The San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living traces its history back to 1871 when the Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum and Home Society were incorporated “to found and maintain an asylum for orphan children” and “to establish and support a Home for aged and infirm Israelites.”
From that inception, the organization has grown and become one of the leading senior services and healthcare organizations in Northern California, providing a continuum of care and social services to enable seniors to age well and live their fullest lives. From the Jewish Home, founded in 1871, to their new Frank Residences and Byer Square, opened in 2020, the organization serves its residents and patients on a beautiful nine-acre San Francisco campus. Honoring Jewish traditions and embracing innovation, they are committed to enriching the quality of life of older adults of all faiths.
The organization is CMS five-star rated for care, providing skilled nursing, short-term rehab, and acute geriatric psychiatry. In addition, they offer assisted-living and memory-care suites, and a community-based network of services and programs for older adults. Care and services offered on the San Francisco Campus include:
Long term care: 245 beds
Short term care: 120 beds
Behavioral Health: 12 beds
Assisted Living: 113 Units
Memory Care: 77 Units
