LifeLong provides high-quality health and social services to underserved people of all ages; creates models of care for the elderly and people with disabilities; and advocates for continuous improvements in the health of our communities.
LifeLong Medical Care was formed in 1996 as a merger between two clinics with deep community roots in Berkeley. The Over 60 Health Center began in 1976 as an outgrowth of the Gray Panthers, a senior citizens' advocacy organization. In 1989, Berkeley Primary Care was born in response to citizen protest over the closing of Herrick Hospital and a lack of prenatal care for low-income women. Since the merger, we have grown to encompass five medical clinics, a dental clinic, an Adult Day Heath Center for elders with complex care needs, and a Supportive Housing Program for formerly homeless adults.
LifeLong is known as the primary "safety net" provider of medical services to the uninsured and those with complex health needs in Berkeley, Oakland, Albany and Emeryville. In 2007, LifeLong provided approximately 115,000 primary care visits to over 18,000 people.
