Sacramento is more than just the seat of government in the state of California. Often overlooked for posh Los Angeles or trendy San Francisco, Sacramento is emerging as a cultural goldmine nestled inland from California's coastline. Sacramento has a booming craft brew industry, an increasing number of cultural attractions, and has seen a revival of its core downtown blocks with the new Downtown Commons. Here, you'll find shopping, dining, and entertainment equal to California's other major metro areas. Most importantly, you'll find a growing number of luxury senior living communities in Sacramento.

Sacramento’s luxury senior living communities offer the same basic services and amenities you'd find at other senior living properties. The difference between luxury senior living and other facilities is that added touch that makes life more convenient and comfortable each day. From on-demand car services to luxury spas onsite, you'll find greater attention to detail in this type of Sacramento senior living community. Below is a list of the seven best luxury senior communities in the city with the unique insight of our Seniorly-approved, local senior living expert, Mark Wolff, whose exclusive input can help you select the property that meets your lifestyle and living preferences.
