What to Consider About Assisted Living in Folsom

Located in Sacramento County, Folsom is a name many are familiar with since   singer Johnny Cash made Folsom State Prison famous. Folsom has much to offer residents of all ages, including lakes, rivers, paved paths, parks, and a historic district — enough to have been named the “Best place to raise a family in California.” It's also a good place for seniors to find assisted living — with ten facilities in Folsom and 52 nearby. 

In California, assisted living facilities are considered Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE). Each is regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Folsom

  • The cost of living in Folsom is 55 percent higher than the national average, making it a costly city to live for seniors. Residents in assisted living facilities pay 12 percent more for groceries, 8 percent more for health care and 8 percent more on transportation services than others in the nation.

  • Folsom residents enjoy mild winters with the coldest months, October through April, averaging temperatures between 47 to 63 degrees Fahrenheit. Seniors enjoy warm summer months where temperatures average between 70 to 75 degrees and rarely exceed 95 degrees. Fit, healthy seniors should consider this for more outdoor ADLs.

  • The combined crime rates in Folsom are 51 percent higher than those found in neighborhoods of comparable sizes in the state. This is due mainly to property crime rates, which are still 18.5 percent lower than the national average. Violent crimes are also 300 percent lower than in the rest of the nation.

  • California is known for not being tax-friendly and does not provide seniors with a tax-exemption on retirement income, besides SSI. Redwood City residents have a combined 7.75 percent sales tax compared to the 6 percent national average and 8.54 percent state average.

  • The Folsom area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mercy Hospital of Folsom and Kaiser Permanente Folsom Medical Offices, in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses.

  • The air quality in Folsom is some of the worse in the nation. The American Lung Association (ALA) ranked it as one of the top 10 worse Ozone cities in the country. Seniors with respiratory issues may find difficulty breathing here.
