Despite pleas, Burlingame care center closing
San Francisco Chronicle

Anna Tupou, 76, has lived at the Burlingame Long-Term Care center for the past four years, a resident of one of only five county-run facilities in the state like it. On Tuesday, she was put on notice that she would soon have to find somewhere else to live. Despite almost three hours of passionate and often emotional testimony from residents like Tupou and employees and supporters of the nearly 50-year-old facility, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted not to renew a five-year lease to run the center.
