What to Consider About Assisted Living in Napa
The city of Napa is the county seat of Napa County, one of the world’s most famous wine-producing regions. With its proximity to wineries and the abundance of historic districts, the city is a vibrant home to 79,774 residents, 14.9 percent of whom are 65 and above. This senior group has plenty of assisted living options to choose from, with 26 facilities located within the city and 70 more in surrounding neighborhoods.
In Napa City and the rest of California, these facilities are called Residential Care for the Elderly or RCFEs and are licensed through the Senior Care Licensing Program of the state’s Community Care Licensing Division, Department of Social Services.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Napa
- Napa has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Napa Senior Center, a recreational venue that offers various health and fun activities to residents at least 50 years old. Services include fitness classes, holiday meals and crafts.
- The Napa area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the St. Joseph Health-Queen of the Valley Medical Center and the Napa State Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- The Napa Valley Transportation Authority operates the Vine Transit, a public transportation service within the city of Napa and the rest of the county. Seniors 65 and above are given fare discounts.
- California’s income tax policy does not offer much financial relief to seniors. Although Social Security earnings are tax-exempt, other forms of retirement and pension income are fully taxed. With the state’s high income tax rates, this leaves Napa seniors with less funds for their expenses.
- The city of Napa is one of California’s more expensive locations, with an overall cost of living index of 177.5, surpassing the state’s 168.6 and the national index of 100. However, Napa seniors get to enjoy relatively more affordable healthcare, which at 91, is lower than the state and national averages.
- Sunny days are prevalent in Napa throughout the year, averaging at 260 days annually. The comfort index is listed at 81 out of 100, with summer’s high average temperature of 86 degrees just slightly above the comfort range of 70 to 80 degrees.
