    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grass Valley

    Grass Valley, CA, is one of the many small Gold Rush towns that line Highway 50 from Sacramento to the Nevada border. Six residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs) operate in this area that is nestled in the heavily wooded foothills region east of the Central Valley. These sites offer help with activities of daily living, such as dressing and grooming along with additional services based upon the prescribed service plan. The state regulates the RCFEs through its Department of Social Services Senior Care Licensing Division.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grass Valley

    • Grass Valley, CA, is up the hill from Sacramento, so it tends to get rather cooler and wetter weather than the state capital. Daily highs here rise to an average of 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and lows drop to 43 degrees. Rain and snow produce 54 inches of precipitation a year, which is much more than the nearby Valley communities receive.

    • The American Lung Association gives most of Nevada County mixed ratings for air quality. Though this mountain community is not bad for particulate pollution most of the time, ozone levels can get high.

    • Grass Valley is pricier than most communities in the United States and groceries and health costs are higher than other areas of California. The total costs of living index (142) is less than California's median range (152) but much higher than the national average of 100. 

    • Sales tax in Grass Valley is a flat 8 percent on most purchases. That's the combined effect of California's 6-percent regular sales tax and the various city and county sales taxes totaling 2 percent. Property taxes in Nevada County can get high, and most forms of income are subject to California's 10.8-percent income tax.

    • Crime in Grass Valley is lower than in most of the nation. Across all crime categories, Grass Valley consistently turns in figures that put it between half and two-thirds the national rates for violent and street crime.

    • Gold Country Stage operates six regular bus routes around the Grass Valley area. Discounts and monthly passes are available for seniors who need this service, including a "Golden Ticket," a lifetime pass for individuals aged 80 and older.
