Paradise is in the Sierra Nevada Mountain foothills and has about 18,000 residents, approximately 40% of whom are retirement-aged. It has a range of benefits for older adults, such as a low cost of living, a warm climate and high access to affordable health care. It’s also home to several agencies and assisted living facilities with the access to services and support older adults need as their care requirements change.
Assisted living is ideal for older adults who don’t need extensive skilled nursing services but cannot live at home safely and comfortably. It may be a good option for those who need daily personal care services such as help with grooming or dressing and services such as daily meals and recreational activities. Care costs vary depending on a facility’s amenities, but on average, Paradise seniors pay $5,106 for monthly care.
In this guide, seniors will learn more about local assisted living costs and how they compare to local alternatives and care in other California cities. The guide also features an overview of assisted living payment options and a resource table with agencies and programs that serve seniors.
