We developed a proprietary recommendation system that orders Los Angeles community options based on factors we know are important to seniors and their families:

  • Proximity to your search location
  • Availability of recent, high-quality reviews
  • The amount of detailed community information available

Where we source our information

14,000+ communities

We collect proprietary data from our network of 14,000+ senior living communities in the U.S., with regular refreshes of data and information

350,000+ reviews

We have 387,000+ reviews from senior living residents and family members that provide first-hand accounts about senior living communities

Read our full methodology

Costs of assisted living in the Los Angeles area

In Los Angeles, the average cost of assisted living is $6,300 per month, according to A Place for Mom’s proprietary data.[01] This is the average cost of what families paid between 2023-2024 for assisted living communities within our partner network. Therefore, the price is subject to change.

The amount you pay may vary depending on the floor plan, location, required level of care, and amenities offered. Typically, this average monthly cost includes rent, utilities, and additional add-on services and amenities, such as the following:

  • Personal care services, such as assistance with daily living activities
  • Three meals a day
  • Weekly housekeeping and laundry
  • Maintenance and landscaping
  • Security systems
  • Scheduled transportation
  • Pet rent
  • Organized activities and programs, such as fitness classes or interest clubs
  • On-site amenities, including fitness centers, libraries, swimming pools, and more

How inflation has impacted the cost of assisted living in Los Angeles

Over the last few years, the cost of assisted living in Los Angeles has increased due to inflation. In 2021, the cost of assisted living was about $5,250 in the Los Angeles area.[02] Costs have grown by 18% to $6,300 in 2024, according to our proprietary data. The increasing rate is due to the number of seniors who need assisted living, the increased cost of providing quality care, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To help you compare costs near and around Los Angeles, the figures below represent the average monthly starting costs for assisted living in the area. Unlike the costs mentioned above, starting costs may not always reflect the complete cost of care and additional fees.

VA benefits for assisted living in Los Angeles
0

Number of veterans living in Los Angeles as of 2022

About 53% of Los Angeles veterans are 65+

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers several benefits and programs designed for veteran seniors who live in a Los Angeles assisted living facility. Veterans also have access to a variety of local resources to help them save money.

Furthermore, A Place for Mom has joined forces with USAA to help veterans find and fund their senior living. Our advisors have also helped families secure more than $8 million annually in VA benefits.

Veteran support for Los Angeles seniors

Los Angeles County is home to Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB), making it popular among military retirees. The county is home to almost 200,000 retirees and is known for offering many military resources — like the Los Angeles AFB Exchange and the Commissary. These resources help veterans save money on essentials like groceries, clothing, and more.

The city is also home to West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, where veterans can get specialized health care for their unique needs. Qualifying senior veterans and their spouses can use CalVet — California’s veteran services program — to enroll in a Veterans Benefit Enhancement Program (VBE). A VBE Program enables seniors to transition from California’s Medicaid program to VA health care. Switching to VA health care offers seniors with disabilities even more opportunities to access VA living assistance benefits.

Veterans benefits to pay for Los Angeles assisted living

Veterans and their spouses may qualify for a number of benefits. The VA’s Aid and Attendance benefit is especially helpful for senior veterans as it’s very generous and can be added to any existing VA Pension. These monthly payments can be used to cover assisted living costs or anything that improves a veteran’s quality of life.

Qualifying and applying for veterans benefits

If you’re unsure about your VA benefits eligibility or need help with the application process, we recommend connecting with a local expert. You can use CalVet’s service provider search to find a local veterans services office (VSO) in Los Angeles County or find a list of Los Angeles VSOs below. You can also reach out to the local VA office to speak to an expert who can connect you to the most relevant veterans support services — including the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing.

Los Angeles Medi-Cal coverage for assisted living

Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid program for residents of low-income status. Medi-Cal doesn’t cover room and board at Los Angeles assisted living communities, but it does cover health care services such as medical appointments, rehabilitation, and hospital stays.

For Medi-Cal to cover health care costs within a Los Angeles assisted living facility, a senior must qualify for the Medicaid program and apply for the Assisted Living Waiver (also known as ALW). ALW is a home and community based services waiver that helps seniors receive care in an assisted living community rather than in a hospital or a skilled nursing facility.

