    At AlmaVia, initially, there was a confusion about the appointment that was made, but they were very good about finding a replacement person to give us a tour, and he was excellent. He was one of the nursing people on staff, so he answered a lot of our questions. Activities seemed fine to me and included art classes,...

Information About Independent Living in San Francisco

Information About Independent Living in San Francisco

The City of San Francisco is situated on a peninsula separating San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The Golden Gate Bridge spans a tiny isthmus that separates the city from Sausalito and the northern end of the bay. The city was founded by Spanish colonists in 1776, less than a week before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Today, San Francisco is among the world’s top banking and finance centers as well as a top tourist destination. San Francisco ranks 14th in the country in terms of population. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of more than 800,000. Its population density, at 17,179 people per square mile, is second only to that of New York City. The cost of San Francisco independent living is somewhat lower than that of the Big Apple, with a Consumer Price Index of
95.93.

Attractions

It is impossible to become bored with San Francisco independent living. Along with the traditional tourist attractions (cable cars, Alcatraz Island, Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf), the ambient eclectic architecture and world class shopping, culture and entertainment facilities make this a very appealing prospect for retirement. San Francisco and the Bay Area are home to a number of professional sports teams, including the San Francisco Forty-Niners (NFL football), and San Francisco Giants (major league baseball). The colorful annual Bay to Breakers footrace, from the Embarcadero on the bay to the Great Highway on the Pacific coast, has been going on since 1912. Among San Francisco’s famous museums are the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the California Academy of Sciences and the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. Other tourist attractions include the Exploratorium, an interactive science museum; the Steinhart Aquarium and the Morrison Planetarium.

Senior Activities

The San Francisco Senior Center is the oldest nonprofit senior center in the United States . It has been serving Bay Area adults over the age of 50 and their families since 1947. The center has two locations, in Aquatic Park on the bay by Ghirardelli Square and downtown. The 2,000 participants who walk through the doors of the center every year range from the fit and well to the frail or disabled, from the newly retired to the octogenarians and centenarians. The center provides a variety of services, including continuous education and healthy living programs, nutritious lunches and comprehensive social services. The Department of Aging and Adult Services, of the city’s Human Services Department runs a number of activities for seniors all over the city. Classes in computer literacy, quilting, painting, Tai Chi and many other courses are offered either free or for a small fee. Many centers offer low-cost meals and social services referrals. The aim of all of San Francisco’s senior service programs is to promote happy and healthy San Francisco independent living.

Medical Facilities

Access to good medical facilities is an essential component of San Francisco independent living. Seniors here are spoiled for choice. The University of California at San Francisco Medical Center ranks as one of the top ten hospitals in the country and the best in San Francisco. The Lakeside Senior Medical Center at UCSF provides specialist care including psychology, podiatry and laboratory services among others. Kaiser Permanente’s nine campuses serve the Bay Area’s 185,000 members. The staff at Kaiser combine cutting-edge technology with a warm, friendly environment to put the health of their patients at the heart of everything they do.

Transportation

San Francisco is nothing if not hilly so the provision of public transportation is a key aspect of San Francisco independent living. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency is responsible for making sure people are able to navigate the city easily. The San Francisco Municipal Railway, established in 1912, is one of America’s oldest public transit agencies. All Metro Muni underground stations are accessible by elevators from street-to-concourse and from concourse-to-platform. All Muni bus services are accessible for seniors and people with disabilities via ramps, kneelers and wheelchair lifts.

San Francisco’s location near the sea, its wealth of culture, sports, shopping and attractions too numerous to mention make it a great place to retire. Its Mediterranean climate offers mild temperatures all year round. The city is well equipped for San Francisco independent living with a wealth of senior activities, medical facilities and excellent transportation
options.
