Daily Journal: The Trousdale

Senior care facility opens to public

The Trousdale in Burlingame begins leasing ahead of grand opening next year

The Trousdale, at 1600 Trousdale Drive in Burlingame, will be open to the public in early 2018 with 124 rooms adjacent to Mills-Peninsula Medical Center.

Construction of a Burlingame senior care facility designed to offer specialized care for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory loss is on schedule and rooms are already being rented, officials said.

Living space in the Trousdale is available on the market, as the 124-room project adjacent to Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame continues to be developed by the Peninsula Health Care District.

District CEO Cheryl Fama said enthusiasm is building as the care center continues to move toward its expected official opening sometime in the early part of 2018.

“We are really excited about it,” said Fama, of the $55 million project which broke ground at 1600 Trousdale Drive, on the corner of Magnolia Avenue, more than two years ago.

The Trousdale will offer 101 units for those needing assisted living care, and 23 residences will be specially designed for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.

To assure residents’ quality of life, programming such as art, music and yoga classes along with other amenities will be offered with tech-supported communication services to ease connections with family and friends.  Read the full Daily Journal's article!
