We have seen this happen in the caregiving and assisted living space. Caregivers have started to receive higher wages, and for care communities to stay in business, they have to pass that along to the consumer.

In 2022, this will result in higher rent costs for people who move into an Assisted Living community or a care home. If you are at all interested in finding a care home or assisted living community, I would say you have a one-month opportunity to secure a place for your loved one before prices go up.

Give me a call, and I can get you started with a tour and help you make the right choice based on what your loved one needs. My placement services are free, and I can really help with this process.

San Luis Obispo Caregivers was created in memory of my Grandfather, Tracy Gordon Wood II. My mission is to honor him by providing trustworthy, compassionate, and competitively priced caregiving services to seniors in my community. After 25 years in the financial industry and the decision to leave behind a successful 6-year position as the Chief Operating Officer of SESLOC Federal Credit Union, I created San Luis Obispo Home Care. This decision served my desire to make a difference and support the growing needs of seniors in my community. As my business grew and I leaned heavily on my financial background, I realized there was a much more cost-effective way to provide seniors with the care they deserve. This realization led to the creation of San Luis Obispo Caregivers, a referral agency and SLO Senior Placement, a free resource for families looking for independent or assisted living options for seniors. Ultimately, I listen, assess your situation and recommend various options that are available for your family.
