Bayview is more than a place for seniors to call home – it is an environment where opportunities abound for nourishment of the mind, body, and spirit. It is a place where seniors at both Bayview and in our greater community can expand their worlds, while having access to supportive services for needs that might arise. As a non-profit with over 50 years of experience, Bayview is sharing knowledge and expertise in areas of healthy, fulfilling, and productive aging to seniors living in the greater community.
A Community Resource
Developed in the fall of 2013, The Hub is a community space for neighborhood seniors to experience the benefits of social engagement, support, and advocacy that Bayview provides for its own residents and family members. Seniors have opportunities for educational programs, social interactions, and an overall sense of community to reduce isolation and provide opportunities for healthy aging.
Intergenerational Children’s Center
Bayview offers professional day care for working families. Close to 44 children, ages 3 months to five years interact with residents, fostering positive attitudes toward disability and age. The program provides a family-like atmosphere and builds positive relationships among young children and seniors through shared activities.
The Role of Philanthropy
A unique component of Bayview is the economic diversity of its residents and strategic plan to remain accessible to the broader senior community. Residents who exhaust their financial resources, through no fault of their own, can continue to live with their friends at Bayview, thanks to philanthropy.
Bayview’s Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center cares for seniors who are in need of short-term rehabilitation or long-term care, in a supportive and nurturing environment. Bayview provides over a half of a million dollars of underfunded care every year in the Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and close to 100 people from outside Bayview receive care in the Center.
The need for care and services to seniors is expected to grow quickly in the next few years. Bayview is fostering a proactive approach in keeping seniors healthy on their aging journey. Our accomplishments in caring for seniors are in part due to the community’s generosity. Thank you.
