A city of only about 177,000 people, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is located in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in San Bernardino County. The area, which is located just 37 miles from downtown Los Angeles, was considered one of the best places to live in 2006 and is known for some of the best public amenities in the state. The area, which was founded in 1839 and originally called simply "Cucamonga," is home to the popular Victoria Gardens. Touted as a lifestyle center, Victoria Gardens, the indoor-outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment venue features several anchor stores, some smaller stores, and a food court. It also houses the city's library and the 570-seat theater known as Lewis Playhouse. A movie theater and a variety of local and national restaurants and bars are also on the property.

The nearby shopping and dining options, as well as the easy access to even more culture and entertainment in Los Angeles, makes Rancho Cucamonga, CA, an ideal place to seek an assisted living facility for your loved one, and A Place for Mom can help. We partner with dozens of facilities in the area to help you ask and answer questions, tour communities, and learn more about how to make the transition from independent living to assisted living easier for you, your loved one, and the entire family.

Assisted Living in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type of long-term housing that also provides senior care services. Seniors who live in assisted living communities or facilities receive assistance with planning, preparing, and eating meals, personal hygiene, dressing, transportation, and managing medication, among other tasks. Some assisted living communities also provide doctors, nurses, and other medical staff onsite 24 hours per day, and most of them offer exercise programs, book clubs, and a wide variety of other services related to the residents' hobbies and interests. There are different variations of assisted living as well. Some communities are considered independent living, which means the senior loved one still has his or her own apartment and can come and go as he pleases, but has a nearby nurse or housekeeping service for assistance. Other facilities are 24-hour care, and staff members are never more than a few feet from your loved one's needs.

What Is Senior Living Like in Rancho Cucamonga, CA?

Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is a popular destination for many people who seek out assisted living facilities for their senior loved ones. For those who are still highly physically active, the area is known for the Cucamonga Wilderness. The federally designated area in the eastern portion of the San Gabriel Mountains is perfect for camping and hiking. Seniors who prefer to enjoy nature at an easier pace often spend time at Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park, which houses two fishing lakes, pedal boats, and a small water play area perfect for enjoying with the grandkids. Joseph Filippi Winery & Vineyards offers tours and wine tastings, and an arts and crafts event is almost always going on at Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation.

Of course, there is plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment available at Victoria Gardens as well. With the many things to do in Rancho Cucamonga itself, plus the close proximity to Los Angeles, it's easy to see why active seniors love living in the area. Of course, Los Angeles is home to such tourist (and local!) attractions as the La Brea Tar Pits, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the Kodak Theater. That isn't even counting all the parks, shopping centers, and unique eateries in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. Of course, most assisted living communities do offer transportation to and from the many things to see and do.

What Services Are Available?

Available services depend on the individual assisted living community. Most communities can be divided into three categories: basic facilities, luxury communities, and ones that fall somewhere in the middle. Basic facilities are often the most affordable. They provide private or shared rooms for residents and help with everyday needs such as dressing, bathing, and medication management. Meals are usually eaten cafeteria-style or provided in the room, and some activities take place regularly. Doctors' offices may be close, but there likely isn't a doctor on the facility's staff. Luxury communities are usually the most expensive but often provide it all.

In addition to providing assistance with basic ADLs ( Activities of Daily Living) and IADLs, these facilities are often equipped to handle incontinence issues, advanced health ailments, such as Alzheimer's, and even hospice care. They often provide private rooms, shared rooms, or even entire apartments for their residents, and residents eat meals at home, via room service, or in a restaurant environment. Luxury facilities provide full social schedules and plenty of transportation to local events.

Finally, many communities fall somewhere in the middle. They may have some medical staff onsite or have a staff that visits weekly. Middle-of-the-road facilities may offer only private rooms, provide higher-quality services, or offer more "field trips" than basic facilities, but will not provide as many amenities as a luxury provider.

Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

A Place for Mom creates detailed assessments of assisted living records and reports provided by each state. We base our assessments on a wide range of criteria, including how much information is available, how easy it is to search, how often the information is updated, and more. The state of California has a high rating because it provides a searchable database of information, including complaints and violations, for every assisted living facility. The information is very transparent and updated within 90 days of any complaint being filed. The state doesn't receive an exceptional rating because it only requires mandatory inspections once every five years. To view the information for assisted living facilities and communities in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, navigate to the California Department of Social Services website, narrow your search results, and click on the community's name to find links to any inspection reports.

How Much Does Assisted Living Cost in Rancho Cucamonga, CA?

Assisted living in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, ranges from $1,500 to $12,420 per month. The more basic the amenities provided are, the more affordable the assisted living facility will be. Luxury amenities typically cost much more. However, there are some average prices in the area that can help you determine about how much you'll be spending. Within city limits, prices range from $2,593 to $4,974 per month, depending on whether it is independent living, assisted living, or memory care. Within the metro area, prices vary on average between $2,407 and $4,711. Price may vary plus or minus $1,000.

Does Medicare Pay for Assisted Living in Rancho Cucamonga, CA?

Medicare is a temporary solution for temporary medical situations. What this means is that Medicare will only pay for short-term stays in assisted living facilities and cannot cover long-term care for permanent housing in a community. Medicare is best used for situations in which your senior loved one has to have surgery and will require several weeks of rehabilitation or in-home health care. However, Medicaid (which is not to be confused with Medicare) may provide assistance in some states. Medicaid is a last resort for people who have no other payment options, though, as the service is typically only provided to seniors who have no insurance or other assets.

How Can I Afford Assisted Living in Rancho Cucamonga, CA?

Depending on whether your loved one needs to be moved to an assisted living community in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, right away or you have some time to plan, you have several payment options for your loved one. First, look at his or her insurance, savings, and assets. Perhaps your loved one has a long-term care insurance policy that will cover some or all of the cost of assisted living. Maybe he or she has a life insurance policy that can be sold for a lump sum that you can put against the cost of the facility. Other options include using money in checking or savings accounts, selling cars, boats, or other recreational vehicles, or selling a house the loved one will no longer be living in. Keep in mind that if your loved one is a veteran or is the widow or widower of a veteran, he or she may be eligible for financial assistance.

If your senior loved one does not have assets that can go toward the cost of assisted living, you'll need to consider your own sources of income and wealth. First, ask the assisted living community you're interested in if it offers any sort of move-in discounts, flexible payment options, or anything else that could lower the overall total. From there, determine if you can fit a new month bill into your budget. If not, you can consider your savings accounts, taking out a second or reverse mortgage on your home or your loved one's home, or selling other valuables. If you have other adult family members in your life who care for your loved one, you may even be able to pool money.

Finally, consider where you can save money when signing up for services and amenities at the community. If you and your other family members live far away, it is probably best to spend the extra money on an all-inclusive package. However, if you live close and can take on some of the responsibility, you can ask the facility if it offers any a la carte options. For example, you may be able to skip onsite doctors in favor of going to his or her regular (in-plan) doctor. You might be able to cook several meals for your loved one, so you only need to pay for breakfasts and lunches. You may also be able to save on housekeeping services and transportation services if you are close enough to take care of it on your own.
