Foothill Acres

When the South Wing of Building #1 opened in October 1954, Foothill Acres was described as a "pioneer in the field of modern health care". More than half a century later, the Hillsborough nursing home and rehabilitation center is again poised to be a leader in elder care.

The North and South Wings of Building #1 and the 'v' shaped Building #2 in the early 60s.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on June 28, 2009 to announce the beginning of construction on a new 180,000 square ft. facility. This is the first major addition to the complex since Building #3 was completed in 1964. Building #2 opened in 1958.

The one-story buildings from the 50s and 60s are set to be replaced in phases with modern two-story structures. The phased-in approach will allow residents to remain at the facility throughout construction.

The following are postcards from the early days of Foothill Acres. Check out the amenities. I don't think they got HBO!
