About Sequoia Living
Live for Today, Tomorrow, and Beyond
Throughout our six decades as a nonprofit serving Bay Area seniors, we’ve learned the importance of connection and collaboration when it comes to providing resources for healthy aging. From our continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) to safe affordable housing, engaging senior centers, and a purpose-filled volunteer program, we provide friendly environments where people can explore and discover what it means to grow stronger, wiser, and more joyful.
A History of Caring in the Bay Area
Deeply rooted in the concept of life care, Sequoia Living was the first to develop a more comprehensive and inclusive retirement community setting in the region. Since our founding in the 1950’s, we’ve grown stronger through three name changes: first Northern California Presbyterian Homes, Inc., then Northern California Presbyterian Homes and Services (NCPHS), and finally Sequoia Living. Our focus has always remained the same: to provide joyful communities and services to enrich the lives of those we serve.
