Independent Living in California

Individuals searching for independent living communities and retirement communities in California have a wide range of options to choose from. Independent living communities offer senior living options for aging California residents searching for a change in housing. In California, these facilities are located throughout the state from Southern California to Northern California, with many located around cities like San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The average cost of independent living in California varies monthly from $2500 to $4000, though this cost varies based on the location of the community, the type of unit or apartment, and the facility's services. Facilities may charge extra on top of the cost of monthly rent for additional services and amenities, and prospective residents should account for these costs when deciding on an independent living community.


Why Independent Living?

In general, independent living communities balance the independence of individuals living in them with necessary care services. These services may include personal care assistance for seniors and individuals living with disabilities, facility maintenance, or meal preparation services among others. The amenities and community resources offered at each location in the state vary, but all facilities are centered around the independence of their residents as they continue daily routines and activities. Some sites may offer social activities like exercise classes or special events for their residents, while others may offer specialized treatment and care programs for individuals with disabilities or memory loss. Independent living facilities can include assisted living components, but not all independent living facilities are considered assisted living facilities; they may not offer the same specialization of staff members or ratio of staff members to residents.
