What to Consider About Assisted Living in San Bruno

Located just a few miles southwest of San Francisco, California, San Bruno once served as pasture land to feed the livestock of the San Francisco de Asis Mission. Today it is home to more than 32,000 residents and a senior population of almost 14 percent. There are 82 assisted living facilities in the area for seniors who need help with the aspects of everyday living, including 11 inside the city limits.

The California Department of Social Services is in charge of oversight and licensing of assisted living communities, known as residential care facilities (RDFs),  in San Bruno and throughout California.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in San Bruno

  • Seniors and their families can easily navigate this city and surrounding area by riding on the Bay Area Rapid Transit system, made up of buses and subway systems. For trips into San Francisco and Silicone Valley, the CalTrain offers commuter service. 
  • The San Bruno overall crime rate is four percent higher than the national average but three percent lower than the state's average. Seniors should take appropriate precautions to protect themselves and their property. 
  • Winters are a bit chilly, averaging temperatures in the mid-50s. Summers are mild with temperatures hovering in the high 60s to low 70s. The rainy season lasts a little over seven months. Seniors can enjoy outdoor activities but might need to grab an umbrella before going out. 
  • The San Bruno area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mills-Peninsula Health Services and the Kaiser Permanente South San Francisco Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors, on a fixed income, might appreciate the fact that California doesn't tax their Social Security retirement income. Also, seniors can apply to get their property taxes reduced. California does tax all other retirement income from pensions to money removed from IRAs and 401(k).
  • The arts and culture scene in the San Bruno area is thriving with its close proximity to San Francisco. Seniors might take excursions into the city to see a concert at the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall or a see art at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
