10 Best Nursing Homes in Sacramento, CA

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Set your senior loved one up with the best care in Sacramento, known as the Farm-to-Fork Capital and the City of Trees. Whether the senior in your life needs skilled medical care, memory support, daily assistance, or a combination, Sacramento has options. Often, nursing home is the term used to refer to all types of senior living communities. However, nursing homes actually often refer to skilled nursing facilities, which provide a higher level of medical care.

Skilled nursing facilities provide 24/7 medical care and supervision, rehabilitation programs, and highly trained staff such as nurses and doctors. If your loved one doesn’t require this high level of care at this time, an assisted living or memory care community might be a better fit for them. Assisted living communities help seniors with their daily tasks and activities as opposed to round-the-clock skilled medical care. Assisted living facilities with memory care have specialized memory care staff and additional therapies for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. In many cases, these Sacramento communities also offer on-site nursing care services for current residents who grow to need medical care.

This all-inclusive guide to Sacramento senior care was made possible by our 20+ years of senior living market experience and our Sacramento partner communities. A Place for Mom partners with 58 assisted living and memory care communities in a 10-mile radius of east-central Sacramento. We include details that are important to real senior residents and their families, such as care costs and ways that families typically pay. We’ve also included local senior resources, California senior care laws and regulations, and a detailed look into what the senior living market is like in Sacramento.

Beautiful, clean and friendly staff who care about to the residents like they are family. Shared room but a good enough size. The amenities mostly are for the assisted living side. The bathroom is very large and a great size.

Costs of nursing homes in the Sacramento area

Nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities in Sacramento are usually more expensive than other types of senior care. The higher costs are due to 24/7 medical oversight provided by highly trained medical staff.

In 2021, the median monthly cost of a private room in a Sacramento skilled nursing facility was $14,129, compared to $10,646 for a semi-private room.[01] Skilled nursing facility costs can vary by location, amenities, floor plan, and a variety of services.

You can typically expect monthly skilled nursing home costs to include the following services and features:

  • Three meals a day plus snacks
  • Personal care services
  • 24/7 skilled medical care and oversight
  • Senior-specific amenities
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Utilities and maintenance
  • Emergency call systems
  • Transportation
  • Landscaped outdoor common areas
  • Activity programming

After learning more about skilled nursing homes, some families determine that their loved one doesn’t require this high level of 24/7 skilled medical care. If you and your loved one find yourself in this situation, we detail the costs of other senior care types in Sacramento below and in our Sacramento assisted living or Sacramento memory care pages. These senior care types typically cost much less than skilled nursing facilities.

Costs of assisted living and memory care communities in Sacramento

Between 2022 and 2023, the average monthly cost families paid for Sacramento assisted living communities in A Place for Mom’s network was $5,050 and $5,222 for assisted living with memory care. These costs from our proprietary data include personal care services, daily meals, and add-ons like pet rent or elective amenities.[02] In general, you can expect the following features to be included in the monthly cost of Sacramento assisted living and memory care communities:

  • Three meals a day plus snacks
  • Personal care, like assistance with activities of daily living
  • Medication assistance and administration
  • Weekly housekeeping and laundry
  • Maintenance and landscaping
  • Utilities
  • Activity programming
  • Transportation
  • Senior-specific amenities
  • Specialized therapies and programs

How people pay for a nursing home in Sacramento

You and your loved ones have a variety of options to pay for long-term senior care. Seniors can apply for state and federal programs to help cover their nursing home or skilled nursing costs. If assisted living or memory care is a better option for your senior loved one, they may use some of these options as well. The sections below outline how private payment methods, public assistance options, and veterans benefits can help cover the costs of long-term senior care.

Private pay methods in Sacramento

Families paying for long-term senior care can cover the costs by using their own income, such as savings accounts, pensions, Social Security benefits, and investment returns. Depending on a family’s resources, the options below may also help cover senior care costs:

VA benefits for nursing homes in Sacramento

Veterans, or their surviving spouses, over the age of 65 may have access to several veteran-specific benefits that can help cover their senior care costs. CalVet is California’s veteran services program that helps qualifying senior veterans or their surviving spouses enroll in a Veterans Benefit Enhancement Program (or VBE). Seniors with disabilities can use this program to switch from Medi-Cal to VA health care, which is the first step in attaining access to more veterans benefits.

The VA Aid and Attendance benefit is usually the most generous benefit that provides monthly payments to eligible senior veterans or their surviving spouses. If eligible, seniors can use these monthly payments to cover their costs of senior care, housing, and anything that improves their quality of life. However, the veterans benefit application process is often lengthy and challenging, and claims can at first be denied. So, we recommend contacting a veterans benefit advocate before you apply. You can find some of those veteran advocacy programs in Sacramento in the resources section below.

Even if you think you or your loved one may not qualify, begin by contacting a local veterans service officer. Seniors often qualify for more than they think! For further assistance with the benefit application process, you can connect with Sacramento County’s Department of Human Assistance Veterans Services or the local Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) chapters. These groups can advocate for you, help you understand the complex application process, and may even help you appeal denied claims.

