    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Placerville

    The origins of Placerville reach back to the Gold Rush when the city was called Hangtown. Seniors interested in history may enjoy exploring the many Placerville sites that are California Historical Landmarks, including the western terminus of the Pony Express.

    Seniors in need of help with daily tasks will find Placerville has five assisted living facilities and there are 11 more in nearby communities like El Dorado and Camino. These are known as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), and are administered by California's Department of Social Services, Senior Care Licensing Program.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Placerville

    • The weather in Placerville is comfortable throughout the year. The January low averages 36 degrees, and the July high is around 92. The city averages only one inch of snow each year, and gets 244 days of sunshine, making it a great destination for seniors who like to spend time outdoors.
    • The Placerville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Marshall Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Transport in Placerville is provided by El Dorado Transit. Seniors are eligible for a discount of up to 50 percent, and may also be eligible for flexible curb-to-curb services, including Dial-A-Ride and ADA Paratransit.
    • The cost of living in Placerville is 43 percent higher than the U.S. average. Housing prices have the greatest impact on this high cost of living, so the price of essentials is not as high as that number suggests. Groceries are only 4 percent higher than the national average, and healthcare is actually 13 percent lower than the U.S. average. 
    • Placerville's crime rate is quite high and it is less safe than 87 percent of California's towns and cities. The violent crime rate is 2.53 per 1,000 residents, slightly lower than the Californian average of 4.45. However, property crime occurs at a rate of 35.48 per 1,000 residents, significantly higher than the state average of 25.53.
    • Seniors who receive income from a pension or retirement fund are subject to income tax in California. This can have a large impact on funds available for assisted living. Social security retirement benefits are tax exempt, but seniors will still need to pay sales tax, which is among the highest in the nation.
