Neil6: "My wife was at Almond Gardens, and we were very pleased with that, but my wife passed away. I am very happy with the place, the staff made it all work, and they care about the people. Before my wife passed away, she was having problems with her lower body motor skills, so they would have one caregiver in front of her and caregiver behind her and they would walk her around; they went the extra mile. She had a little nice bedroom, I can’t even really complain about that. It’s... (read more)

Karen: "I went to Creekside, it's a very small facility, and the rooms were like hospital rooms with only a bed and a chair. They didn't have private bathrooms. It looked like a beautiful residential home on the outside, and it was clean inside. I didn't see anything going on at all. They had a general lobby/sitting room with overstuffed chairs. They had a patio and paths you could walk on."

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Auburn

The city of Auburn, Calif., is an old mining town perched in the foothills region a few miles northeast of Sacramento. Its 10 residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs) allow independent seniors a chance to live an active lifestyle in heavily forested hills, surrounded by bike and jogging trails. There are an additional 43 facilities located in the nearby communities. RCFEs in Auburn and elsewhere in the state are regulated by the California State Department of Social Services' Senior Care Licensing Program. The communities provide room and board and help with activities of daily living (ADLs) as determined by the plan of service.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Auburn

  • Auburn is situated halfway up the hills from the valley communities of the Sacramento area, so weather here can get both warmer and colder than on the valley floor. Daily highs in Auburn average 72 degrees Fahrenheit, lows average 50 degrees, and 37 inches of rain falls annually. It snows in Auburn, but as a rule only in the very coldest parts of winter.

  • Auburn's cost of living is significantly higher than the national average, but not bad by California's high standards. Health and grocery costs are about 10 percent higher than the national median.

  • Taxes are an issue for any Californian, but Auburn residents are not especially hard hit. Placer County imposes a 0.25-percent sales tax, which combines with California's standard 6-percent tax and a special 1-percent surtax to create a unified 7.25-percent duty on most goods. California does have some of the highest state income taxes in the country, however, and some retirement income is subject to it. 

  • Crime rates in Auburn for assault and other violent crimes rests close to the national average of 31. Property crimes are slightly lower than national figures (38.1) at 32.4.

  • Placer Transit provides discounted bus rides for seniors throughout the county and includes a Dial-A-Ride service. Within the city, Auburn Transit operates a fixed number of routes in the most built-up parts of town, as well as some of the unincorporated outlying areas. The city authority keeps single fares fairly low, and senior discounts are available.

  • The Auburn area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital and Sutter Roseville Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
