What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ventura

The coastal city of Ventura, whose official name is "San Buenaventura," has a population of a little over 110,000 residents, 15 percent of whom are over the age of 65. To support the aging population, the region has 59 assisted living facilities. Fifteen of these facilities are in Ventura and 44 more are located outside of the city. 

In California, assisted living facilities are officially called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) and are licensed through the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ventura

  • Ventura rates 86 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index, indicating that the city has a comfortable climate throughout the year. Summer highs are a mild 76 degrees Fahrenheit and winter lows drop only to the mid-40s, providing an ideal climate for seniors who enjoy being outdoors.  

  • Ventura has a high cost of living, which may be a concern for budget-conscious seniors. While the cost of groceries is on par with the national average, healthcare costs and transportation expenses run about 5 percent higher than elsewhere in the country.   

  • California has some of the highest sales tax rates in the nation. The combined sales tax rate in Ventura is 7.75 percent, which may be a consideration for seniors on a tight budget. However, seniors do not pay a tax on Social Security benefits, which may offset the high sales tax.
