CiminoCare Brings Assisted Living to San Francisco’s Historic Portola District

Assisted Living Community Renamed ‘Portola Gardens’ to Reflect Neighborhood Heritage 

Residents at Portola Gardens senior living community enjoy all the benefits of living in San Francisco’s historic Garden District. At the heart of this community is the nostalgic Colonial Revival building featuring a private backyard and gardens ideal for visiting and outdoor activities. Inside, residents enjoy private and semi-private accommodations, all in a supportive and caring environment for assisted living and memory care.

As assisted living increasingly becomes an alternative to home care, the traditional nursing home, or convalescent hospital, Portola Gardens is an ideal and reasonably priced solution for senior living care. Here, experienced and dedicated caregivers provide personal assistance with daily living activities and 24-hour care. With skilled nurses on staff daily, they can professionally care for those who have diabetes, catheters, or are requiring oxygen care for example.

The San Francisco location provides a unique backdrop for quality senior living at Portola Gardens. From celebrating holidays, to performances by local school or cultural groups, to music, beauty treatments, and cooking demonstrations, the staff is able to draw upon the rich Portola District heritage as they plan life enrichment for residents. One of the most notable activities includes gardening, which is a reflection of the community’s historic Garden District location. Residents enjoy both indoor and outdoor horticulture as part of their day at Portola Gardens.

Rich with history and culture, the Portola District of San Francisco is affectionately known as the “secret neighborhood.” Tucked in the southeastern corner of the city, it is fairly undiscovered and often overshadowed by the more famous districts of North Beach and Chinatown. But for those that live there, they enjoy being part of a neighborhood that is known as “San Francisco Incognito.” This is a place where small bakeries, family-run businesses, and the much beloved McLaren Park create a serene, small town feel right in the heart of the city.
