What to Consider About Assisted Living in Elk Grove

Assisted living facilities in Elk Grove follow the rules and guidelines set by the California Department of Social Services, Senior Care Licensing Program. This program ensures the health and safety of residents in assisted living by enforcing regulations regarding care planning, nutrition services and intake and discharge procedures. It monitors facilities through 14 regional offices, the closest of which is in Sacramento. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Elk Grove

  • Elk Grove is one of the warmest places to live in California. Winters are mild, with daytime temperatures in the mid-50s, and summer temperatures are in the low-90s. To keep residents comfortable and active year-round, assisted living facilities have indoor and outdoor common areas and recreational activities.
  • Compared to California as a whole, Elk Grove is a cost-effective place to live. On a 100-point cost of living index, the city scores 134.9 versus the state score of 149.9. To help older adults afford local living expenses, several nonprofit organizations and programs provide financial counseling and assistance.
  • Elk Grove is a generally safe place to live, providing peace of mind for older adults relocating to the Sacramento region. The city scores 18 for violent crime and 26.3 for property crime on a 100-point crime index compared to respective national rates of 22.7 and 35.4. Assisted living facilities often have security measures in place to keep residents and their belongings safe, including alarm systems and high-security locks. 
  • Health care costs such as medical office visits and hospital stays cost about 10% less in Elk Grove than in the United States overall, which may benefit seniors managing chronic health conditions. While there are no major hospitals in Elk Grove proper, residents have access to numerous high-performing medical facilities in nearby Sacramento, including Kaiser Permanente Sacramento Medical Center and Mercy General Hospital.
  • According to the American Lung Association, the air quality in the Elk Grove region is poor, which may impact the health of seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular diseases. The organization gives the city failing grades for ozone pollution and 24-hour particle pollution levels but a passing score for annual particle pollution. Assisted living facilities offer indoor activities to engage residents sensitive to pollution.
  • California has high state income taxes, which may affect how much money some seniors have to put toward care expenses. While Social Security benefits are exempt, all other types of retirement income are fully taxable. Seniors may obtain tax filing assistance through local organizations such as the Area Agency on Aging.
