AEC Living

AEC Living is a group of two independently operated facilities  – each developed by the Zimmerman Family to serve the needs of the Elderly in the East Bay.

The mission of AEC Living is to allow Residents to “age in place” while helping them to achieve the greatest possible level of self-sufficiency.

The two facilities:  Waters Edge Lodge and Elders Inn complement each other creating a continuum of care from assisted living to skilled nursing. The addition of Alameda Elder Services and the rehabilitation agency allows Alameda Elder Communities to assist all Elders in the local community to achieve their highest level of independence.

The continuum of care provided by these three facilities allows Residents to move between the three levels of care as needed. Our primary goal is to provide a loving, nurturing and supportive environment that promotes optimum physical, mental and spiritual well-being. We strive to rehabilitate and/or maintain Residents at the highest level of functioning at which they are capable of obtaining. The Residents are to be treated with dignity and respect at all times and in all circumstances. The quality of care is equal for all Residents regardless of the method of payment for their care.

We are dedicated to providing the best Eldercare to our Residents. Our care is provided without discrimination as to age, disability, race, color, national origin, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Chef Care – Alameda

Hello All

just a quick note about me

i was born in San Francisco but I’ve lived in Alameda off and on for over 25 years.

I’m a self educated food service professional whos dedicated over 40 wonderful years  to food service and restaurants!

my work is absolutely the love of my life.

i started loving my job at the age of 5 bussing tables, cutting veggies, sweeping the floor and filling salt and pepper shakers for 25 cent tips at the family soul food joint in the Height Asbury.

i worked fast food at age 16 at an At Arby’s sandwich shop in San Leandro 

I got into fine dining at age 22 after i moved from the Bay Area to Sacramento to work at John Qs in the penthouse of the Sacramento Riverside Holiday Inn.

i continued on to work in a variety of restaurants delis, care homes, grocery stores and delis learning as much as i could from every chef i met

As a very young single parent, i had no time for work, school , parenting and a culinary institute.

So  I spent 15 years in Sacramento …..working, Learning, growing and falling deeper and deeper in love with my work

i moved back to Alameda in 1999. 

i worked at Why Cook for a while then moved on to The Harbor Bay Club Courtside café.

my experiences gave me the skills to help open the new Club House Sports Bar and Grill at the Harbor Bay Club On Bay Farm, in 2000. I created my own menu of healthy and fun foods, hired a great staff, prepared everything from scratch and enjoyed the time i spend there as Head Chef and kitchen Manager 

After leaving HBC My next adventure was to become The Restaurant Dr.

I helped open or reinvent over 25 restaurants, cafes, sports bars, catering companies and delis from the Bay Area to Roseville, Ca 

After helping upgrade the Sacramento Railroad Museums  café. i headed for the wine country To help Hall Winery reinvent La Residence, their newly acquired bed and breakfast in Napa, 

After the B&B i stayed in Napa and took a job with a New Whole Foods Market and i worked in Prepared Foods supervising every venue of the department in front and back of the house 

i helped WFM open five stores. Oakland, Napa, Roseville, Santa Cruz and Capitola.

My next job was to help a smaller natural foods grocer in Santa Cruz called Staff of  Life Market who was suffering from the arrival of Bigger markets 

i  helped this small 40 year old grocer move into a  bigger space that was once a dealership,

i helped design the deli, kitchen, bakery and catering departments and managed all four departments until the staff was well trained and they were operating successfully on their own. 

i created  traditional, vegan, vegetarian and raw menus for the  catering department, the deli, hot bar , cold case and pre pack. 

I had to leave Santa Cruz and return to Alameda in 2011 for left and right total knee replacements and was unwilling forced to retire.


i am a semi retired small business owner enjoying the work i love and helping people have great events!

i am a very personal, down to earth person who cares more about the customers happiness than Anything Else!!

I prepare Every meal with the same care as if I were cooking in your home or mine

i work hard to provide the best quality and creativity for ALL budgets small and great, 

i shop all natural and organic when ever possible and i DO NOT cut corners on anything!

i prepare over 10 different ethnic cuisines and am happy to work with new flavors if you want a menu I’ve never tried before

the love of my job is that i get to be challenged and play with new foods and flavors all the time AND  i learn something new everyday !

thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about your new personal chef caterer. 

l am looking forward to preparing the perfect foods for feed your soul!
