    What to Consider About Assisted Living in San Francisco

    San Francisco is an iconic destination, known for the Golden Gate Bridge, hippy culture and Alcatraz. Seniors wishing to retire to the area can enjoy a diverse city with great food and abundant arts and culture. The city has a sizable senior population with almost 15 percent of San Francisco's 885,000 people aged 65 and older. There are 61 assisted living facilities in the area catering to this population, which are licensed by the California Department of Social Services, Senior Care Licensing Program.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in San Francisco

    • San Francisco is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
    • San Francisco's overall crime rate is 70 crimes per 1,000 residents, higher than 99 percent of California's other towns and cities. The property crime rate of 62.48 is more than double the California rate. Seniors may wish to inquire about security measures when touring assisted living facilities.
    • The San Francisco area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The SFMTA provides public transportation in San Francisco and riders aged 65 and older are eligible for discounted fares or free transport. The SFMTA also has a paratransit service for people who are unable to use public transit.
    • The Sperling index rates San Francisco's cost of living at 305, which is 205 points higher than the national average. The high cost of housing has the largest impact on this ranking and seniors with health conditions can save money on healthcare which is ranked seven points lower than the U.S. average.
    • While Social Security Income is exempt from state income tax in California, money from pensions and retirement funds is subject to income tax. State sales taxes are also high, which may mean less money available for assisted living budgets.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in San Francisco

    San Francisco, and California as a whole, is focused on keeping seniors in their own homes for as long as possible. Financial help in paying for assisted living facilities is extremely limited when compared to in-home or nursing home care as a result of this statewide policy. The Assisted Living Waiver (ALW) program is available in San Francisco for people with full-scope Medi-Cal eligibility, although this does not cover all aspects of assisted living.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in California page.

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