Seniors in Los Angeles can also access Covered California, an online health care portal that offers both Medi-Cal and full coverage health care plans. The Covered California application and the Medi-Cal application are one and the same, so seniors of low-income status can apply through this portal to see if they qualify for Medi-Cal.

Where and how to apply for Medi-Cal

In the resources section below, you’ll find links to online Medi-Cal applications, application assistance contact information, and an enrollment center search to help you find a certified enroller near you.

Additionally, you can also contact your local long-term care ombudsman by using the county search tool. Long-term care ombudsmen advocate for seniors’ rights in assisted living, help seniors with issues regarding care quality, and help them apply for Medi-Cal benefits. Los Angeles also has an Aging and Disability Resource Connection office where seniors can receive additional help with these benefits.

Medicare assisted living coverage in Los Angeles

Medicare is a federal health insurance program available to seniors who are at least 65 years old. Medicare doesn’t cover the costs of room and board in assisted living. Instead, this program only covers medical costs and is split into various parts:

  • Medicare Part A serves as hospital insurance. It covers inpatient hospital stays, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Medicare Part B works as medical insurance. It covers certain doctors’ appointments, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.
  • Medicare Part D offers coverage for prescription medications and some shots or vaccines.[04]

Financial assistance for assisted living in Los Angeles

Seniors who are already enrolled in Medicare and meet certain low-income criteria may be eligible for California’s Medicare Savings Programs. These programs can help seniors cover part of their Medicare premiums, deductibles, and copayments. Seniors can apply for Medicare Savings Programs using the link in the resources section below and receive assistance with the application process from local support organizations.

PACE (Program for All Inclusive Care for the Elderly) can also help seniors save on long-term care costs. This program coordinates care for seniors and helps them live in an assisted living community rather than a nursing home.

Free and low-cost assisted living resources for seniors in Los Angeles, California

If you have more questions about Medicare or need help applying, you can use the free Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP). HICAP offers counseling, education, and legal assistance to seniors and families who have questions about Medicare and long-term care insurance. You’ll find contact information below for local HICAP counselors.

Seniors can also utilize the local Social Security office and the county’s long-term care ombudsman program. They are available to local seniors at no cost and can help answer questions about Medicare. Another option is to dial 2-1-1 or visit the 211 LA website, to get in contact with local services and other programs.

Assisted living laws and regulations in Los Angeles, CA

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) monitors and licenses assisted living facilities in Los Angeles. The CDSS also licenses and regulates all other senior care facilities in the state, often called residential care facilities for the elderly. In addition, the CDSS licenses continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which provide independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing services all on one senior living campus.[05]

Seniors must be assessed before joining an assisted living community in California. Each assisted living facility is responsible for interviewing each prospective resident and reviewing their health records before they move in. Assisted living facilities are required to follow these regulations:[06]

  • House a maximum of two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms can accommodate equipment, such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common areas for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills

Inspections for California assisted living facilities

Assisted living facilities are inspected by the CDSS once a year and within 10 days of receiving a complaint.[06] Inspection reports for each licensed community can be found through the CDSS Care Facility Search. Scroll down to “Search By Facility Group,” and select “Elderly Assisted Living.” Then, select the “Facility Type” and “Los Angeles County.” Finally, click on the search button. You can also search by facility name or address.

COVID-19 regulations for Los Angeles assisted living facilities

Due to the overall decline of COVID-19, Los Angeles assisted living facilities have loosened their restrictions. They still follow infection control guidelines to minimize the spread of common infections, including COVID-19. Communities may choose to update their masking, social distancing, and visitation requirements as they see fit.

For general updates regarding COVID-19, you can visit the Los Angeles County COVID-19 page for information on local guidance.

What assisted living is like in Los Angeles

Seniors who choose assisted living facilities in Los Angeles have many unique options before them. You or your loved one can choose a facility that offers various levels of on-site care services, a smaller care community that features a homelike setting, or even a facility that identifies with a specific cultural background. There’s also an abundance of resort-style assisted living communities in Los Angeles, especially in areas like Beverly Hills and in the heart of Los Angeles.

