CEI selected a 15,660 square feet existing commercial office building in San Leandro for this unique senior adult day activity center and clinic. The orientation of the building takes advantage of natural daylight. The dining, lounge and activity spaces all have large windows oriented to views of the courtyard. Nature elements are incorporated into the interior design, including a live edge table and tree wallpaper on columns, for improved health and well-being of both participants and staff. The Center is inviting and comfortable, with a large lounge and multiple activity rooms, encouraging participant’s engagement socially and through activities. Programming for the Center included a, OSHPD 3 clinic for rehabilitation services and support for four providers with six exam rooms and is accessible through an internal passageway. The clinic space has its own entrance and provides eye exams, dental services, and behavioral health, plus administration and support spaces.
