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.

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.

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.
