What to Consider About Assisted Living in San Luis Obispo

Located on the Central Coast between Los Angeles and San Francisco, the city of San Luis Obispo has a population of 46,716. In San Luis Obispo, as in the rest of California, assisted living facilities are called residental care facilities for the elderly (RCF). There are seven RCFs in San Luis Obispo and 38 nearby.  Each helps seniors with personal care and activities of daily living and is regulated and licensed by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD). 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in San Luis Obispo

  • San Luis Obispo seniors should be cautious about going outdoors when there are unhealthy air quality levels reported by the Air Quality Index. This is common during fall and spring months. Due to the town's high particle pollution, it was ranked 13th worse in the nation by the American Lung Association (ALA).

  • The cost of living in California is 52 percent higher than the national median, while the city of San Luis Obispo has an 83 percent higher one. This is inflated mainly due to housing costs, with other living expenses remaining relatively average. Seniors pay 2.8 percent less on health bills and 12.7 percent less on groceries than those in neighboring cities, which could help those on a limited income in California.
  • San Luis Obispo is only considered safer than 4 percent of other communities in California. Seniors may want to consider the 27.75 percent higher violent crime rates compared to the national average before moving here if security is an issue.

  • Seniors enjoy the relatively mild year-round weather in the San Luis Obispo area that allows for more outdoor activity than others in the nation. The hottest month, September, averages 65 degrees while the coldest month, December, averages 52 degrees.

  • The San Luis Obispo area has an array of community resources for seniors, including the San Luis Obispo Senior Center, an organization that provides clubs, senior services and outdoor activities at the local senior center.

  • Seniors enjoy the discounts on the abundant transportation options available in San Luis Obispo, including the Morro Bay Transit, Paso Express, SLO Transit, South County Transit (SCT) and Regional Transit Authority.
