Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community.

Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

Hearing Care and Assistance Overview

6/14/2018 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM PT

Did you know that 1/3 of people over the age of 65 have hearing loss?
Recent studies show that untreated hearing loss increases your risk of cognitive decline. Jessie Johnson joins us to talk about the importance of getting a hearing test and available hearing loss treatment options. We will discuss hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and communication strategies as well as the recent studies linking untreated hearing loss to cognitive decline.
Jessie Johnson has worked for the Hearing and Speech Center of Northern California for 17 years. She delivers educational presentations throughout the community on hearing healthcare. Providing compassionate and knowledgeable service to clients, Jessie also helps people understand their insurance process and how to advocate for themselves.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