Sacramento Medi-Cal for nursing homes

California’s Medicaid program is called Medi-Cal. California residents with low-income status can use Medi-Cal to pay for health care services such as medical appointments, hospital stays, and rehabilitation services. Covered California, the online health care portal for the state’s residents, provides access to Medi-Cal as well as low-cost, full-coverage health care plans.

When medically necessary, the 24/7 medical care of a nursing home or skilled nursing stay is one of Medi-Cal’s mandatory benefits for eligible seniors in Sacramento. If a senior requires this nursing home level of care, Medi-Cal will cover the costs of care in a Medi-Cal-contracted nursing care facility or through a Medi-Cal-contracted home health care agency.[04]

Medi-Cal for in-home health care services

In-home supportive services can include skilled nursing services if they are deemed medically necessary and provided by agencies contracted with Medi-Cal. By accessing these programs, seniors can to continue living in their homes or in an assisted living facility while getting skilled medical care. However, not every assisted living facility is contracted with Medi-Cal. Please check with your prospective senior living facilities to see what on-site care services may be covered by Medi-Cal.

Note: If the facility you’re interested in doesn’t contract with Medi-Cal for their on-site skilled nursing services, seniors can still receive in-home health care services in their residence of choice via Medi-Cal-contracted, third-party home health care agencies.

The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model is an in-home long-term care option available through California’s Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). The PACE model gives seniors the option to receive skilled medical care without moving into a skilled nursing facility. To enroll in the PACE model and receive in-home health care, seniors must meet all of the following requirements:[05]

  • Be at least 55 years of age
  • Live in an area that the PACE model serves
  • Receive confirmation from the DHCS that skilled nursing services are needed
  • Currently live safely within their home or assisted living community
Medi-Cal for assisted living

The Assisted Living Waiver is another option available to Sacramento seniors who are eligible for Medi-Cal. This waiver helps seniors get the care they need in an assisted living facility, removing the need for them to move into an institution like a hospital or a skilled nursing facility. Note that the waiver covers the costs of care services, but it won’t cover the costs of room and board.

About half of A Place for Mom’s partner assisted living and memory care communities can provide on-site skilled nursing care services to current residents. So, if a senior grows to need additional care while living in their current community, moving into a skilled nursing home isn’t the only option. They may be able to receive the services from the comfort of their current community home.

Medi-Cal assistance and resources

Any of the resources below can assist seniors and their families with Medi-Cal applications and senior health concerns. For application assistance, contact the DHCS’ Medi-Cal Rx Member Helpline or Sacramento County’s long-term care ombudsman. For assistance with senior health concerns and information about senior health care, contact Sacramento’s Area 4 Agency on Aging.

Medicare nursing home coverage in Sacramento

Medicare is a federal program that provides health insurance to seniors age 65 and older. The health insurance includes medical insurance, hospital insurance, and prescription medication coverage. Note that because it’s a federal health insurance program, it only covers medically necessary costs.

Medicare consists of the following parts:[06]

  • Medicare Part A serves as hospital insurance. It covers inpatient hospital stays, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Medicare Part B works as medical insurance. It covers certain doctors’ appointments, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.
  • Medicare Part D offers coverage for prescription medications and some shots or vaccines.

Nursing home services in Sacramento — or skilled nursing facilities — may be covered by Medicare for a maximum of 100 days. To receive skilled nursing services covered by Medicare, seniors must have a medical diagnosis and meet each of the following requirements:[07]

  • Be age 65+
  • Receive Part A hospital insurance and have a leftover balance in their benefit period
  • Have an inpatient hospital stay that qualifies for coverage
  • Receive skilled nursing services in a facility certified by Medicare
  • Need skilled nursing services for either a medical condition that was treated during an inpatient hospital stay or that began in a skilled nursing facility
Medicare Savings Programs

Seniors enrolled in Medicare should consider checking if they’re eligible for any Medicare Savings Programs, as these may cover part of their Medicare premiums. California has four different Medicare Savings Programs that cover either individual Medicare parts or a combination of several.

Seniors who are enrolled in Medicare and meet low-income requirements can apply for Medicare Savings Programs online. Before applying, we recommend that seniors seek assistance with the application process to ensure they’re applying for and receiving all their eligible benefits.

Medicare benefit assistance

For help with Medicare benefits and Medicare Savings Programs, contact the city’s Social Security Administration office. You can also reach out to your county’s long-term care ombudsman, who will advocate for your loved one’s access to senior care.

In addition, the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (or HICAP) is a program in California that walks seniors and their families through the Medicare program. Using the city’s phone number for 2-1-1 Sacramento and contacting the city’s Area 4 Agency on Aging are other great ways to learn about local health care services and service programs for seniors.

Understand California laws and regulations for nursing homes

Sacramento nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities need to be licensed by the California Department of Public Health (or CDPH). The list below includes several services that skilled nursing home facilities in California must provide:[08]

  • Physician services
  • Skilled nursing services
  • Dietary services
  • Pharmaceutical services
  • Activity programming
  • Arranged transportation to services that can’t be provided on-site
  • A plan for emergency medical care if the on-site physician isn’t present

Skilled nursing home facilities in California must also follow several requirements for their caregiving staff and resident living spaces:[08]

  • Enough nursing staff must be present so that each resident gets at least three hours of services each day.
  • All staff members need to participate in continuing education on safety and care procedures.
  • Each facility is licensed for a different number of residents and beds, and facilities must not exceed these numbers.
  • Each room must have a bed, table, chair, and space to keep the resident’s belongings.

