    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alameda

    Alameda is a city in Alameda County, California located on Alameda Island and Bay Farm Island. Alameda assisted living facilities are regulated by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. Like other California cities, these communities are called residential care facilities, and at least 75 percent of the resident population must be at least 60 years old to maintain the designation. Seniors have their choice of eight assisted living facilities in Alameda with 45 additional options in the surrounding areas of Oakland and Hayward.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Alameda

    • Alameda scores an 81 out of 100 on the Sperling's Comfort Index, indicating a more agreeable climate throughout the year. The area experiences a high of around 71 degrees Fahrenheit in July and a low of 44 degrees in January. The average rainfall in the city is 21 inches, and snowfall is rare.

    • The city offers a number of transportation options. AC Transit provides bus service to Alameda and the surrounding areas, including an express bus that runs to San Francisco. The BART shuttle service connects to most of the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Francisco Bay Ferry is also available to Alameda residents. All three services offer discount fares to seniors who are at least 65 years old.

    • The Alameda area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Alameda Hospital, Kaiser Permanente San Leandro Medical Center and Highland Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Alameda seniors over the age of 65 can take advantage of the many tax benefits available to them in California. The state offers the Senior Income Tax Exemption Credit, and California does not tax social security income, including disability benefits and survivor's benefits. Prescription purchases, whether medication or medical equipment, are non-taxable for all California residents.

    • The property crime rate in Alameda is almost even with the national average but is lower than the state average. The rate of violent crime in the city is significantly lower than the California and U.S. indexes.

    • Alameda's overall cost of living is higher than the state of California and is more than twice the national average. This is mostly due to the inflated cost of housing but groceries, health care and transportation are also above the U.S. average.
