Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response

Learn More About Assisted Living in San Francisco, CA

A city prone to fog, where mountains meet the ocean and man-made modern marvels seamlessly blend into the landscape, San Francisco has the appearance of an impressionist painting or a hundred-year-old postcard, no matter which direction you turn.

Weather and Climate

Like much of coastal California, San Francisco has a Mediterranean climate with warm winters and cool summers, where temperatures are moderated throughout the year by ocean breezes. Summers in San Francisco are known for cool winds and fog — an effect of low pressure from California’s interior valleys — so unlike most of the country, July in San Francisco tends to have cooler temperatures than October. The city also has many different microclimates as a result of varying elevation levels and weather influences from the Pacific, which means that certain parts of San Francisco are noticeably sunnier on a regular basis, whereas other areas tend to receive much more rainfall.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

A few U.S. cities have a look and feel so distinctive that they seem like their own separate country — or maybe even a dream. “You wouldn’t think such a place as San Francisco could exist,” the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas once observed. “The wonderful sunlight here, the hills, the great bridges, the Pacific at your shoes.” A city prone to fog, where mountains meet the ocean and man-made modern marvels seamlessly blend into the landscape, San Francisco has the appearance of an impressionist painting or a hundred-year-old postcard, no matter which direction you turn.

Sightseers will have their hands full. San Francisco’s cable cars — part of the world’s only remaining manually operated system — are one of the city’s signature tourist attractions, carrying passengers up and down the steep city streets of the downtown area. Cable car riders have easy access to the garden-lined zig-zags of Lombard Street, the pastel Victorian mansions called the “Painted Ladies” along Alamo Square, and the popular restaurants and shops at the Fisherman’s Wharf. The city’s most well-known landmarks, however, are first viewed from afar and are unmistakable when spotted. Offshore from the mainland, the jagged, weathered exterior of Alcatraz Island — home to the now-shuttered federal prison nicknamed “The Rock” — sits in San Francisco Bay in stark contrast to the undeniable beauty of the surrounding terrain and metropolis. And just to the west of Alcatraz, like an entry point to the Pacific Ocean, stand the burnt orange, art deco towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, a symbol of San Francisco which seems to disappear into the sunset like a fiery, steel mirage.

Naturally, San Francisco has remained a mecca for both artists and outdoors enthusiasts since its founding. Distinguished San Francisco museums include the Asian Art Museum, the de Young Museum, the Legion of Honor, the Museum of the African Diaspora, and the Museum of Modern Art. Even Alcatraz features art exhibitions in addition to its historical museum. The gigantic Golden Gate Park spans half the San Francisco Peninsula and includes museums, ponds, trails, nature preserves, a botanical garden, a carousel, and countless other attractions. A convenient escape to the wilderness, Muir Woods National Monument is only about a 30-minute drive north of the city and allows visitors to hike among redwoods on pristine trails and forest boardwalks. An added treat is a baby-boomer favorite called the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar, built in 1945 around the indoor pool of the historic downtown hotel Fairmont. This nostalgically tropical restaurant and tiki bar transports patrons to the South Pacific with its dimly lit, lush interior and often showers guests with artificial rainfall.

Transportation

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) provides many options for residents and visitors to get around the city with ease and safety. The Muni is San Francisco’s network of trains, buses, cable cars, and streetcars. SFMTA provides paratransit for riders with disabilities, as well as many discounts and accessibility options for seniors.

San Francisco is also known for its walkability and is one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the country, with ongoing plans for increasing the safety and quality of bike lanes.
