Additional Information

INFO ON THE MONARCH PLACE (from http://www.monarchplace.cc/)

Monarch Place is located just ten miles from San Francisco. It is across the street from a complete shopping center, and only a few blocks from the unique shopping areas of Piedmont and College Avenues. Doctor offices, medical facilities, churches and synagogues are within walking distance. UC Berkeley, the Oakland Museum and Piedmont Theatre are close by, with many forms of transportation available, including BART and excellent taxi and bus service.

There is a special philosophy at Monarch Place: The staff realizes that the residents are still growing and learning. They know that each resident possesses a life that holds promise for the future. Because of this attitude, they provide only the highest quality of service while promoting independence and self-esteem. The staff at Monarch Place works for that unique balance between a family atmosphere and the true professionalism their jobs demand.

Overlooking the San Francisco Bay in the fashionable Piedmont / Rockridge area of Oakland, Monarch Place Retirement Community offers independent living in an elegant setting.

The garden areas, with ponds, fountains and ferns, feature strategically placed benches for the enjoyment of residents and their guests.

Rich wooden antique furnishings and clusters of art grace the hallways of Monarch Place. The elegance is repeated in the formal skylit dining room, in the mirrored private dining room, and in the lounges and lobbies. Large fireplaces add a cozy touch when the fog rolls through the Golden Gate.
