The Zimmerman Family has been caring for seniors in Alameda since 1971. With almost 50 years of experience in the senior care industry, they have successfully built and operated some of the most innovative and well regarded skilled nursing and assisted living communities in the East Bay, including Waters Edge Nursing Home, Waters Edge Lodge, and Elders Inn.
Each member of the Zimmerman Family brings their own experience and expertise to AEC Living. Christian Zimmerman started his caring career as an ambulance driver before opening Waters Edge Nursing Home. Darnelle Zimmerman, is a Registered Nurse, public health nurse, and a DON who has worked in geriatrics since 1979. Lauren Zimmerman Cook has been working with seniors since 1996 and holds, among her many degrees and certifications, licenses for nursing home administration and RCFE administration, as well as a masters in geriatrics. Stephen Zimmerman, is also a licensed RCFE administrator with a masters in geriatrics.
Their extensive experience in meeting the unique and changing needs of older adults is the reason AEC Living keeps growing and evolving; each new component of AEC Living has come into existence because the Zimmermans have been able to use their combined experience and education to see some way that the current approach to the needs of local seniors can be improved – some way the services provided can help make a senior’s life better.
