Customer:

Those were for seniors. I am looking for an assisted living place for young adults and college students with learning disabilities, because I happen to be one. But it has to be just assisted living. No classes, no required meetings and no scheduled appointments. And the place has to be somewhere in the Bay Area of California, preferably near Oakland or San Fransisco. I also want it to be a place where I won't require a resident roommate. The facility just needs to have living assistants for helping in things like cooking, cleaning, shopping, laundry, and any other living skills I need help with. And the place I live in will require enough room for all of my belongings. Are there any places like that?

Where can I find a place like the one I described in the Bay Area, preferably on the western side of the Caldecot tunnel?

Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.

Adam, I'm researching that for you now and will get the information to you shortly.

So, you are looking at is somewhere around Berkley area?

Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.
There is an Independent Living Organization in CA with several locations, including Berkley and the surrounding area.

California Foundation for Independent Living Centers

Here is one example of a CFILC Independent Living Center in Berkley:
CIL Berlkley

If that's what you're looking for, let me know and I will locate others.

Not independent living, assisted living.

Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.
Adam, I've certainly learned a lot searching for this information. While there is a ton of information for seniors, there seems to be to just an extreme, a lack of information for young adults. I thought that this is something that would be readily available, especially in CA. I hope that this doesn't reflect the reality of living in California with disabilities. That would be very disappointing.

I took a look at the website of all the Assisted Living facilities that were accredited by the BBB in the Bay Area, and out of the 79 that are listed, 76 were for Seniors. These are the ones that appear to be geared toward your needs.

It's the best I've been able to do. I hope that it's helpful.

It is still just seniors. It is not what I need. I am 24 years old, and still in college. I need an assisted living place for someone in my age group who has learning disabilities. Where would I find one of those? Even in another part of California, outside the Bay Area, or in another state.

Expert:  replied 1 year ago.
Adam,

The places that I provided you in my most recent message are for Adults with disabilities, not seniors.

You mention that you are in college, but you do not want assisted living that is associated with any college. If you were willing to combine the two, it would open some very good options for you.

Most of what I am finding is transitional residential centers that have a goal of independent living and come with some sort of program. For example, the Independence Center is for Adults 18-30 and includes the services you require, but it's integrated with a program that is supposed to ultimately, allow you to live independently.

I don't have all the answers for you on this topic. It's fairly complex. I've looked through literally hundreds of facililities and everything else I have seen is integrated with some type of independent living program.

I will keep looking for you, though.
