Vivalon will continue to be a welcoming hub for Marin’s older adults and their families – a place to connect, learn, attend classes and activities, volunteer, and experience meaningful engagement with others.
Healthy Aging Services Sharing a meal, attending classes, engaging in conversations and activities with contemporaries, all increase physical and mental wellness. It has been rewarding to watch as recent research and science begin to prove what we at Vivalon have known all along: that human connection is the central ingredient for overall health and well-being.
Affordable Homes: Eden Housing was carefully selected as our housing partner to build Marin’s first 100% affordable housing community specifically for older residents. One-bedroom and studio apartments (66 total units), will provide homes to older adults aged 62 and up at affordable rents. Eden’s 50-year history of building high quality, service-enhanced affordable homes for lower-income families, older adults and people with disabilities is a perfect fit with Vivalon’s mission.
