Situated slightly southeast of California’s capital city, Sacramento, Davis is home to the University of California, Davis, and is known for its bicycle-friendly culture and infrastructure. Adults age 65 and over make up approximately 12.6% of the overall population of Davis. Although this is slightly around 4 percentage points less than the national average of 16.8%, the percentage is likely affected by the amount of college students living in the area. 

Davis offers a comfortable climate with plenty of sun and mild winters with limited rainfall amounts and no snow, making it a great place for retirees who appreciate being able to enjoy outdoor activities on a year-round basis and who would prefer to avoid having to navigate snow and ice.

According to Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, residents of assisted living facilities pay an average monthly cost of $4,950. Although this is nearly $500 per month higher than the national monthly average of $4,500, it’s $300 less than California’s overall average of $5,250.

Carlton Senior Living Davis

This family-founded facility provides a homelike environment where residents receive, fresh, delicious meals prepared from scratch using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, a range of social activities and events to choose from and assistance with everyday household tasks. We liked the sparkling fountain in the courtyard surrounded by comfortable chairs and tables where residents can relax with their choice of reading material to get a few minutes rest after exercising their small pets or join their peers for regularly scheduled live entertainment.

Sunrise of Sacramento

We liked the level of detail we saw in this facility's individualized Service Plans, which included thoughtful touches such as bringing a resident a glass of wine after dinner or making sure the resident has a newspaper available to read during morning coffee. Residents also receive customized nonclinical care, such as assistance with dressing, bathing or showering and routine grooming tasks. Each suite is equipped with emergency call systems and furnishings that are designed to promote mobility.

Oakmont of East Sacramento

We included this community on our list for its talented culinary staff that can accommodate individual dietary needs and preferences. Along with low-fat and low-salt diets typically available in assisted living communities, the kitchen staff at Oakmont prepares diabetic, heart-healthy, renal and vegetarian fare. Residents also receive a complimentary glass of wine or beer with their meal. Another reason we included this facility on our top 10 list is because it has its own on-site dog park where residents' pets can frolic and run around off-leash.

The Village at Heritage Park

The Village at Heritage Park welcomes all pets, making it a good choice for those whose furry friends don't fit the typical size, weight and breed limits that most facilities impose. We also like the facility's trademark Montessori-inspired SPARK program, which promotes independence and engagement and utilizes special assessment tools and cutting-edge technology to create hyper-customized care plans. The entire facility is ADA-accessible, and all units and common areas are spacious and well-designed.

We think Regency Place is a great option for seniors seeking to live in a faith-based environment. The on-site pastor conducts regular Sunday services and leads a Bible study group during the week. Catholic Communion is available every Thursday. Other on-site activities include Friday happy hours, movie nights, morning and afternoon walks, group outings to local shopping and attractions and fitness sessions.
