    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ojai

    Ojai, a small community nestled in a mountainous valley just off the Pacific Coast Highway has over 7,500 residents with a large senior population of almost 20 percent. The valley is surrounded by hills and mountains making it a scenic location to settle into assisted living. There are 21 of these facilities in the Ojai area. All facilities across the state of California are known as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly, or RCFE’s, and are highly regulated with strict laws and regulations. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ojai

    • The weather in Ojai, California, is quintessential Southern California for most of the year, with highs never cresting the mid-80s and lows hovering in the mid-50s at night. As Ojai is surrounded by mountains, winter temperatures sometimes drop into the high 30s. 

    • As Ojai is a relatively small town and is far enough away from Los Angeles to escape the smog that hovers above it most of the year, the air quality is quite good. However, wildfires are a concern on a yearly basis, effecting both overall safety and air quality for seniors.

    • Overall, Ojai is more expensive than most communities because it is considered a vacation destination in the Southern California and Central Coast regions of California. However, the main reason this is the case is the median housing cost in the Ojai area. Other things, like groceries, utilities and miscellaneous costs are actually below the national average.

    • The crime rate in Ojai is 66 percent lower than the national average and 76 percent safer than most towns in America. Crimes can usually be counted on one hand, annually.

    • As Ojai is a small town nestled in a valley in the coastal mountain range, so there isn’t a ton of public transportation. Gold Coast Transit buses provides transportation between Ojai and nearby communities, but not much around town. Ridesharing services are available, as are taxis, but they aren’t as prevalent as they might be in a big city. 

    • The two Ojai hospitals have been around for many years—the Ojai Community Valley Hospital and a Providence Hospital center. While they are modern and have been updated recently, the nearest larger medical center is a thirty minute drive south to Ventura.
