What to Consider About Assisted Living in Redding
Redding is a popular tourist spot near the headwaters of the Sacramento River, in the far-northern reaches of California's Central Valley. The city has 17 assisted living communities, all of which are regulated on the state level by the California Department of Social Services Senior Care Licensing division. Residents in these communities may expect every effort to be made to help them live as independently and with as much privacy as their health allows. In addition to the state guidelines, residential care homes in Redding offer room and board, 24-hour supervision and help with residents' activities of daily living (ADLs), such as grooming, dressing and personal care needs.
