What to Consider About Assisted Living in Belmont
Belmont is a mixed residential/commercial community sandwiched between the high-tech capitals of San Mateo and Redwood City, on California's prosperous San Jose Peninsula. Only 27,000 people live in Belmont, which is small by Peninsula standards. Roughly 16.6 percent of Belmont's residents are seniors age 65 and over, with around 51 assisted living facilities in and close to town to provide independent senior living for them. These facilities, like all assisted living communities in the state, are licensed through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Belmont
- Belmont's climate is stable and warm, which is typical of California's Central Coast. Summer highs in Belmont average 81 degrees in July and August, with winter lows that rarely dip below an average temperature of 40 degrees, even in December. The interior shoreline of the Peninsula, where Belmont is situated, gets roughly 20 inches of rain a year. Grassy hills and large forested mountains nearby send pollen over town in spring and fall, which can be an issue for seniors in Belmont with asthma.
- The cost of living in Belmont is very high by national standards. Overall, the cost of living in Belmont is close to four times the average, though much of this is the $1.8 million median home price typical of a Silicon Valley city. Healthcare is significantly less expensive, however, with Belmont seniors paying close to 3 percent less than the national average for care.
Crime rates in Belmont are very low in all categories. Property crimes average just 40 percent the national rates, while violent crime in Belmont is less common still. Overall, the weighted crime rate for Belmont is just one-third the national average.
- Public transportation in Belmont is largely in the hands of Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). BART operates scheduled bus and rail service all over the region, from the southern reaches of the Wine Country to the edge of Silicon Valley, roughly 150 miles south. Seniors ride BART at a discount with valid ID, and dial-a-ride service can be had with same-day booking.
- The Belmont area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Sequoia Hospital and El Camino Hospital Mountain View, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Belmont has an array of community resources for seniors, including the San Mateo County Department of Health Aging and Adult Services Division, an organization that provides in-home care, abuse prevention and meal services, as well as more than half a dozen senior centers.
