Laguna Grove Care Senior Community Opening in Hayes Valley
The newly built 56-bed Laguna Grove Care Senior Community at 624 Laguna Street opened its doors on Friday, August 26, 2005 to praise from San Francisco’s District 5 Supervisor, Ross Mirkarimi and Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Laguna Grove Care was developed and is being managed by AgeSong, a Hayes Valley based, family-run company with the vision of reasserting the value of aging and of being an Elder.
Supervisor Mirkarimi showed his support at the Grand Opening and Rep. Pelosi thanked the AgeSong team for their leadership in caring for the most frail in our community. “AgeSong is cutting edge compassion to assisted living care from an inflexible institutional practice of yesteryear” stated Supervisor Mirkarimi at the Grand Opening of the new community. Rep. Pelosi stated: “Congratulations... This new facility embraces what we all hope for in elder care services. This safe and beautiful environment with character and warmth creates a community that feels like home. This new facility will allow San Franciscans to preserve valued local relationships when they can no longer live alone.”
Laguna Grove Care is an expansion of Hayes Valley Care, a 47-bed senior care community at Hayes and Laguna. Hayes Valley Care began as little more than a dream in 1995 when three brothers decided to combine their diverse backgrounds as psychologist, attorney and spiritual wayfarer in pursuit of a common mission to create therapeutic environments for San Francisco’s aging population. Hayes Valley Care opened in 1997, providing a community in which people could feel safe and supported to live all the different dimensions of who they are. Today, the AgeSong team has grown to include their sister Elke, and fifth business partner, Chad.
