Carson, California

Independent Living

For seniors who would prefer to live primarily without assistance but would like the assistance of having their household chores handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping are handled while you are free to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of expenditures and benefits to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the plan: parking, field trips, laundry, move-in fee, private phone, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, and transportation. The amenities associated with independent living include healthcare center, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, golf course, game/TV room, laundry service, community activities, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living can be a big influence in selecting which community is the best fit for your family. Carson has a median home value of $395,571 and the median cost of rent is around $1,670 per month per month. The rent burden for Carson is about 23.6% of the average person's monthly income.
