Assisted Living Facilities near San Diego, California

The golden years shine brighter in the Golden State, especially in the San Diego area. Discover everything San Diego, CA, has to offer when it comes to assisted living facility options. When it’s time to slow down, check out the City in Motion, which is home to luxury beachside living and nearby to quiet and cozy assisted living options.

The cost of assisted living facilities in San Diego, CA

Assisted living communities can provide the peace of mind that comes from not worrying about home maintenance, chores, or errands, as well as help with personal care like grooming, eating, and other activities of daily living (ADLs) seniors might have trouble with. Keep in mind as you start your search for assisted living facilities that some cities (particularly those where the cost of living is high) will be more expensive than others. The average monthly cost of assisted living in San Diego is $5,792.

Assisted living isn’t the right option for everyone, however, and with terms like “retirement home” and “nursing home” clouding your search, knowing what is most appropriate can be difficult. For example, if your loved one requires nursing care, or has diagnosed Alzheimer's or dementia that has progressed to a certain point, a skilled nursing facility, in-home care, or memory care community may be more appropriate. Conversely, those who don’t require day-to-day assistance with ADLs may find independent living more comfortable. Our local advisors can provide expert advice on what you can afford and whether or not your city of interest is right for your needs and budget.
