What to know about assisted living in Sacramento

If you’re trying to decide whether or not Sacramento is a good place for assisted living, there are a few things worth considering:

  • Sacramento’s medical facilities: Sacramento is home to multiple hospital systems, including UC Davis Medical Center, Sutter Health, Mercy General Hospital and Kaiser Permanente. Each hospital serves the needs of older Californians.
  • Sacramento’s public transit: The Sacramento Regional Transit District oversees public transportation in the city, which includes buses, light rail trains, rideshare microtransit services and community bus services. Adults over 62 years old receive discounted fares and passes, and Sacramento’s public transit is accessible to people with disabilities. For longer distances, Amtrak runs between Sacramento and the Bay Area.
  • Sacramento’s weather: Sacramento experiences hot, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. Snow is rare, so, if you or your loved one likes warm weather, Sacramento is a good place for you.
  • California’s tax laws: While California does not tax Social Security income, it does fully tax withdrawals from retirement savings and pensions. California’s sales tax is 7.25% (excluding local sales tax), which is high compared to other states.
  • California’s regulations: The California Department of Social Security monitors assisted living facilities to protect residents from scams or unsafe environments.

How much does assisted living cost in Sacramento?

The average cost of assisted living facilities in Sacramento ranges from $3,000 - $5,200 per month. Monthly rates typically cover rent and services, which are either combined in an all-inclusive price package or offered a la carte. Many assisted living communities in Sacramento also charge an entrance fee, a one-time expense that you can sometimes pay incrementally.

The level of assistance you or your loved one needs influences the cost of assisted living, but the biggest pricing factor you can control is access to amenities. Common services and amenities include:

Some communities offer pay-as-you-go pricing for amenities, and some allow residents to opt-out of certain services to save money. You can sometimes find specials and discounts to help pay for assisted living. Ask about move-in discounts, such as reduced entrance fees, and other potential savings. Veterans and low-income residents may be able to find financial assistance or discounts from local facilities and nonprofits.
