    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Goleta

    Known for its beautiful central California coastal beaches and home to the UCSB campus, Goleta, California has much to offer active, outdoor-loving seniors. Goleta has a population of just over 31,000, 16 percent of whom are seniors age 65 and older.

    There are three assisted living facilities in Goleta to serve these residents should they require support with daily activities, and 27 others in neighboring towns of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Ojai. In California, assisted living communities are called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs). They are licensed and regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) and Continuing Care Contracts Branch.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Goleta

    • Goleta boasts a comfortable year-round climate, making it a great choice for seniors who like to spend time outdoors. There are about 279 sunny days per year and approximately 35 days of precipitation. Summer’s high in July averages 82 degrees, and the winter low in January is 40 degrees.
    • Seniors in Goleta enjoy a crime rate lower than the national average. On a scale of 1 to 100 with 1 representing low crime, Goleta’s violent crime scores 13.4 and property crime is 23.8. These are much lower than the US numbers of 22.7 and 35.4.
    • The American Lung Association grades nearby Santa Barbara’s air quality with an “F” for ozone levels, although it scores an "A" for particle pollution. Seniors with lung or cardiovascular disease are particularly at risk when spending time outdoors when ozone pollution levels are high.
    • Goleta’s cost of living is twice that of the US average, and nearly 70 percent higher than the state average. However, much of this is due to the very high cost of housing. Seniors will pay less for groceries, utilities and healthcare in Goleta than the national and state averages.
    • Goleta is about 7 miles from the beautiful city of Santa Barbara (“The American Riviera”), which provides its senior residents with plentiful cultural activities. World-class dance, music, comedy and lecture events are plentiful in the area, which also claims the nationally recognized UCSB Arts & Lectures organization.
    • The Goleta area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital and Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Goleta

    California's Medicaid system, or Medi-Cal, offers four programs to help seniors pay for assisted living. The Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP) is designed to help those who are eligible for nursing home care to instead live in an assisted living facility. Room and board is not covered, but services such as personal care assistance, medication administration and prepared meals are.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in California page.
