Senior Living Center in San Jose’s Willow Glen Gets Eviction Notice

Dozens of seniors in the South Bay say they are being sent out in the cold. The landlord at their residence has issued an eviction notice for everyone and many say they have nowhere else to go.

The letter arrived Wednesday, saying the 80 residents at a senior living center in San Jose's Willow Glen community had 60 days to pack up. They say the landlord is not renewing the facility's long-term lease.

Family members were scrambling Thursday to come up with a Plan B for their elderly parents.

"I'm very irritated because my family lives here and he has nowhere to go now," said Renee Ralph.

The Atria Chateau Gardens tells NBC Bay Area the landlord, Westlake Realty out of San Mateo, told them everyone must go.

In a statement, Atria said the landlord is unwilling to continue to allow the building to be run as a senior living community and instead intends to redevelop or re-purpose the property for another use.

The center says they now have until February to help find a new home for the 80 seniors.

Residents and their families are upset.

"There just aren't that many available in the San Jose area," said Lynn Law, a family member for a resident being evicted. "The other choice was going to Walnut Creek, which would be really far."

The Westlake Realty Group did not return calls seeking  comment.

"I'm not happy about it. It's Christmas time and you're putting my dad out on the street," Ralph said. "I'm not happy."
