What to Consider About Assisted Living in Citrus Heights

The California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division, monitors assisted living facilities in Citrus Heights and the rest of the state. It enforces rules related to care planning, staffing and building features and has stringent licensing requirements to ensure a consistently high standard of care. It also has a hotline that fields complaints regarding conditions or care quality.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Citrus Heights

  • There are no hospitals in Citrus Heights proper, but seniors can obtain care from nearby major medical facilities such as Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael and Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Center in Roseville. There are about 206 doctors per capita in Citrus Heights, which is comparable to national norms, and health care costs come in about 10% lower than the nationwide average.
  • With summer highs in the mid-90s, Citrus Heights is one of the warmest places to live in California. Winters are comfortable, however, with daytime temperatures in the mid-50s, making the city ideal for those who are sensitive to cold weather. The city gets no snow and about 21 inches of annual rainfall, and humidity levels are generally low throughout the year.
  • Crime is more common here than in a typical U.S. city, particularly property-related offenses, which may make assisted living an attractive alternative to living alone. On a 100-point crime index, the city rates 24.1 for violent crime compared to the national norm of 22.7. The property crime score is about 10 points over the national average at 44.7.
  • Citrus Heights is among the most affordable places to live in California, which may make it a financially viable option for seniors with fixed incomes. On a cost of living index based on a national norm of 100, the city rates 122.5. While this indicates that living costs are nearly 23% higher than the national average, this score is about 27 points below the California score.
  • The air quality in the Citrus Heights region is very poor and may exacerbate certain health conditions. The American Lung Association gives the region failing scores for ozone and 24-hour particle pollution. To help seniors stay active despite outdoor conditions, assisted living communities plan indoor activities throughout the year.
  • California has some of the nation's highest income taxes. However, seniors in Citrus Heights don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, which can provide significant savings for those who rely primarily on this source of income.
