Review for Center for Elders' Independence, Inc., Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experiece with CEI is from my experience as a donar and as the daughter of one of the Berkeley location's participants. I can't say enough about the wonderful, caring, experienced and professional staff at the Center. My feeling is always that they go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that each and every participant gets the kind of individualized care and attention they need. The organization takes a holistic approach - dealing with the participant's needs on many different levels. These are just some of the characteristics that I think make the program unique and so successful in their mission. Because of the care the Center provides to my mother and so many others, I feel it is also my duty to give to help to ensure that the organization is able to continue to deliver a high level of service for years to come.

I have personally experienced this organization's results throught the quality of care that I know my mother, the participant, receives. It only takes a few minutes spent speaking with my mother before she tells me something about the latest event, activity or caring step that one of the staff took. She is always singing their praises. Additionally, my personal experience is in witnessing the improved state of my mother's physical emotional health as a result of her association with CEI.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that the organization always has the funding they need to continue to provide the quality of care they do currently.

Role:  Donor & I make sure my mother is able to attend all of the organizations after hours events and I also donate on a regular basis.
