Assisted Living in Los Angeles

Assisted living facilities in Los Angeles are called Adult Residential Facilities. The Genworth 2017 Survey of Assisted Living Costs shows the following: 

  • National Average: $45,000
  • California State Median: Private 1-bedroom: $51,300/annually and 5 year annual growth at 4%. 
  • Los Angeles: Private 1-bedroom: $53,820/annually

Adult Day Healthcare is an economic option worth considering since Genworth shows that cost for 5 days a week to be $19,760/annually.  This option gives caregivers a much needed break. 

The dry Mediterranean-type climate is great for seniors and the healthful produce found at outdoor farmer's markets like the one in Hollywood is abundant.  I lived in Los Angeles for two years and the access to colleges, medical centers, shopping and dining is outstanding.  It is a highly populated and congested area but walking the towns, beaches and parks was great.

The Santa Monica area around Los Angeles has an excellent transportation system.

Other Options for Care

If you are interested in one of the numerous small licensed facilities, please check out the government list of adult residential facilities as they are too numerous to list here.

There are also some licensed Adult Day Care Centers in the Los Angeles area designed to give caregivers a much needed break.

If your loved one qualifies for nursing home care, there are PACE programs in the Los Angeles area also. Instead of going to a nursing home, your loved one can stay at home with the services of the PACE program.
