What to know about assisted living in Riverside

Choosing an assisted living facility requires careful consideration of your or your loved one’s care needs and budget. Plan on touring as many communities as possible to give yourself a variety of options. By seeing a facility in person, you can look at different apartment floor plans, meet staff members and residents, view on-site amenities and taste the food.

As you are visiting, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Licensing: The California Department of Social Services regulates assisted living facilities in the state. Verify a facility’s license and see results from the state’s most recent inspection online.
  • Proximity to a Riverside hospital: Check that a facility is close to a hospital in case of an emergency. Riverside’s hospitals include Riverside Community Hospital, Parkview Community Hospital and Riverside Medical Center.
  • Access to local transportation: Many assisted living communities offer local transportation to residents. For residents living at a facility without transportation services, the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) may be useful. Fares are discounted for adults 60 and over. Buses are wheelchair-accessible. Dial-A-Ride, an advanced reservation transportation service, is also available for older adults and those with disabilities.
  • Security and medical emergency plans: According to NeighborhoodScout, Riverside’s violent and property crime rates are slightly higher than the national medians at the time of publishing. Ask what security measures are in place to prevent crime and what procedures exist in case of a security issue or medical emergency.
  • Planning for natural disasters: Unfortunately, California experiences both earthquakes and wildfires. Make sure each facility you’re considering has emergency response plans for natural disasters.

How much does assisted living cost in Riverside?

In Riverside, the cost of assisted living facilities ranges anywhere from $1,300 to $6,000 per month. The cost of assisted living includes room and board, care services and use of on-site amenities.

The monthly price of assisted living depends on the specific facility, the level of care you need and the living space you choose. Expect to pay more to live at a luxurious facility, to get a higher level of assisted living care or to live in a private or larger-sized apartment.

Most residents of assisted living facilities in Riverside use private funds to pay for residence and care. A small percentage use long-term care insurance. If you have Medi-Cal benefits, you may qualify for the Assisted Living Waiver program.
