Grass Valley, CA, is a Nevada County city located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. It’s an old mining town that may appeal to history enthusiasts and those who love the outdoors, as there are numerous museums and stunning views across the surrounding landscape. Seniors comprise just over 30% of Grass Valley’s roughly 14,000 residents, which is almost double the national average.
Grass Valley’s average cost of living index of 126.2 is low by California’s standards. Winter temperatures average a chilly 34 degrees, while July’s average a pleasant 89 degrees. The primary medical facility is the well-respected Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, which is only minutes from most homes because of the city’s low population density.
Based on 44 hours of care per month, the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey reveals that Grass Valley’s median fee is $4,658. Although this is above the national average of $4,500, it’s significantly below California’s $5,250. Nearby cities are often costlier, including Chico ($5,106) and Sacramento ($5,225), although Reno, NV, is more affordable at $4,250.
