I used to work at a small hospital, and part of my job was to refer patients to assisted living. I've referred people there--and also visited it and have gone to seminars there. They offer straight assisted living--no memory care. It's in a great location: centrally located in Hayes Valley, with easy access to public transportation. A bus stops right in front of AgeSong. And it's close to restaurants and shops. It also has great views. The top floor is used for multiple events--birthday celebrations, special events, and the views are spectacular. It's an older building, about six floors, but well kept up. Rooms are both private and shared--different sizes, different prices. It reminds me of a high-rise apartment complex. But there's no yard, no grass. The staff is fantastic, and there are more than enough to care for everyone--an excellent ratio of staff to residents. They also have licensed interns, who are able to give a little extra attention to the residents. They're all friendly, warm, welcoming. Management is good, too. They're the original owners, and they have an excellent reputation. The food is good--well balanced meals, good choices. And there are plenty of daily activities, ranging from Bingo games to arts and crafts.

Q: Describe your community's overall population of assisted living residents. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

A: We are a smaller boutique style assisted living for those that seek a smaller, more personal lifestyle.

Q: How do you keep residents’ families informed about their loved ones?

A: We accept small dogs. They need to have all their shots and be able to be cared for by the resident. We have outdoor patio areas but residents are responsible for all clean up.
