What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fallbrook

All assisted living facilities in Fallbrook follow rules and minimum standards created by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. This department enforces regulations regarding staffing and staff training, care planning and move-in and move-out rules. It also investigates complaints of substandard conditions or care, which individuals can submit through the CCLD Complaint Hotline

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fallbrook

  • The Foundation for Senior Care, a nonprofit organization that serves the Fallbrook region, provides transportation services to those aged 60 and over. This donation-based program provides rides to local and out-of-town destinations, as well as grocery delivery services. Transportation is available on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 48-hour reservations are preferred. In addition to this, many assisted living facilities provide private transportation and scheduled services to reduce residents’ reliance on personal vehicles.
  • Seniors in Fallbrook pay state income taxes on most types of retirement income. However, the state has a senior income tax exemption, allowing older adults to double the standard personal exemption. Additionally, the state doesn’t impose income taxes on Social Security benefits, which may help some seniors afford local long-term care expenses.
  • In Fallbrook, health care costs come in about 15% below the national norm, promoting affordable care for seniors and those managing chronic conditions. While there are no major medical facilities within the city proper, Temecula Valley Hospital is located just 10 miles away in Temecula.
  • Crime is less prevalent in Fallbrook than in a typical U.S. city, which may foster the environment many seniors are seeking for retirement. On a 100-point index that gives lower scores to communities with less crime, the city scores 17.7 for violent crime, about five points lower than the national norm, and 33.8 for property-related offenses versus 35.4 nationally.
  • Fallbrook’s weather is generally pleasant throughout the year, earning the city a score of 9.6 on a 10-point comfort index. Daytime temperatures range from 67 degrees Fahrenheit in the coldest part of winter to 87 degrees Fahrenheit in late summer, and the city gets 14 inches of annual rainfall. Many assisted living facilities have indoor and outdoor amenities and activities to accommodate a variety of preferences.
  • The cost of living in Fallbrook is 53% higher than the national norm and a few percentage points higher than California’s average, mainly due to high housing costs and miscellaneous expenses, such as clothing and restaurant meals. For many seniors, choosing assisted living is an effective way to control monthly expenses.
