Chico, California

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the chance to live an independent lifestyle while assuring their basic needs have been met. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care professionalls, they may always do so. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the plan: Waiting list deposit, meals, utilities, laundry, initial assessment fee, cable TV, housekeeping, and internet access. The benefits that pertain to independent living include golf course, transportation, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, laundry service, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, and game/TV room.

Cost of Living

The location in which a senior care community is located will have a large effect on the overall price. Cost of living can be a motivating factor in deciding which location is the best fit for your loved one. The rent burden for Chico is around 19.5% of the average monthly income. Chico has a median home value of $285,033 and the median cost of rent is $1,250 per month.

Demographics and Values

Out of the total city population, 50.9% are female and 49.1% are male. The median age of Chico is 30 years old. Chico has a population density of 1,076 people per square mile.
