What to Consider About Assisted Living in Menifee

Assisted living facilities in Menifee follow rules set by the California Senior Care Licensing Program. This agency supports the health, comfort and safety of assisted living residents through guidelines related to facility requirements, care services, meals and medication services. It conducts unannounced inspections throughout the year to ensure compliance and investigates complaints and incident reports. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Menifee

  • Menifee’s cost of living is 32% higher than the U.S. norm. However, local living costs are about 18 percentage points lower than the California average. This may make long-term care in this city financially feasible for those with limited resources.
  • The property crime rate in Menifee is close to national norms, with the city rating 31.8 on a 100-point crime index compared to the U.S. score of 35.4. However, the city’s violent crime rate of 8.9 is substantially lower than the national score of 22.7, which may make it an attractive option for active seniors.
  • Menifee is one of the hottest places in California, with summer temperatures near 100 degrees. There are few days in which humidity levels are unpleasant, which may benefit those with high blood pressure or cardiovascular conditions, and winters are comfortable with almost no snowfall and daytime temperatures in the high-60s.
  • While there are only about 100 doctors per capita, less than half the national norm, health care is very affordable in Menifee, with typical costs for inpatient and outpatient care coming in 15% below the U.S. average. Several hospitals are located near the city, including Menifee Global Medical Center in Sun City and Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar.
  • Menifee’s air quality is very poor and may be a consideration for prospective assisted living residents with heart or lung conditions. The American Lung Association gives the region the lowest scores possible across the three metrics it measures, including Ozone, Particle Pollution 24-hour and Particle Pollution Annual. Assisted living facilities organize indoor activities throughout the year, helping seniors sensitive to pollution to stay active.
  • Riverside Transit Agency provides transportation services in the Menifee region. It has a reduced fare program for those aged 60 and over, helping older adults save money on transportation services and have alternatives to paid services available through their assisted living communities.
