    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Petaluma

    Petaluma, California, is a city in Sonoma County that lies in the heart of wine country just 37 miles north of San Francisco. It's home to a mid-sized population of 60,000 of which 15.6 percent are over the age of 65. This senior population may choose from three assisted living facilities within Petaluma itself and 29 in the surrounding area. 

    In California, communities that provide room, board and care for seniors over 60 years old are regulated by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) and are referred to as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Petaluma

    • Seniors living on a tight budget may have challenges living in Petaluma, as the cost of living is 90.4 percent higher than the U.S. average. This is mainly due to high housing costs, but groceries and transportation are also higher than national medians. Healthcare, however, is eight points lower than the national average. 
       
    • Active seniors will appreciate Petaluma’s warm, dry summers and short, mild winters. The city averages zero inches of snowfall and 29 inches of rainfall annually. Temperatures range from highs of 82 degrees Fahrenheit in July and lows of 39 degrees in January.  
    • Petaluma is a relatively safe place for seniors to live. The crime rate is below U.S. averages and the city is safer than 30 percent of other U.S. cities. Violent crime and property crime scored 25.1 and 23.1 respectively, out of 100 (1 being safest).
