What to Consider About Assisted Living in Union City

Assisted living providers in California fall under the governing authority of the Department of Social Services’ Community Care Licensing Division.

Its regulatory scope includes staffing levels, resident satisfaction, fairness of billing practices and prevention of elder neglect and abuse within these residences.

  • Alameda County, where Union City sits, is part of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, showing its commitment to creating a senior-friendly environment. This includes implementing policies that improve access to transportation and promote opportunities for social participation, which can help enhance the quality of life for older residents.

 

  • A variety of factors, including access to medical providers and levels of environmental pollution, contribute to Alameda County’s ranking among the top 15 healthiest counties in California.
