Assisted Living in San Francisco, California

San Francisco is located on the West Coast of the United States on a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. The city has more than 50 hills within its city limits as well as several scenic islands. A number of San Francisco’s parks and beaches are part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, making it one of the most visited areas in the country’s national park system. San Francisco has a warm-summer Mediterranean climate with temperate year-round conditions. The city is home to an estimated 873,965 inhabitants, and seniors make up 15.8% of that total.

Assisted living facilities provide seniors with assistance in performing the activities of daily living, such as personal care, housework and meal preparation. This type of care is beneficial to older adults who don’t require the 24-hour medical supervision provided by a nursing home but cannot live independently. Seniors in San Francisco pay $6,319 per month for assisted living, which is approximately 17% more than what the average Californian pays.

This guide offers an introduction to assisted living in San Francisco. It also covers the average costs of monthly care, the advantages and disadvantages of living in the city and free resources available to seniors.
