What to Consider About Assisted Living in Redding

Assisted living facilities in California are licensed and monitored by the Senior Care Licensing Program, with 14 regional offices throughout California. The Chico office serves Redding and other Northern California communities. The agency maintains a hotline for complaints and provides quarterly updates on licensing changes and other relevant topics.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Redding

  • Redding gets more sun than the national average, making it a great option for those who enjoy spending time outdoors. However, outdoor temperatures can be hot in the summer. The area gets marginal snowfall of an inch or less per year and an average amount of rainfall. 
  • Although the cost of living in Redding is 7.9% higher than the national average, it’s substantially lower than the overall average for California, making the community a good option for those wanting to live in California without the hefty price tag.
  • California has a reputation for having high taxes, but the tax climate is actually fairly friendly to retirees on the lower end of the income scale. Social Security is not taxed in California, and the highest tax rates on other kinds of retirement income are reserved for the wealthy.
  • Both property crime and violent crime rates are significantly higher in Redding than the national average. Fortunately, many assisted living facilities have safety measures in place such as locked entrances, security staff, cameras and alarms.
  • Redding has a warm climate, with average daytime highs ranging from the 50s to the 90s depending on the time of year. Rainy days are rare from May to October, giving seniors plenty of opportunity for outdoor recreation such as golf or pickleball.
