The AgeSong WoodPark community is set in a neighborhood of charming single family homes in Oakland’s diverse, evolving Fruitvale district. Our expansive one-story residence offers a warmly decorated, sunlit environment, set within numerous spacious residential wings accommodating 86 residents. The many common rooms and dining areas throughout the building offer inviting gathering places for residents and their guests.
The residential care programs at AgeSong offer a different approach to eldercare by integrating our inner community with our outer surroundings, and by offering residents encouragement, support, and opportunities for growth. AgeSong’s high needs assisted living, and dementia care programs encourage both learning and community involvement.
Behind the AgeSong vision of a more respectful eldercare and the reintegration of elders into our communities lies the hope that the experiences and wisdom of elders will inform and guide those who are younger in years. AgeSong WoodPark’s community has been established with this approach.
Programs and approaches combine research and educational principles with techniques that residents and family members have taught us about dementia care – a truly individualized experience. AgeSong offers a variety of educational, cultural, and social programs.
AgeSong uses natural materials, light, color, and sound to support health and healing. AgeSong’s comfortable ambience is enlivened by the spirited attitudes of our staff, residents, students, volunteers, interns, and family members.
AgeSong is continually adapting to residents’ newfound needs. AgeSong’s comprehensive care coordination supports even the most challenging activities of daily living, allowing elders to feel secure and at home.
An indiividuals’ own attitude about aging affect how we see our elders and ourselves. AgeSong promotes the idea and practice of embracing aging. AgeSong encourages people to be who they are, at any age.
AgeSong’s resident population is ethnically and culturally diverse, as is the staff. Many of our carepartners are multilingual. AgeSong does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, or disability.
