Assisted Living Costs in San Joaquin County

Senior living costs vary throughout the country, and those costs are documented in Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study. In San Joaquin County, assisted living is $500 less than the national and $1,000 less than the state averages. To the north, costs are $973 higher in Sacramento, while prices are $300 less to the south of San Joaquin County in Modesto. To the west, prices are significantly higher in places near the Pacific coast, such as San Francisco ($5,500), San Jose ($5,500) and Napa ($5,425). 

Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for San Joaquin County, so data for Stockton, the county seat, was used. 

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

As with other areas, senior care costs in San Joaquin County vary depending on the type of care provided and the number of service hours per week. Nursing home care costs more than double that of assisted living, while 44 hours of weekly homemaker or home health aide services are $1,457 more than assisted living. The least expensive senior care option is adult day health service, also known as adult day care. 

When weighing the total monthly price of senior care, it’s important to remember that residential care services, including assisted living, cover day-to-day living expenses such as utilities, accommodation and home maintenance. 

Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in San Joaquin County

Medicaid in California

Medicaid was established by the federal government in 1965 to provide free or low-cost limited health services to low-income Americans. In California, Medicaid is known as Medi-Cal, and as a Medicaid-expansion state, it covers one in four residents through funding provided by both the state and federal governments.

California seniors who qualify for federal Supplemental Security Income benefits are automatically registered in Medi-Cal; they only need to complete additional screening if requesting Medi-Cal-funded long-term care services. 

All other seniors 65 and older who earn less than $1,242 per month ($1,682 per couple) and own less than $2,000 in countable assets ($3,000 per couple) may also qualify for no-cost Medi-Cal coverage. Some assets are exempt, including a non-revocable burial trust worth up to $1,500 and a home that is the principal residence of the applicant.

Unlike other states that limit the value of the exempt home, California doesn’t place an upper limit on the appraised value of the applicant’s principal residence due to the exceptionally high home values in the state. 

Medi-Cal Share of Cost

Seniors with income in excess of Medi-Cal limits have the option to spend down that income to qualify for coverage on a Share of Cost basis. Under a SoC agreement, seniors must spend a predetermined amount on their medical expenses monthly, after which Medi-Cal coverage becomes active for the remainder of the month. 

For more information on Medi-Cal and the SoC program, contact Covered California at (800) 300-1506 or the Human Services Agency of San Joaquin County at (209) 468-1000. 

Assisted Living Waiver

San Joaquin seniors who have free, full-scope Medi-Cal coverage and meet the Medi-Cal criteria for nursing home placement may qualify for enrollment in the Assisted Living waiver program. This Home and Community-Based Medicaid waiver provides eligible seniors and adults with a disability with medically necessary supports, so they can remain in their community in an assisted living facility. 

A registered nurse completes ALW screening through the area Care Coordination Agency. Once accepted, seniors may be placed on a waiting list for one of the ALW program’s participating facilities in San Joaquin County. 

For more information on the ALW, contact Home and Health Care Management, the San Joaquin CCA, at (530) 343-0727.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplementation

Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income benefits and need to reside in an assisted living facility due to a disability or age-related deterioration may be eligible for additional state funding through the Optional State Supplementation program

Under the OSS, seniors can receive up to $1,194.37 per month ($42,338.74 for a couple) in combined federal SSI/state OSS payments to help pay for the room-and-board portion of their assisted living costs. Note that the OSS rate is linked to the federal SSI rates and, therefore, subject to change annually. 

For more information on the California OSS program, contact the Stockton Social Security office at (800) 772-1213. 

Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

San Joaquin County seniors aged 55 and older who have no-cost Medi-Cal coverage or both Medicare and Medi-Cal (dual-enrolled) and meet the eligibility guidelines for nursing home placement may qualify for the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Seniors who don’t meet the financial requirements for Medi-Cal coverage may also be able to enroll in PACE on a private-pay basis. 

PACE is a multidisciplinary, community-based model of senior care that helps the elderly age in place within their own home or an independent living setting. Seniors receive comprehensive, personalized medical and support services, including medication, medical equipment, skilled nursing and primary care needed to help them remain independent and safe. 

PACE services are based at the PACE day health center, and the program includes accessible, door-to-door transportation to and from the center. Seniors receive a personalized case management plan that identifies which services they need to manage acute and chronic health issues, prevent social isolation and promote wellness. 

PACE enrollees may also receive in-home supports such as a homemaker or home health aide, meal delivery or minor home modifications to improve safety and accessibility. Hospitalization, urgent care and rehabilitation services are also included. 

Note that once a senior enrolls in PACE, all of their Medi-Cal-funded services must be delivered through PACE-affiliated providers. PACE enrollees are free to leave the program and resume enrollment in regular Medi-Cal services at any time. 

For more information and to apply to Stockton PACE, the San Joaquin County PACE program, call (209) 442-6077.
