Independent Living in Bakersfield, CA

Independent living communities, also known simply as retirement communities in Bakersfield, CA, are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Bakersfield retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Bakersfield is about $2,430 in the city proper, and $2,524 within the metropolitan area. The median monthly cost for independent living in the state of California is around $3,045.

For this type of senior living, Bakersfield, California offers many great options, and A Place for Mom can help you find the right one.

Cost of Living in Bakersfield, CA

Like many cities on the West Coast, the cost of living in Bakersfield is nearly ten points above the national average of 100. This is reflected in the city's high property cost and the fact that over 20 percent of the population pays more than 30 percent of their household income on rent.