When a skilled nursing home facility accepts Medi-Cal or Medicare, it also has to be regulated by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (also known as CMS). CMS has the right to approve or deny a facility’s state-level certification.[09]

Assisted living and memory care laws and regulations

We’ve included this section on California’s assisted living and memory care laws and regulations in case a nursing home or skilled nursing facility isn’t right for your senior loved one.

The California Department of Social Services (or CDSS) is responsible for licensing assisted living and memory care communities in Sacramento. Each senior must be assessed prior to moving in, sometimes involving interviews and a review of the senior’s health records. Assisted living and memory care communities must also follow these additional requirements:[10]

  • House a maximum of two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms have enough room to accommodate equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common rooms for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills
Facility inspections and reports

Skilled nursing home facilities are inspected annually by the Licensing and Certification Division of the CDPH.[11] The CDPH Center for Health Care Quality (or CHCQ) has an online dashboard that allows you to search by facility name or type and allows the county to find skilled nursing home facility violations. Assisted living and memory care facilities are inspected by the California Department of Social Services (or CDSS) once a year and within 10 days of a complaint.[10]

Inspection reports and a list of licensed senior care facilities can be found in the CDSS Care Facility Search. Scroll to “Search By Facility Group,” choose “Elderly Assisted Living,” choose the “Facility Type” and “Sacramento County,” and then click on the search button. You can also search by community name or address.

COVID-19 regulations for Sacramento nursing homes

Sacramento County has guidelines for the general public regarding isolation and quarantine in their updated COVID-19 guidance document to prevent the spread of COVID-19. There is currently no mask mandate in effect. View Sacramento County’s website to remain updated on guidelines.

Aside from the general public standards, Sacramento skilled nursing facilities must follow additional COVID-19 guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These guidelines are specific to health care settings and include the following:[12]

What to expect from senior care in Sacramento

Seniors are sure to be set up with their ideal community in Sacramento through one of our many partner communities. Whether seniors need skilled nursing care, assisted living, or memory care, A Place for Mom’s network in Sacramento has options. There are also quite a few communities that offer multiple care types in this area, enabling seniors to comfortably age in place even if their care needs evolve.

Sacramento nursing homes and senior care facilities

Sacramento nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities have highly trained medical caregivers, like doctors and nurses, who provide 24/7 supervision and medical care. Some skilled nursing home facilities in Sacramento also coordinate rehabilitation services for residents who need to recover from a surgery or an illness.

Seniors who wish to age in place can still receive skilled nursing care in 48% of our partner Sacramento assisted living and memory care communities. Though these facilities don’t initially admit someone in need of skilled medical care, they may provide access to such services if a current resident grows to need these services for rehabilitation or hospice. This means a senior must already be accepted into the assisted living community before requiring skilled nursing care.

If your loved one doesn’t require 24/7 medical observation or rehabilitation services at this time, a skilled nursing facility may not be the right choice. Consider looking into assisted living communities that can provide levels of care more suitable for your senior loved one’s current needs.

Sacramento assisted living

Sacramento assisted living communities range from intimate residential homes to larger facilities with multiple care types, enabling seniors and their families to choose a home that fits their unique needs and preferences. Whether it’s an apartment-style community or a residential, homelike setting, Sacramento assisted living communities provide a meaningful and enriching retirement experience.

Over half of the assisted living communities in A Place for Mom’s Sacramento network are considered residential care homes. Also known as senior board and care homes, these familial settings are usually larger residential homes with single or shared rooms for residents. These homes accommodate smaller numbers of seniors, where everyone lives like roommates, sharing common areas of the house.

Sacramento’s residential care homes offer standard assisted living services and amenities, like daily assistance and meals, housekeeping services, transportation, and cozy spaces for residents to share. In addition, approximately 54% of these Sacramento communities in A Place for Mom’s network can provide on-site skilled nursing services. This means seniors can still access skilled medical care if they ever need it at the assisted living community of their choice.

Sacramento memory care

Memory care for seniors in Sacramento often takes place in residential group homes or in larger assisted living communities that also provide memory care services.  In addition, 58% of the memory care communities in A Place for Mom’s Sacramento network have on-site skilled nursing services. This means that the majority of communities in our network have the capacity to care for seniors if their health needs advance. The availability of these services on-site removes the need for relocation.

Seniors in Sacramento memory care communities spend each day with caregivers trained in memory care. These caregivers, in addition to the security measures and 24/7 supervision, help seniors enjoy all of the community’s senior-specific amenities to the fullest. Daily meals in both indoor and outdoor dining areas, strolls through enclosed courtyards and resident gardens, and cozy libraries are common features in several of our Sacramento partner memory care communities. Other opportunities for self-care and social engagement include on-site movie theaters, salons, and barbershops — all within a secure community designed to meet each senior’s needs.
