Got California in mind? Well, brace yourself or your loved one for the time of their lives because there are many benefits to enjoy from staying in assisted living homes in The Golden State. The environment is pretty much conducive, although the high cost of living can be a tad expensive if you're unprepared. Lovely beaches, scenery and a lot of spots to visit are some of the highlights of this state. Further, California assisted living facilities often organize fun trips where you can go sightseeing and socialize with other elderly adults.

Types and Cost of Assisted Living in California

California is a large state with a large number of assisted living facilities, adult daycare and retirement homes in a variety of sizes. The types offered are many but the standard regulations for assisted living in the state of California are as follows:

1. Each room must be large enough for the occupants to move freely and safely with and without equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers.

2. There are no minimum square footage limits for each room for the state. Residents are matched to a room according to need.

Facility care types will also vary. You can find adult day care, which according to state statistics, can be the most affordable option for senior living centers in The Golden State. The only issue is that the caregiver doesn’t live there and the assistance is limited. Then there’s adult foster care, which is typically a private home that can hold up to 2-4 persons and the caregiver lives on site with older adults.

Assisted living is typically the most common options that elderly adults choose in California. Seniors can live there full time and are assisted with everything from ADLs to bathing and so forth. This is typically where they go prior to a skilled nursing facility. Nursing homes include everything an assisted living community in The Golden State includes, but with medically-based care.

The average cost for assisted living communities in California is $4,500 per month. The range is around $3,150 to $5,595 and depends on area and county. For example, Marin County and the San Francisco area are the most expensive, whereas Bakersfield and Madeira are a lot cheaper inland options for assisted living. So, the range for the entire state, due to the size and a grand chasm of socioeconomic scales, will swing wildly between $4,500 and nearly $6,000. This is before any extras, including one big one and that’s California memory care. That could raise the ante from several hundred to a thousand more per month for California assisted living facilities that include memory care units.

Payment Resources for Assisted Living in The Golden State

California has a Medicaid program called Medi-Cal which does not cover assisted living. One of the four Medi-Cal waiver programs does, but the coverage is limited. It is called The Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP). It will cover some assistance services but it does not cover room and board.

Apart from the aforementioned waiver services, it’s a good idea to use as many resources as you can to help offset the high cost of assisted living in California. Some of those options can be long-term care insurance, life insurance and non-profit organizations for senior care. If you were any kind of public servant like firefighter or police, as well as military, you could have additional benefits living in a care facility in California.

California is a rather daunting state to sift through, but the counties and areas are pretty clear in the affordability rate. With some creative and strategic planning, you can make even California affordable for assisted living if your own private benefits are used until state benefits are needed. In-home care ADLs are covered by Medi- Cal and this may be a good place to start. Independence can be encouraged with in-home care and a nursing home stay could be delayed. Therefore, your loved ones can enjoy a more enjoyable life in familiar surroundings, which is also beneficial to their mental health.

Benefits of using an Assisted Living Facility in The Golden State

The weather is a huge factor with many seniors and retirees keen on avoiding winter. But watch it, California can get extremely hot, although the beautiful surroundings and diverse people more than makes up for it. Depending on where you want to live, the southern part of the state is warmer while the Northern part often experiences cooler winters.

Seniors living in The Golden State are exposed to more health-invigorating activities they can take part in, not to mention the obvious bragging rights you have, telling your loved ones you live in California.

Assisted Living and Memory Care in California

Memory care in The Golden State is big. The number of memory care facilities is an evidence of this fact. With seniors who have memory loss disease, dementia or Alzheimer's, a specialized type of long-term care is tailored around their needs. Further, a senior using an assisted living facility in The Golden State is very different from one in a memory care facility. But it's not uncommon to have assisted facilities offering both types of care.

Memory care homes in California help elderly adults with cognitive problems by grooming them and helping them dress. Also, the infrastructure is simple to understand and navigate so that seniors don't get lost. They're also helped with their medications so that they don't harm themselves in any way.

Depending on the location you or a loved one choose, costs of memory care in The Golden State are pretty high. With average costs reaching $65,250 yearly for most areas, you'd best be financially prepared. Some areas cost as high as $100,000 on average for a year thus, making it more expensive than the national average for memory care in the United States.

California is a cool, relaxing and awesome proposition for retirees in The Golden State. But the costs involved provide a sticking point most can't cope with. What's clear though, is that you'll receive value from most, if not all California assisted living facilities.
