High

When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. But public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in California:

Key Findings

  • California has conveniently integrated information about licensed communities and information about violations and inspections results.
  • California has generally transparent assisted living records but was marked down significantly in our rankings because required inspections occur only every five years.
