  • Spent over 30 hours researching assisted living communities in Sacramento
  • Interviewed 16 facility staff members

After filtering out facilities that didn’t meet our high standards, we were left with 20 assisted living communities that earned our seal of approval. Through this process we discovered that the average cost of assisted living in the city of Sacramento is $4,500, which is the same as the state average of $4,500 and higher than the national average of $4,051.
