    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chico

    A city in the Northern Sacramento Valley of California, Chico is home to Bidwell Park, one of the largest in the nation at 3,670 acres. The Chico Community Observatory is one of the amenities of the park that seniors can enjoy. Seniors make up over 12 percent of the population in Chico and can choose from 16 licensed residential care facilities located in the city and 13 available in the surrounding areas. These facilities are licensed through The Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chico

    • B-Line Transit is Chico's public bus system and runs through the city and to the surrounding areas, ensuring seniors have transportation available. All buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts and reduced fares are offered to seniors who are at least 65 years old, disabled or can show a valid Medicare card. Paratransit services are also available for a fee.

    • Seniors watching their finances may feel concerned that Chico has a higher cost of living than the national average. However, the city also ranks lower than the California average, making it a more budget-friendly option when compared to other areas in the state.

    • The 2018 State of the Air Report, drafted by the American Lung Association, ranks Chico at 21 for most ozone-polluted cities. This is a concern for seniors over the age of 65 and anyone with existing lung disease or cardiovascular disease.

    • Chico residents experience high levels of humidity but enjoy mild winters with a one-inch snowfall average. July temperatures peak at about 94 degrees Fahrenheit while winter lows average 37 degrees in January.

    • While Chico's property crime index is slightly higher than the national average, violent crimes in the city are more than five points lower when compared to the California and U.S. averages.

    • The Chico area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Enloe Medical Center and Riverside Convalescent Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
