    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Merced

    The mid-sized city of Merced, California, is southeast of San Francisco and boasts many attractions year round. Seniors can marvel at the MERCO Cycling Classic, Merced Antique Fly-In, The Big Valley Arts & Culture Festival, and the Central Valley Blues Festival.

    Assisted living facilities in Merced, California are classified by the state as residential care facilities. In these communities, residents receive assistance with the tasks of daily living, and they often receive help with medication management. Out of the 16 communities in the city of Merced and the surrounding area, five of those are within city limits, while the remaining 11 dot the landscape of neighboring communities, including Turlock, Madera, Modesto, Oakdale, Salida and Escalon.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Merced

    • For seniors who live in the Merced city limits, a bright spot is the lack of tax on Social Security benefits in California. This situation can help seniors afford living in the state.
    • The city's climate is appealing for seniors who enjoy warm weather with plenty of sun and little rain. In winter the city usually has no snowfall, with an average January low of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. The summers are hot and sunny, with an average July high of 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • The Merced area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Mercy Medical Center, Mercy General Hospital and Mercy UC Davis Cancer Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living is a bright side of the city, with a score only 1.1 points higher than the national average. Groceries, housing and miscellaneous costs all are about equal to the U.S. average, while health and transportation are seven and six points higher, respectively. The monthly cost of residing in an assisted living facility in Merced is equal to the national average of $3,750.
    • Air quality in Merced is quite poor, with an F grade. It has 92 orange days and five red days per year. Seniors with respiratory ailments could suffer serious problems throughout the year when engaging in outdoor activities.
    • Crime in the city is a severe problem, with more than twice the national average of violent crime and property crime that is much more prevalent than the U.S. average. Seniors considering moving into the city should be aware of the areas with higher crime and avoid living in those areas.
