The dry air, mild winters, and very warm summers give Napa a microclimate that is ideal for seniors and the famed wineries of Napa Valley. The small city is home to approximately 78,000 people, with 16.6% being in the 65+ range. Although best known for its wine, the area is also a mecca for golfers, hosting the PGA Tour Safeway Open every fall. For food lovers, there are numerous restaurants, including some awarded Michelin stars.

The health of Napa’s older residents is in good hands. The city is home to the well-regarded Providence Queen of the Valley Medical Center and numerous in-home services. Figures published in the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey reveal the average cost of home care and home health care in the city to be $6,292. These figures are above the averages costs for home care and home health care in the U.S., where the typical American pays $4,481 and $4,576, respectively. However, when comparing costs, it’s worth remembering that the average cost of living in each state can vary.

Napa Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Napa:

VA Aid and Housebound Benefits

Address: 1301 Clay Street, North Tower, Room 1400, Oakland, CA, 94612
Phone Number: (800) 827-1000

U.S. military veterans can apply for this benefit, which is in addition to the VA pension. The benefit can be used to contribute towards the costs of in-home care, including health care and medications, for veterans who are housebound. The surviving spouses of veterans may also apply for the allowance. VeteranAid.org provides a free online tool for veterans and spouses to check if they are eligible.

Energy Savings Assistance Program (ESA)

Address: 2389 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 100, Sacramento, CA, 95833
Phone Number: (866) 675-6623

ESA is a free program for low-income residents of Napa whose homes are unprepared for changes in weather and contributing towards their excessive energy use and costs. The service can include insulating parts of the home, such as attics, walls, and basements, and repairing or replacing malfunctioning refrigerators and furnaces with energy-efficient equivalents. To be eligible, seniors must meet income guidelines. For households of 1-2 people, this is a maximum of $34.480 annually.

CalFresh – Food Assistance

Address: 2751 Napa Valley Corporate Drive, Building A, Napa, CA, 94558
Phone Number: (800) 464-4214

CalFresh is a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) that provides a means for low-income residents to buy food and seeds for producing food from local stores and farmers’ markets. Recipients can use a plastic Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) debit card and may also use it to purchase groceries online from Amazon and Walmart. The card can’t be used to pay delivery fees, although both online stores provide free delivery on grocery purchases of $35 or more.

Molly’s Angels – Transportation

Address: 433 Soscol Avenue, #100, Napa, CA, 94559
Phone Number: (707) 224-8885

Molly’s Angels is a nonprofit organization that provides several transportation services for Napa County residents aged 60 and over. These include taking seniors to their medical appointments and making emergency deliveries of groceries and medications during times of crisis, such as wildfires. Molly’s Angels also makes regular check-in phone calls with seniors using their services. The vehicles are owned by the drivers, who are all insured, trained and background-checked.

Medi-Cal

Address: 650 Imperial Way, Suite 101, Napa, CA, 94559
Phone Number: (707) 253-3818

Medi-Cal is a health plan for Napa County residents on low incomes. It can help pay for health care that isn’t covered by Medicare or private health insurance plans. To be eligible for Medi-Cal, single seniors must have monthly resources no greater than $2,000. 

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
