Senior Housing

This mixed-use development, encompassing an entire city block, is located in the heart of downtown Brisbane and serves as a city gateway.  The project design acknowledges the development’s role as transition between the downtown commercial district and the adjacent residential neighborhood.  Financed by the former Brisbane Redevelopment Agency, Visitacion Gardens Apartments combines a public senior center with 14 apartments for low- and moderate-income seniors.  Visitacion Garden Apartments is managed by Bridge Housing.  To get more information, visit their Bridge Housing's website.

Did you know that one of the common challenges is finding proper care options for people living with disabilities.  Check out this guide that provides comprehensive information on topics like available care options, financial support, and free resources that are available from each state.  There is also this guide to help the elderly and their families fully understand the cost of long term care and the programs that can provide financial support.  Seniors should also be aware of common scams that target the elderly.  See this useful guide by seniorliving.org

In other words, it’s really about neighbors helping neighbors. Membership dues are $20 per year to help cover their operating costs, including liability insurance. This fee may be waived in cases of hardship.  Find out more at http://brisbanevillage.org/faq.
