#SanFrancisco boots #Alzheimer’s patients to make way for townhomes

Screenshot 2018-01-22 at 05.41.54.pngCompassion from California’s elites is always instructive.

In this lesson, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that one of the city’s only subsidized residential care centers for Alzheimer’s patients will shut down by the end of 2018.

That’s progress for you. More space for tech elites, less care for dementia patients in an aging city.

So the Irene Swindells Alzheimer’s Residential Care Program, operated by California Pacific Medical Center in the city’s Presidio Heights neighborhood, is out. So are the 18 elderly patients living there.

The soon-to-be-closed campus will be sold to TMG Partners, a San Francisco developer that plans to construct up to 250 townhomes and apartments and nearly 400 parking spaces on the property, according to documents filed with the City Planning Department.
