Description of AgeSong University
AgeSong University, occupies a historic site that has served the evolving the needs of San Francisco’s elders since 1884. Set in the city’s peaceful Portola District, the original property was established with a generous bequest from land magnate James Lick as charitable home for senior women.
The present residence, a handsome 1932 Georgian Revival building, was designed by civic architect Martin Rist. The two-story brick manse is flanked by two large residential wings and a wide circular drive offers easy access to the stately, white columned entry. The site also features lush gardens and a private backyard.
The spacious living room serves as the heart of AgeSong University. Set with a beamed ceiling, fireplace and grand piano, it offers an inviting place for residents and guests to gather. The living room also forms the focal point of our residents’ extensive enrichment program, with activities that range from chair yoga and flower arranging to our daily morning meditation.
The large dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows that fill it with light and offer a view of the surrounding gardens. A tall pitched ceiling, fireplace and farm-style accents create a cheery setting for residents to engage over meals; the bright adjacent sun room adds to the airy feel. The backyard and gardens feature benches, raised planters and accessible walking paths, all securely enclosed with a fence and locking gate. The lushly landscaped grounds offer a lovely place for daily assisted nature walks and community barbecues, and a gardening club will soon join our regular activities. Frequent outings to nearby McLaren Park, with its scenic meadows and beautiful lake, bring our residents the joys of nature in an expansive setting. Similar to all AgeSong communities, AgeSong University offers a multifaceted approach to eldercare, in an environment that creates lively engagement and a sense of home. AgeSong’s team of skilled clinicians, care partners, interns and volunteers offer the elders encouragement and support through levels of care specifically tailored to each resident’s unique needs. AgeSong Living honors and continues to add to the rich lives of our elders, and gives them encouragement, support and the freedom to be precisely who they are.
