What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rohnert Park

The California Department of Social Services Community Care Licensing Division is responsible for licensing and monitoring assisted living centers in the state. It ensures that facilities provide quality care and a safe environment for their residents. The division conducts regular inspections so that senior living communities remain in compliance with applicable regulations even after the licensing process.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rohnert Park

  • The cost of living in Rohnert Park is 6.4% below the California average. Housing is generally the biggest expense, as costs significantly exceed the U.S. average. Groceries are relatively expensive, but other costs, such as utilities and transportation, are more in line with the national average. Fortunately, there are a number of government programs available to help low-income seniors afford the cost of living.
  • According to a 100-point crime index, Rohnert Park has a violent crime rate that is 8 points higher than the U.S. average. On the other hand, the city's property crime rate is 5.9 points lower than the national average. To avoid the impact of rising crime rates, seniors may want to consider moving to an assisted living facility, which often has security measures in place to protect residents.
  • In California, most forms of retirement income are taxable, including pensions, annuities and withdrawals from retirement accounts. However, Social Security benefits are generally not subject to taxes. The state also offers several programs, such as credits for senior heads of households and the Property Tax Postponement Program. If certain conditions are met, these benefits can save retirees hundreds or even thousands of dollars each year.
  • Rohnert Park has a Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and mild winters. The average annual rainfall is 32 inches, which is lower than the national average of 38 inches. Snow is rare, and there are 255 sunny days per year, more than the national average of 205 days. This makes the city an ideal choice for those looking to spend their golden years surrounded by pleasant, cool weather. Older adults can engage in numerous outdoor activities no matter the time of year.
  • Health-conscious seniors consider Rohnert Park an excellent place to call home. There are 222 physicians per 100,000 residents, which is higher than the U.S. average of 210. In addition, the American Lung Association gives the area high scores for ozone pollution levels, and residents are close to multiple medical centers, such as the Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa Medical Center
