Our community is dedicated and structured to help older adults maintain and enhance their lifestyle while remaining active and involved. Our apartments, dining options, activities, staff, management, and environment provide the freedom to relax and enjoy life in a safe, secure, friendly, and welcoming community that focuses on Living Well With Assistance. Your level of health and the level of services needed are all taken care of. This is true for memory care, as well.
Located in the heart of San Francisco, we provide a warm environment, built on strong Jewish values, welcoming residents of all faiths. Residents are afforded not only the freedom to relax and enjoy life while building new friendships, but also the opportunity to strengthen their minds with classes, lectures, and cultural events. We feature spacious, bright, private apartments in a variety of floor plans, each designed for ease of mobility.
As a resident, your monthly fees are typically subject to adjustment on an annual basis. These fee increases are provided with advance notice of at least 30 days and are determined based on the costs of operating the community.
Because everyone requires different levels of care or personal assistance, we develop your very own plan and all care is provided by our professionally qualified health services staff. However, we are not a hospital or a medical clinic. We do offer a wellness office on every residential floor. (If you are new to the Bay Area, we will even provide assistance with selecting a new primary care practitioner.)
Wellness at our community means making the most of your day and finding the best ways to enhance your physical, emotional, and mental health. We know that exercising your mind and body, and yes, your spirit, is important to getting the most out of life.
Yes, we do have a Wait List for both Assisted Living and Memory Care. The larger Assisted Living apartments have a much longer wait time than for Alcove apartments. This is the most common size apartment at RGP and usually gracious enough space for one person. One could wait up to three months for an Alcove, but up to a year or more for the one and two bedroom apartments.
Memory Care apartments are all private but most have shared bathrooms. With very limited inventory for the totally private apartments, it is imperative to get on the wait list and expect up to a year. We charge a $500 deposit, 100% refundable or applied to your future one-time Community Fee.
Our wide-ranging activities are designed by therapists to enrich daily life and the well-being of your loved one. We encourage and invite memory care residents to participate in programming and to really get to know each other and the staff. Memory care comprises one floor of Rhoda Goldman Plaza and its residents and staff are a tight-knit community within a community.
Our residents often surprise families with new interests — watercolor painting, clay sculpture, and storytelling. We have parties, music therapy, art therapy, dance and movement, baking, excursions, discussion groups, games, and more — there is something for everyone to enjoy every day. And because we maintain a high ratio of staff to residents, we’re always available for friendly chats and earnest heart-to-heart conversations.
Our staff are carefully trained to address difficult behaviors and to promote a sense of safety and well-being for residents. In addition, our treatment model validates each resident’s unique personality, emotions, and life story.
Studio, alcove, and one- and two-bedroom apartments include a kitchenette, roomy closets, and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. Additionally, our dedicated staff takes care of the weekly housekeeping, linen service, and apartment maintenance.
Our kosher menu is “made from scratch” and continually offers new choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, from 7am to 7pm.
The calendar of programs and events changes daily and the items below present only some of the opportunities available. There’s a lot to do and enjoy in the surrounding area — residents have countless choices to get connected and get involved.
