    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bakersfield

    Over 380,0000 people call Bakersfield, California home. About 9 percent of them are seniors, age 65 and over. This town in the southern Central Valley of California offers seniors an antique district, museums, art and cultural events and more. 

    The 39 assisted living facilities in Bakersfield are regulated by the California Department of Social Services and are licensed as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs). These communities provide room and board and 24-hour assistance to seniors while fostering independent living. Personalized care can include assistance with daily living activities, specialized care for dementia and developmental disabilities and medication assistance. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bakersfield

    • Bakersfield summers can be very hot, with temperatures sometimes reaching highs of 105 degrees. This may cause issues for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. The humidity in this area is low during summer, however, and winters tend to be mild though slightly more humid.

CTSA provides door-to-door shared transportation Monday through Friday for seniors over 60 who need rides to doctor appointments, shopping, and community centers. Get Bus offers reduced fare transportation to seniors over 65. 
    • The Bakersfield area is home to world-class medical facilities including the Bakersfield Heart Hospital, Adventist Health, and Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
