Conveniently situated south of San Jose in California’s iconic Silicon Valley, Gilroy is close to a number of community amenities and attractions. It is the southernmost city in the Bay Area and is known for its garlic crop and the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival. Gilroy has a Mediterranean climate, which means it experiences warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. This type of climate can be appealing for those who want to avoid extreme temperatures. Approximately 11.7% of Gilroy’s overall population of slightly more than 58,000 citizens are aged 65 and over. 

Hospitals and medical centers in Gilroy include Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and Saint Louise Regional Hospital. The average cost of assisted living in Gilroy is $6,000 per month, although individual facilities may vary in cost due to the quality of their amenities and services and their location within the community. Assisted living in Gilroy is more expensive than both the national average ($4,500) and the statewide average ($5,250).

Aegis Living Aptos

We included Aegis Living Aptos on our top 10 list primarily because of the range of on-site medical services available to residents. In-house primary care, geriatric psychiatrists, occupational and physical therapy, and an on-site provide residents with easy access to these essential services. An on-site lab is available for blood work and other types of testing. Although all seniors are welcome here, Aegis is an Asian-inspired community which serves authentic Asian cuisine and features traditional activities and decor.

Carlton Senior Living San Jose

Even though Carton Senior Living is one of the larger facilities on our top 10 list with a resident capacity of 183, the staff at its restaurant-style dining room is able to happily accommodate a range of dietary needs and preferences, including diabetic and renal diets. The culinary staff uses fresh, locally-sourced ingredients as much as possible and prepares nearly everything from scratch, and residents have the option of dining in their apartments instead of joining others in the dining room. The facility also has a 24-hour cafe.

Atria Almaden

The quality of the accommodations play a big part in how we make selections for our top 10 list, and Atria Almaden definitely impressed us that way. Amenities of the spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom units include full kitchens with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances and European cabinets equipped with soft-close hinges. Each unit also has a walk-in shower and its own washer and dryer. For those who enjoy spending time outdoors, there are walking trails where residents can enjoy with their small pets, a bocce court and picnic/barbecue areas with plenty of comfortable seating.

Belmont Village Senior Living Los Gatos

This facility's resort-style ambiance reminded us of a comfortable vacation destination rather than an assisted living facility. The restaurant-style dining room features over 24 chef-prepared menu items each day, and a bistro is available for beverages and snacks. There is a full-service salon where residents can get their hair and nails done, and the full calendar of activities includes group excursions to community events and attractions, tai chi, arts and crafts, gardening and yoga.

Palm Villas Campbell

We liked the culinary philosophy we encountered at Palm Villas Campbell that allows residents to request their favorite dishes even if they aren't on the menu. The kitchen staff creates special menus for those with dietary restrictions or needs, and the regular menu changes every month. A full range of personal services is provided, and residents are assessed on a regular basis to accommodate changing needs and preferences.
