Just 14 miles north of San Jose, Palo Alto is a quieter suburban community that sits at the base of the mountains. This city carefully protects its open space, and nearly a third of the community is open space and parkland. Known as the Birthplace of the Silicon Valley, this is a tech-savvy community as well. The city is home to 65,365 people, and 19.4% are aged 65 and older. The pleasant weather and interesting things to do attract many retirees to this community. The Stanford University campus is a popular amenity with many cultural attractions, like the Cantor Arts Center or the Rodin Sculpture Garden.

Because of its location in Silicon Valley, Palo Alto has a high average income and cost of living. Seniors who need assisted living care will find the cost for care is also higher than average. The 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey indicates an average cost of care of $6,100 a month for assisted living. This is much higher than the $4,300 national average and the $5,000 a month average in California.
