What to Consider About Assisted Living in Davis

Davis is a college town that's about halfway between the state capital of Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area. Out of a population of almost 69,000, 10 percent are ages 65 and over. The city is home to 35 assisted living communities, plus a much larger number of small residential care facilities. California's Department of Social Services regulates these properties through its Senior Care Licensing division, which strives to ensure a high quality of care and maximum independence for all seniors in residential care settings. Residents in Davis's care homes can expect room and board included in their monthly payments, plus trained staff response to emergencies and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing and dressing.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Davis

  • Davis enjoys some of the best of both Central Valley and Bay Area weather. Daily highs here average 74 degrees Fahrenheit, while lows average 48 degrees. The city and the surrounding farmland enjoy 20 inches of rain in a typical year.

  • Residents of Davis, CA, pay 8.25-percent sales tax on most purchases. That's on top of California's 10.8-percent income tax, which affects most types of income. SSI and some retirement income are exempt, but it's best to check with a financial planner to be sure about your own retirement plan.

  • Vandalism and other property-related offenses are somewhat higher than the national average, while crimes against people and violent crimes are relatively low compared to the national average.
  • Davis has an extensive public transportation service, Unitrans, which operates throughout the city and seems to have stops on every block in the more populous areas. 

  • UC Davis has a world-renowned arts program, and unsurprisingly the city is filled with art and music. Numerous galleries, such as the Pence Gallery, compete for attention with the regular, impromptu public art shows that seem to break out here at the drop of a hat.

  • Healthcare in Davis is largely delivered, in a hospital setting at least, at the massive Sutter Davis Hospital to the west of town. This low, squat facility occupies several acres by itself and has such modern amenities that a visit to the inpatient center feels like a trip aboard a starship.
