Everyone deserves to find a home where they will feel comfortable and supported as they age. For many, this means finding a community of peers with similar backgrounds and values. Affinity senior living is a type of community living that caters to the special lifestyle and needs of residents. For Chinese-Americans and expats in the San Francisco Bay Area, this could mean providing caregivers with a language proficiency in Cantonese and Mandarin, or scheduling events to celebrate Chinese holidays such as Lunar New Year. Chinese-speaking assisted living communities can offer native speakers a level of comfort that they simply won’t find at another community, especially if they don’t speak English fluently. Additionally, being around other residents who speak Cantonese or Mandarin and understand Chinese culture will help them to maintain an active social life.

There are several Chinese-speaking assisted living communities in San Francisco, including:

East Bay Assisted Living

East Bay Assisted Living promotes an environment of respect and independence, while fostering dignity and personal choice for community residents. It’s unique in that it caters predominantly to Asian cultures, featuring Asian food, news, activities, and languages.

The Fook Hong Care Homes

Fook Hong San Francisco and Fook Hong South San Francisco were designed to serve the needs of the San Francisco Asian community. They proudly serve a culturally-diverse program, incorporating meals and entertainment for community residents. Staff are trained with the ability to communicate in Cantonese, Mandarin, Taishanese, and English.

The Merced Communities

Merced Three Residential Care Home, Merced Girard Residential Care Home and Merced 1 & 2 Residential Care Home offer personalized care dedicated to ensuring the happiness and comfort of community residents. Residents consist mainly of Chinese and other Asian nationalities, and inclue both ambulatory and non-ambulatory seniors. Most care staff speak multiple Chinese dialects. These communities offer cozy, peaceful atmospheres with open living spaces and lots of natural lighting.

Living in a San Francisco senior housing community where you feel a strong connection with other residents is extremely important to overall quality of life as you age. Perhaps Chinese-speaking senior living communities are the right fit for your family. In order to make the most informed decision on Chinese affinity senior housing options, tour San Francisco communities in-person and ask questions of staff and residents. This will give you the most honest portrait of what life in these communities is like on a day-to-day basis.
