What to Consider About Assisted Living in San Juan Capistrano

The California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division, licenses all assisted living facilities in San Juan Capistrano and the rest of the state. This department requires facilities to undergo a rigorous licensing process and conducts routine inspections to ensure a high standard of care for residents. It also fields and investigates complaints related to care quality.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in San Juan Capistrano

 

  • California residents pay some of the highest sales and state income taxes in the nation, which may impact some retirees’ ability to afford assisted living expenses in San Juan Capistrano. While there are no deductions available to reduce what seniors owe in taxes for retirement income, Social Security benefits are exempt for all seniors, which may provide savings to those who rely primarily on this form of income.
  • There are no hospitals in San Juan Capistrano proper, but high-performing facilities, such as Providence Mission Hospital Mission Viejo and Providence Mission Hospital Laguna Beach, are located within 5 miles of the city center. In general, health care costs in San Juan Capistrano come in at 11% below the national norm, giving more seniors access to services such as routine medical and dental care. The city also has 249 doctors per 100,000 residents versus the national rate of 210, and many local assisted living facilities have on-call physicians to meet residents’ needs.
  • San Juan Capistrano’s weather is mild throughout the year, with temperatures ranging from lows of 41 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to highs of 86 at the peak of summer, making the city a favorable option for those who enjoy spending time outdoors. The city gets just 14 inches of rain and virtually no measurable snowfall, and there are few days with noticeable humidity. Many local assisted living facilities have individual climate controls to help residents stay comfortable year-round.
