Learn More About Independent Living in Lakewood, CA

Greetings from Lakewood, a lovely town in Los Angeles County, just north of scenic Long Beach. Lakewood is a close-knit community that offers something for everyone. Originally designed as a town for retired veterans and their families, Lakewood has the reputation of being an ideal place to settle down.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Lakewood 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 Lakewood retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.


Cost of Independent Living in Lakewood, CA

The median monthly cost of independent living is about $3,400 in the Lakewood area and $3,000 in the state of California.
