    What to Consider About Assisted Living in El Cerrito

    El Cerrito is located in Contra Costa County, California and is just a short distance from some of the San Francisco area's most popular tourist attractions such as Alcatraz and Tilden Regional Park. The city is home to about 25,000 residents and nearly 20 percent of those living in El Cerrito are aged 65 or older. 

    Seniors who require 24-hour personal care can choose from 87 assisted living facilities in the El Cerrito area. In El Cerrito and throughout California, facilities that provide assisted living services to elderly individuals are officially known as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs), and are regulated by the California Department of Social Services

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in El Cerrito

    • El Cerrito has few facilities to choose from in the event of medical emergencies or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in San Francisco.
    • Seniors have access to safe transit via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system, which provides routes throughout El Cerrito and surrounding areas. Reduced fares are available to seniors. 
    • Crime rates in El Cerrito are high when compared with other cities in California, with a property crime rate that's more than double the state average and a violent crime rate that's nearly 30 percent higher. Seniors and should ensure that RCFs they're considering have adequate security systems. 
    • The cost of living in El Cerrito is more than 128 percent higher than that of the average U.S. city. Seniors who are on a tight budget might find the area too expensive. 
    • El Cerrito's weather is mild year-round with an average high temperature of  74 degrees in July and an average low temperature of 42 in January. Seniors living at RCFs in the area can enjoy plenty of outdoor activities. 
    • Although the air quality in El Cerrito and throughout Contra Costa County has received a passing grade from the American Lung Association, ozone pollution levels in the area are high and may negatively affect the health of seniors, especially those with respiratory illnesses.
