What to Consider About Assisted Living in San Ramon

The California Senior Care Licensing Program is a branch of California’s Department of Social Services (CDSS) consisting of 14 regional offices that govern and regulate senior living facilities throughout the state. These offices are responsible for issuing/revoking licenses, overseeing operations and enforcing policy. The program’s website features a database of all licensed senior living communities in the state.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in San Ramon

  • Using a number-based cost rating system, with 100 representing the national average, the overall cost of living in San Ramon rates 250.9, which is more than 2.5 times higher than the average U.S. cost of living. Housing and transportation are the two cost factors that contribute the most to San Ramon’s high living costs. Seniors opting to reside in assisted living communities may be able to lower these living costs significantly, since these facilities and services are typically included with residency. 
  • The weather in San Ramon stays relatively comfortable, with 256 days of sunshine throughout the year. The area receives no snowfall and gets an average of only 19 inches of rain annually. Summer highs average 84.4°F and winter lows average 39.2°F, so temperatures rarely freeze or get extremely hot. June, September and October are considered the most pleasant months. 
  • According to published crime rates, San Ramon is considered a very safe city to live. On a scale of zero to 100 (zero = crime free, 100 = extremely high crime levels), San Ramon scores 8.4 in violent crime and 19.2 in property crime. These rates are very impressive, considering the average U.S. national crime rates are 22.7 for violent crime and 35.4 for property crime. San Ramon’s crime rates are significantly lower than rates in nearby San Francisco, where violent crime is rated at 39.6 and property crime at 79.2. 
  • The area in and around San Ramon has over 10 hospitals, urgent care and surgery centers within a 20-mile radius, including San Ramon Regional and Stanford Health Tri-Valley. While the local medical care facilities offer convenience for check-ups and fast access in emergency situations, some of the nation’s top hospitals and specialists are only 40 miles away in San Francisco. 
  • San Ramon City government operates community facilities, gyms, three theaters and over 50 recreational parks. Each park offers its own distinct environment, and amenities vary from park to park. Aquatic facilities, tennis courts and picnic areas are just a few park features residents can enjoy.