Multiple care levels accommodate different needs

About 37% of A Place for Mom’s assisted living communities in Los Angeles offer on-site memory care services, which cater to residents who have Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia[01] These communities offer uniquely structured environments, highly-trained caregivers, and specialized cognitive therapies.

When seniors choose an assisted living facility that also offers memory care services, the specialized services may be offered in the same residence, in another wing of the facility, or in a different on-campus building. The benefit of choosing such a facility is that seniors don’t have to worry about moving to a different community should their cognitive care needs change.

Residential care homes offer a homey environment

Los Angeles also has many assisted living options that offer a more relaxed and homelike setting, which differs from larger facilities. Often referred to as board and care homes or residential care homes, these assisted living options provide the same level of assistance in a residential home. The difference is that these homes typically house fewer residents, meaning each senior can receive a more personalized level of care in an intimate setting. Within our Los Angeles assisted living network, approximately 30% of communities are care homes.[01]

Cultural communities offer familiarity and comfort

Some areas in Los Angeles have assisted living communities rooted in different faiths and cultures. For example, there are several Jewish assisted living communities in the Beverly Hills area offering Kosher-certified kitchens, Jewish cuisine, and religious services. Some are also located near synagogues and churches for seniors who wish to practice their faith outside of their assisted living facility. Los Angeles also has assisted living communities inspired by East Asian cultures, some of which are located in or near Little Tokyo.

Resort-style assisted living offers luxe

There are many highly sought-after Los Angeles neighborhoods where seniors can find luxurious amenities combined with the daily care they need. Often nestled among high-end shopping districts, upscale dining establishments, and highly-rated medical centers, these Los Angeles assisted living facilities have much to offer.

Start each day with a chef-prepared, gourmet meal in a restaurant-style dining venue. Then, take a dip in an outdoor swimming pool or attend an exercise class in a professionally supervised fitness center. Join new friends for an afternoon of high tea, or pamper yourself in an on-site beauty salon and barbershop.

Many of these communities are also pet-friendly, so residents can treat their furry friends to a spa session at the dog wash station or take them on a stroll through the pristinely landscaped grounds. Some resort-style communities even offer perks such as a limousine service and personal shoppers.

Transportation for seniors in Los Angeles

In Los Angeles, about 85% of A Place for Mom’s partner assisted living facilities offer either at-cost or complimentary transportation services.[01] Using a community’s transportation services is a safe and convenient way for seniors to get around Los Angeles. Transportation is often scheduled ahead of time and is used for errands such as medical appointments and group outings, so residents can rest assured that this is a senior-friendly and reliable mode of transportation.

Driving in Los Angeles isn’t the best mode of transportation due to its dense population and heavy traffic. Instead, walkable areas and bike-friendly routes make Los Angeles relatively easy to explore. Seniors and their visitors also have access to popular public transportation options, including a few senior-specific transportation services.

Both Union Station Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Metro are popular public transportation hubs, and many of their options have senior discounts. Browse the following transportation options offered at each of these locations:

  • There are over 165 Metro bus routes available.
  • Los Angeles has seven rail lines, each with a connection to one of the bus stops.
  • Metro bikes are available to rent in intervals ranging from one ride to one year.
  • The Metro micro is Los Angeles’ on-demand rideshare option, serving many of the city’s subdivisions as well.
  • Union Station West has a designated taxi pick-up and drop-off location.
  • The Dodger Stadium Express is a bus available at Union Station for passengers attending home games.

Los Angeles also has senior-specific transportation options:

  • Seniors with disabilities may be eligible for Access, the Metro’s rideshare paratransit service.
  • CityRide is designed for seniors over the age of 65 and people with disabilities. It offers discounted rates and curbside service.
  • Transport Seniors LA provides wheelchair-accessible transportation for seniors who need to travel to and from medical appointments, errands, and more.

If you’re planning a visit, be sure to ask about accommodations for seniors with disabilities. Both the sporting arenas and theme parks offer accessible paths, seating, assistive devices, and more to help individuals with disabilities enjoy themselves.

Laid-back city enjoyment
