What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hercules

Nestled along the coast of San Pablo Bay and part of the San Francisco Bay Area, Hercules, California, sits on the land that was once home to the Hercules Powder Company, a factory that manufactured explosives. It is home to over 25,000 residents, and 14 percent of the population is 65 or older. Seniors and their families can choose among 65 facilities for assisted living care, including the five communities located within the city limits.

In San Pablo Bay and in all of California, assisted living residences are called residential care facilities (RCFs) for the elderly and are licensed by the California Department of Social Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hercules

  • As part of the San Francisco Bay area, Hercules has easy access to a rich arts and culture scene. Seniors might take outings from their assisted living communities to see a performance of the San Francisco Ballet or to hear the San Francisco Symphony play. 
  • Taxes are a source of savings for seniors on a fixed income. California doesn't tax Social Security retirement incomes, and seniors can apply for a reduction in the amount of property taxes they owe. Unfortunately, the state does tax all other types of retirement income, including pensions and retirement saving accounts withdrawals. 
  • The Hercules area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The rainy period in Hercules lasts for a little over seven months so seniors should check the weather forecast before heading outdoors. Winters are mild, and temperatures remain in the mid-50s to high 60s throughout. Summers are idyllic for spending time outside with daytime temperatures in the mid to high 70s. 
  • Seniors might find the Hercules area on the expensive side. The overall cost of living is 81 percent higher than the national average and 13 percent higher than the rest of California. 
  • Hercules is a safe town for seniors and their families. The overall crime rate is 42 percent lower than the national average and 46 percent lower than the state's average. The violent crime rate is 74 percent lower than the national average. 

Paying for Assisted Living in Hercules
