This place is very clean, attentive staff on call at all times and from my experience, I can say that this is the best place I have ever been to when it comes to this type of senior care.I was afraid at first because of all the elder abuse stories,but this place is different.There is no danger of any kind to the residents here.They have memory programs that are helping my aunt before the disease gets progressivley worse, she is such a sweet lady, and the longer she keeps her cognitive functions, the better for us.Anyone in my city who needs help in this way,might look into this place first because if they do, they wont want to search any further.I am going to visit her tomorrow, and Saturday, the other days of the week she has therapy. Wonderful place.

My grandmother spent two years at Vintage Senior Living before poor health forced her into a nursing facility. Her time there was overwhelmingly positive. The facilities themselves were beautiful, clean and homey. Other assisted living facilities have the tendency to be cold, utilitarian and reminiscent of a hospital. Vintage was a warm, friendly environment. The weekly schedule was filled with activities ranging from art making to exercise therapy and bingo. The dining facilities were clean and elegant and the food was nourishing. Beautiful outdoor garden spaces made this a tranquil and relaxing environment for my grandmother. The staff was mostly excellent, especially the dining and activity staff members. Staff members seemed to be instructed in the ways of old-fashioned politeness and etiquette, which residents strongly responded to. Overall, Vintage was a well-appointed, serene and positive environment for my grandmother and for the seniors that called it home. Most importantly, it was a community that she belonged to, filled with her friends, her social life, her spaces. It was a nice place to live and a nice community to be a part of.

Vintage Golden Gate offers independent living, assisted living, memory care, and short-term care. I've referred clients there, and I know some of the staff. The staff is very good--knowledgeable and attentive.
It's located on 19th Ave., out in the Sunset District, which tends to be foggy. They have nice grounds and a garden area, but it's not used much because it's often windy and cold. There's good access by bus and car, and good parking.
The facility is quite nice, with a tastefully appointed lobby and a cheery, well lit dining room. The rooms range from very small to a few large rooms--and the prices reflect that. Many of the rooms have nice views. The main areas see a lot of social engagement: lots of groups of 2 or 3 playing cards or working puzzles or knitting.
I give the food a B+; they offer a lot of choices and use fresh ingredients.
There are a number of activities during the day: exercise classes, Bridge classes, card games, current events, etc.

Vintage Golden Gate is an upscale, beautiful place--but also pricey. They offer assisted living, independent living, memory care, and short-term rehab care.
It's state-of-the-art and new: all private apartments in assisted living and independent living, with a variety of floor plans. And the apartments are large. It has a really homey atmosphere, weekly housekeeping and laundry service. It's even pet-friendly.
It's in the heart of San Francisco--close to transportation (and they also provide transportation for doctor visits, errands, even to see family members).
The staff is very professional, friendly--and they offer 24-hour care.
One of the things that really stands out is the activities program. Every resident has his or her own plan, and they have a lot of choices: history, cultural, and educational classes; all kinds of exercise classes, etc.
The food is another standout: They have a licensed chef, and the food is excellent. They even offer candlelight dinners twice a month, and each resident can invite guests.

My grandpa is currently residing at Vintage Golden Gate and speaks well of all of their services.
The chefs provide two to three meals on a daily basis in a nice, diner/restaurant type of setting. My grandfather has reported that the cooks are very good at what they do.
You can have up to three bedroom apartments, and they're kept clean by the workers. The building is new, about ten years old. It has a very large lobby and live birds!
There's also a laundry room (workers do the residents' laundry but the room can be used by residents if they desire to use it), a salon, a library, and a garden. On top of that, the staff maintains activity rooms that keep the residents busy throughout the day.
The workers themselves are very corteous and treat the residents with dignity. The price is very decent considering the quality of this place!
5/5 stars. Seriously consider using Vintage Golden Gates.
