About AgeSong University
AgeSong University provides outstanding care to residents in the newest AgeSong community. We strive to create an environment that is culturally and economically diverse. Since 1884 the site has continually evolved to meet the changing needs of the aging population in San Francisco, and that process continues today.
The original benefactor of the 350 University property, James Lick, was among the wealthiest men in California and upon his death in 1876, he was persuaded to leave a substantial portion of his wealth to a variety of social and scientific causes, including $700,000 to establish the Lick Observatory and $100,000 to establish a home in San Francisco for 'the aged and needy ladies who have no resources of their own'.
Our elegant front parlor has a fireplace, comfortable seating, and a grand piano and the circular driveway in front of the building, along with the adjacent parking, simplifies transportation issues. The spacious, cheerful dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows (pictured above) and visitors are welcome, and the bright sunroom is perfect for residents who play cards or games, or have small gatherings. There is also the chapel, with its wood-beam ceiling, is a peaceful place where non-denominational services are held on Sundays, as well as the private backyard and garden features benches, raised planters, accessible walking paths, and is safely enclosed by a fence and locking gates. AgeSong University is close to public transportation by Muni (Lines #29, #44, and #52) and BART.
