Situated just south of San Francisco in scenic Mateo County, Daly City offers a pleasant coastal climate with less rain and more sunny days than the U.S. average. As a designated Age-friendly City, Daly City is attractive to retirees for its natural beauty and access to world-class health care and other urban amenities in neighboring San Francisco. Approximately 18.3% of Daly City’s overall population of slightly under 102,000 residents is aged 65 and over, which is nearly two points more than the national average.
The average cost of assisted living in Daly City is $6,319 per month, which is higher than the national average and California’s average. However, costs of individual assisted living facilities may vary depending on where they are located, the quality of the accommodations and the types of amenities and services they offer.

Peninsula Del Rey
Well-situated just 15 minutes from downtown San Francisco, Peninsula Del Ray offers an upscale environment that feels like home. We particularly liked the thoughtful detailing of the living accommodations, such as granite countertops, private balconies or patios, extra storage space and floor plans ranging from studios to two-bedroom units. On-site amenities include a heated outdoor spa, a salon/barbershop, a library and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Curb-to-curb scheduled transportation is available to local events, entertainment and shopping venues and appointments.
Serra Highlands Senior Living
This pet-friendly facility offers studio and one-bedroom floor plans and a well-kept outdoor living space with comfortable seating areas, scenic wooded walking trails and spaces for outdoor dining. What we liked best about this facility was the range of vegetarian meals offered regularly in the restaurant-style dining room. Guests are welcome to join residents for meals, and plenty of guest parking is available. A private dining room is available for private events and festivities.
Home Sweet Home Senior Care
With a resident capacity of 57, this facility is large enough for residents to choose from a variety of friends but not so large they feel lost in the crowd. There is a wellness team on duty 24/7 that provides a range of services such as diabetes care and insulin management and oxygen management, catheter management and incontinence management. It also provides transportation to appointments with off-site health care professionals.
Cypress at Golden Gate
Situated in the vibrant heart of downtown San Francisco, this facility offers studio and one- and two-bedroom pet-friendly units equipped with in-room emergency call systems. We loved how the central location makes it convenient for residents to enjoy a brief stroll to Golden Gate Park and other iconic San Francisco amenities. We were particularly impressed with the quality of this facility's dining options. Restaurant-style dining is available for three meals per day; the kitchen staff uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible and happily accommodates individual dietary needs and preferences.
This facility offers a "whole-person" approach to wellness that promotes personalized care plans designed to meet each individual's unique needs and preferences. We liked the on-site art room, the cozy, well-stocked library and the on-site pub and bistro where residents could enjoy a beverage or a light snack with friends. The restaurant-style dining room serves three meals per day, with chef-created daily specials available along with standard menu items.
Sagebrook Senior Living at San Francisco
We liked the grand piano in the common area next to the restaurant-style dining room and the attractive outdoor living space with comfortable seating and nature trails, but what impressed us the most about this facility was its calendar of Watermark University classes. Residents can learn a new language, brush up on their guitar playing skills, practice yoga and discover new gardening techniques along with a range of other physical, artistic and intellectual pursuits and pastimes. Floor plans at this facility include studio and one-bedroom apartments equipped with kitchens or kitchenettes.
Mills Estate Villa
With a resident capacity of 47, Mills Estate Villa was among the smallest facilities on our top 10 list. We liked the intimate environment, the attractive and cozy outdoor courtyard and the family atmosphere provided by the staff's caring, compassionate attitude. This facility is not pet-friendly, which makes it a good choice for those who suffer from allergies to pet dander. Floor plans include private suites and companion suites.
Sunrise of Burlingame
This 97-bed pet-friendly facility offers studio and one- and two-bedroom units equipped with in-room cable, internet and personal emergency call systems. The "anytime dining" concept of the on-site dining room allows residents to choose their own meal times, and the skilled kitchen staff accommodates special dietary needs such as low salt, low fat and diabetic diets. Amenities include an on-site coffee shop, a spa, a library and a private party space. Guests are welcome to spend the night and join residents for meals.
The Village at Hayes Valley
We loved The Village at Hayes Valley's setting in a fully restored Victorian mansion in one of San Francisco's best neighborhoods. With only 45 residents, this facility provides a boutique experience designed around individual needs. However, the only floor plan option here is companion suites, so while this may be a good option for those who would enjoy the company of a roommate, it may not be the best choice for seniors who appreciate their privacy.
The Carlisle's location on the top of Cathedral Hills provides one of the best views in the entire Bay Area. Other areas in which this facility stands out include the chef-inspired meals that cover a range of national and regional cuisines, chauffeured transportation to appointments, community events and shopping venues. Languages spoken here include English, Spanish, Tagalog, Russian and French. Elegantly appointed one- and two-bedroom floor plans are available.
