Adult Day Services – San Francisco
Since 1991, Catholic Charities Adult Day Services has offered a sensible and affordable option for care and companionship during the day to residents of San Francisco. In addition to providing a broad range of recreational and social activities, our program offers non-medical personal care, supervision, and assistance with activities of daily living.
We offer an environment which respects the dignity and life experience of those who might otherwise become bored, isolated and lonely. We help their families keep them in their own homes and communities as long as it is safe for them to do so. We provide support to caregivers who may be facing one of their most challenging roles, often with little experience or training.
Our program is situated in a bright, spacious setting with multiple activity rooms and an enclosed courtyard in the back. With no more than 32 participants per day, we offer a range of fun and stimulating activities, the opportunity to make new friends, and an environment of warmth and respect created by our experienced staff.
We are conveniently located in the southern part of San Francisco with easy access to Highway 280 as well as Muni’s M-Line and 54-Line a half a block away. Ample free parking is available for visitors.

Adult Day Services Enrollment
To enroll in our program, please follow these four steps:
Step 1: Phone Screening
Please call 415 452 3500 to discuss your caregiving situation with our program manager.
Step 2: Trial Visit
After your brief telephone screening, we will schedule a trial visit which provides caregivers and participants with an opportunity to see how your loved one will respond to our program. It also allows program staff the opportunity to continue the assessment process that is necessary for determining if we can meet your family member’s various needs. Some caregivers choose to visit the program prior to the trial visit, though this is not required. There is no charge for this two-hour experience in our program.
Step 3: Completion of the Admission Paperwork
Admission paperwork must be completed to begin regular attendance in our program. Most of this paperwork can be quickly reviewed and easily completed by the primary caregiver. One form which can require more time and effort is the Physician’s Report for Community Care Facilities. Some doctors may need to schedule a test for tuberculosis (PPD skin test or chest x-ray) prior to completing their report. The earlier you can begin this step, the sooner we may be able to begin regular participation in our adult day program.
Step 4: One-Month Trial Period
The first month in our program is used for more intensive assessment of needs by our staff members and it allows our staff to develop a plan of care. It is often the most challenging period for those older adults who may be reluctant about leaving the comfort of their homes. A program manager can help you navigate any challenges which may present themselves during this time.
