Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Salinas, CA
Sunrise of Monterey
4.8

We chose Sunrise of Monterey because I liked the proximity to her old home as well as her doctors offices and when I walked in it had a very warm, homey feel to it. The room sizes are pretty good, my mom has a studio and it has a view of the park and the pine trees. Some rooms have a view of the bay as well. It has a very roomy bathroom and roomy shower. The friendliness of the staff overall was great and they were so on top of safety during the pandemic. I would recommend them to others looking.

Whispering Pines Inn, LLC in Hollister, CA
5.0

Whispering Pines Inn has devotedly served the San Benito County for over 26 years. The management & staffs are caring & very responsive to their elderly residents. Being a caregiver is not an easy task. You have to have the heary & compassion which I have seen with the employees as well ad the owners who are there even on weekends. They are hands on in all they do!

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
