What to Consider About Assisted Living in Placentia

The California Senior Care Licensing Program oversees assisted living facilities in Placentia and across California. This program conducts regular inspections to ensure that long-term care communities provide suitable environments and adequate care services that support the health and safety of aging adults.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Placentia

 

  • Placentia receives an overall comfort index rating of 9.3 out of 10, making it one of the most pleasant environments in California. Seniors can look forward to summer temperatures in the mid-80s, warm winters and 276 days of sunshine.

 

  • Average living costs in Placentia are 38% higher than the U.S. national median. However, local costs are consistent with the California state average. While grocery, housing and transportation costs are high, assisted living facilities typically include these items in monthly rates.

 

 

  • Seniors can get around Placentia using the Orange County Transportation Authority's services. In addition to its fixed-route services, the OC ACCESS service provides scheduled curb-to-curb transportation for individuals who are elderly or limited by a physical or cognitive impairment. Seniors aged 60 and older are eligible for reduced fares.

 

  • Compared to other states, California is less tax-friendly. While older adults do not pay taxes on Social Security benefits, they do pay taxes on income from retirement accounts and pensions. Residents of Placentia also pay some of the highest sales taxes in the United States, with a combined state and local rate of 8.75%. Fortunately, numerous financial aid and benefits programs can help cover the cost of long-term care.

 

  • As a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities, Orange County has several initiatives to make its communities livable for older adults. Its senior services offer elder programs in county facilities, host senior-focused events and television programming and ensure informational resources are readily available.

 

  • Unfortunately, the air quality in the Placentia area is quite poor. Both high ozone days and 24-hour particle pollution receive an F grade from the American Lung Association. However, the area does receive a passing grade for its levels of annual particle pollution. Additionally, assisted living facilities often use air filtration systems.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Seniors with minimal care needs can save nearly $3,600 per month by opting for adult day health care, which involves part-time support. In-home care is an option for seniors who need help with personal care and household tasks, while individuals who require light medical services may opt for home health care. Seniors who want to receive care at home can expect a 12.6% increase in their monthly care expenses compared to assisted living fees. For those with more complex medical conditions, nursing homes offer a higher level of support than assisted living facilities, resulting in a 74% spike in monthly care costs.
