I visited this facility

I wasn't that impressed with The Village at Hayes Valley. The people were nice though. I went to both assisted living and memory care facilities. The main facility was pretty nice and airy, but I only went into the atrium and up to the administrator's office. I didn't get to go around and see where the people live. Across the street was the memory care, which was a really cute Victorian from the outside, but it was a little rough on the inside. The people were nice, but it had a rundown feeling to me. Where my father had been was up to $10,000 a month, and the memory care facility at this place was even more than that. The rundown-ness of the place didn't justify the price. One of the buildings was a lot nicer, looked a lot newer and cleaner, and didn't have that funky or that diaper smell. They had basic activities like bingo, and the memory care residents were engaged in a game or playing music in the kitchen area.

The Village at Hayes Valley was very average. They were very limited in their amenities. Most of the rooms were shared. It was a nice location. It's central city and a good neighborhood.

I am a current client of this provider

We got Honor for my mother because of their price and how they're easy to get started with. It's all app-driven and easy to manage. I get reports on my phone on each shift. They do light cleaning, cook, and assist mom in personal care. We are working on getting a team, and the caregivers are all wonderful. I would recommend that their care manager come and do a home visit to see how things are going.

I'm using Honor In Home Senior Care for my mother. They have caregivers who come into the house. My mother doesn't really need that much but my main thing was companionship because she has dementia. She could do a lot of things, but she needs companionship and a little bit of direction. I'm extremely happy with Honor In Home Senior Care. They are very good; I'm very satisfied with them.

I am a past client of this provider

We used Honor in Home Senior Care before for my husband. The service was for companionship when I was out. There were too many of them, they sent a different caregiver every time, and it just wasn't working. They had to have more than three days' notice to have anybody come out.

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.
