Aegis of Corte Madera
"A price can't be put on what you do, it's that good and makes all the difference".

Aegis Living welcomed Dr. John H. Fullerton of Hampton Health, Ltd.™ and his private geriatric medical practice to the assisted living community in 2002.
One of the first and only Assisted Living communities in the nation with a private geriatric medical practice as part of its on-site services available to residents, Dr. John H. Fullerton served as the Certified Medical Director to both the Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s units-(“Life’s Neighborhood”) for twelve years in addition to the duties of his private practice.
“Thank you for an exceptional beginning to Dad's care with your practice. The knowledge, concern and time that you put into this first meeting was remarkable. Dad has not had this complete a health check in his life. I am confident that he has the best possible chance of getting back to an energetic 83 year old with your care.”
Gordon R, son of an Aegis resident & Corte Madera patient
“I want to thank you for the amazing experience you provided to my father as well as my family. Your stewardship, compassion and support was our glue that held the family together during the end of my father's journey. We were very fortunate that our path's crossed at Aegis and I want you to know how special it is, the work you do on a daily basis. It is demanding, intensive and greatly appreciated. Never lose sight of the intangible support you provide your patients and families.”
