Elk Grove is the southernmost large city in the greater Sacramento urban area. Home to 173,000 people, over 11% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over, Elk Grove maintains a quiet community life in its relatively small downtown area. Every first Friday of the month, local seniors join the many families in Elk Grove for a community art walk outdoors, which is almost never rained out in the generally mild and warm Sacramento-area climate. The Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center is one of two major hospitals on Bruceville Road that offers age-related medicine on its campus. Seniors who need help getting around can make it as far as the downtown Sacramento transit station on Elk Grove Transit, followed by a connection that can take them as far north as Roseville on Regional Transit. Both transit services offer dial-a-ride and discount fares for seniors with valid transit ID.

Home health and homemaker services in Elk Grove cost local seniors an average of $28 an hour, or $5,434 a month, according to the 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Seniors elsewhere in the nation pay somewhat less than this for equivalent services. Nationwide, home health workers charge an average of $23 an hour, or $4,385 a month, while homemakers charge an average of $22.50, or $4,290 a month.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Elk Grove, so data for the closest city, Sacramento, was used.
