    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Santee

    The town of Santee, California lies just beyond the borders of San Diego and offers a refreshing atmosphere for seniors looking into assisted living, which the state of California calls Residental Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE). Santee provides six local RCFEs and there are 54 more nearby from which seniors can choose. 

    Each community is regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. It is tasked with assisting seniors with activities of daily living and carefully monitoring their health and safety. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Santee

    • Residents in Santee face a higher cost of living versus the national average by 49 percent. The town is higher in every expense category including health and grocery, and seniors on a limited budget may want to consider this.

    • Residents enjoy a low violent and property crime rate in Santee, with both statistics being lower than the state and national average. Santee is safer than 39 percent of U.S. cities.

    • The Santee area has mild year-round weather, with the average temperature hovering between 55 to 72 degrees. Warm winters and cool summers provide a comfortable environment for seniors who suffer increased chronic pain from extreme climate changes.

    • The Santee area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Sharp Grossmont Hospital and the Alvarado Hospital Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses.

    • The city of Santee has some of the worse air quality in the nation and is ranked sixth worse for ozone by the American Lung Association. Seniors with respiratory issues may want to consider this before moving here.

    • Santee, part of San Diego County, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership "has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages," according to AARP.
