Aegis Stories

Heroes Work Here
at Aegis Living

See what happens when one family’s heartfelt message honoring our teams inspires a movement shared by our leadership who spread the gratitude across the west coast.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

When the John Muir Health, Walnut Creek Medical Center was short on hand sanitizer, our Pleasant Hill and Moraga communities were eager to help our local hospital partner. Having prepared early with supplies for our residents, these two communities were able to share 79 gallons of hand sanitizer!

Our Baseball Dads

Our dads and father figures are the ones who help shape us. They nurture us to be strong and resilient. Wise. And plan. They show up at the games. They cheer. They coach. This story is about Bill, a baseball player and Aegis Living resident whom we cherish. And how his son, Rick cherishes him even more. We shot this before the pandemic, but we are working hard at getting all our families back together socializing in safety to continue sharing life, laughs and love.

Cheerful Children’s Art

As part of the KIRO 7 Cares Initiative, evening anchor Monique Ming Laven coordinated children’s art to be delivered to our seniors. With stay-home orders in place, creative kids crafted, drew, and colored beautiful art and inspirational messages that brought our seniors a lot of smiles and joy.

Newcastle Cares

The City of Newcastle, the Coal Creek Family YMCA, and Aegis Gardens partnered to help seniors in need during this challenging time. These organizations united to connect vulnerable Newcastle residents with resources and volunteers who want to help, called Newcastle Cares. For their first care essentials drive, they received over 500 pounds of donations, including toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizers, and soap. Donations were made at the YMCA and city hall and then distributed at the Stan Head Cultural Center to over 25 local seniors.

Apart, But Never Alone

Our Laguna Niguel community partner with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and You Are Never Alone (YANA) to provide essential care bags with needed supplies like paper towels, fresh fruit, snacks, and Kleenex. The Sheriff’s department makes wellness checks twice per week to neighborhood seniors who live alone. The bags are a wonderful gift, and our Laguna Niguel community will continue their support of local seniors with hot meals to bring them comfort during this uncertain time.
