    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Corte Madera

    Corte Madera is a very small hamlet tucked into a corner of the Marin Headlands, overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area, within walking distance of both San Quentin and the Golden Gate Bridge. A little over 9,800 people live in Corte Madera, 17.5 percent of them seniors age 65 and over.

    At least 19 assisted living facilities operate in and around Corte Madera for local seniors. All assisted living facilities in town, like residential care facilities across the state, are licensed through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Corte Madera

    • The weather in Corte Madera is warmer and more variable than in nearby San Francisco. Summer highs on the leeward side of the Coastal Range average 81 degrees, while winter lows average a steady 42. The relatively warm ocean nearby sends 35 inches of rain inland a year, which can trigger the surrounding headlands to blossom and raise the allergy count, which may be an issue for some seniors with asthma.
    • The cost of living in Corte Madera can be quite high. This part of the Bay has a median home cost of over $1.3 million, and the cost of living across all categories of expenses averages three times the national rate. Healthcare is much less expensive in Corte Madera, where seniors pay an average of 8 percent less for hospital and practitioner care than the national average.
    • Crime rates in Corte Madera are less than one-third the national figures across all categories reported. Violent crime is even less common than property crimes, such as theft.
    • Marin Transit provides much of the public transportation in Corte Madera. Discount fares are available for seniors and riders with mobility issues, and dial-a-ride service may be available with same-day booking. Seniors who would like to travel elsewhere in the Bay Area can do so on the buses and trains operated by Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), which connects all of the communities in the region, from San Jose in the south to Solano County in the north.
    • The Corte Madera area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Marin General Hospital and Kentfield Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Corte Madera is part of Marin County, which is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
