What to Consider About Assisted Living in Salida
Salida is a small farm community in California's Central Valley, roughly halfway between the slightly larger communities of Manteca and Modesto. Almost 14,000 people live in Salida, just 8 percent of them seniors age 65 and over, and the region inside and around Salida's city limits is served by 29 assisted living facilities.
In Salida, as in the rest of the state, assisted living communities are required to maintain current certification through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Salida
- Salida's weather can be hot and humid in summer, as water vapor rises off of the large farm tracts that surround the town. Summertime highs here average 94 degrees. In winter, when the uncultivated areas tend to turn green, lows average 40 degrees and 13 inches of rain fall in the area. The heightened pollen count during these times can be an issue for some seniors with asthma.

- Salida's public transportation is in the hands of Modesto Area Express (MAX), which operates multiple routes around the north side of town. Seniors and riders with disabilities qualify for a discount on MAX buses with valid transit ID.
- The Salida area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Kaiser Permanente Modesto Medical Center and Doctors Hospital of Manteca, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
