What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cathedral City

The California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division regulates and licenses assisted living communities in Cathedral City and throughout the state. The agency ensures communities can properly care for their residents by evaluating their quality of services, day-to-day operations and health and safety protocols. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cathedral City

 

  • Based on a 100-point index, crime is low in Cathedral City compared to U.S. figures. The city ranks at 13.1 for violent crime and 30.5 for property crime, while national averages land at 22.7 and 35.4. Moving to an assisted living community can provide additional reassurance since many locations have security features, including keypad entries and around-the-clock staff, to help residents feel safe. 
  • Although Cathedral City's cost of living is almost 21% higher than the national average, it's lower than California's statewide average. On a 100-point index, Cathedral City ranks at 120.8 compared to California's score of 149.9. Moving to assisted living may reduce expenses even further since these communities offer fixed monthly rates for housing, meals and most on-site services and amenities. 
  • California isn't particularly tax-friendly toward retirees, leveraging some of the highest income tax rates on retirement account withdrawals and pensions in the country. However, Social Security benefits are tax exempt, and the state offers multiple senior citizen property tax relief programs, which may offer financial assistance for those meeting certain age and income requirements. 
  • In Cathedral City, there are about 99 physicians per 100,000 people, which is significantly lower than the national average of 210. However, health care prices are 16.5% below national figures, and the city offers easy access to medical services at multiple clinics, including Centro Medico Cathedral City and Eisenhower Health Center at Cathedral City. Assisted living communities can help residents coordinate care with off-site providers, and some provide non-emergency skilled nursing services on-site. 
  • Cathedral City has a year-round warm, sunny climate with temperature highs of 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer and lows of 60 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter. On average, the city experiences 271 sunny days per year, making it an ideal destination for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities such as gardening or walking.
