AgeSong at Hayes Valley Has a Different Approach to Elder Care
AgeSong at Hayes Valley, located in San Francisco, specializes in elder care for high needs assisted living, behavioral health care, nursing services, clinical care, home healthcare, hospice care, and innovative forgetfulness care (also known as memory care, dementia care or Alzheimer’s disease care). Our community nestled in a restored Victorian in San Francisco’s lively Hayes Valley neighborhood. AgeSong’s assisted living community exudes a therapeutic vibe and services up to 40 residents.
Natural light pours through the large windows, granting views to the outside, and the ever-popular AgeSong Café often hosts get-togethers for residents, friends and family. Owned by the Pacific Institute, a Bay Area non-profit organization, our senior community prides itself on serving elders through not only care but education and research as well. By melding our inner community with our outer surroundings, we continually encourage, support and provide opportunities for our residents to grow. Our assisted living and dementia care programs mitigate loneliness and isolation and nurture learning and community involvement.
As we age, we deserve to live in an atmosphere affording us the freedom to be and become who we truly are.
Four elements define our approach to creating caring elder communities:
Integrative Care and Services. Here at AgeSong at Hayes Valley, we continually adapt to residents' needs. Our comprehensive care coordination supports even the most challenging activities of daily living, granting residents security in a homely atmosphere.
Challenging Current Attitudes. We embrace aging here which affects our own attitudes about how we see our elders and ourselves: aging is not merely a synonym of decline with us. Here at AgeSong, we are committed to shifting the attitude that aging equals inevitable decline. Instead, we celebrate aging and maturing and encourage people to be who they are, at any age.
Vibrant and Healing Environments. AgeSong at Hayes Valley employs natural materials, light, color, and sound to support health and healing. Our comfortable ambience enlivens the spirited attitudes of our staff, residents, students, volunteers, interns, and family members.
Learning Campus. Our programs and approaches combine research and educational principles with techniques that our resident and family members have taught us about dementia care — a truly individualized experience. AgeSong at Hayes Valley offers a variety of educational, cultural, and social programs, and we encourage residents, their families, staff, interns, and community members to participate.
