Independent Living in Los Angeles, CA

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

The median monthly cost of independent living in Los Angeles is about $3,844 in the city proper, and $3,352 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, Los Angeles, California offers many great options, and A Place for Mom can help you find the right one.

Cost of Living in Los Angeles, CA

As one of the largest cities in the world and the cultural hub of the West Coast, living in Los Angeles can be extremely expensive. In terms of cost-of-living index scores, L.A. has nearly double the national average of 100 for cost of living. This is also reflected in the high property values as well as the high median rent. Nearly 30 percent of the population spends more than one-third of their income on housing alone.

Cost-of-living index Grocery index Median rent Rent burden Median home value Median family income Estate tax Sales tax
195 100 $2,085 27% $549,600 $54,501 No estate or inheritance taxes 7.25%

Local Hospitals

In total, there are 21 general hospitals that serve the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. Three of the top hospitals in L.A. are:

  • Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
  • Kaiser Foundation Hospital - Los Angeles
  • Saint Vincent Medical Center

Weather

L.A. has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate. This means that the city experiences very dry summers and mild winters.

As the largest city on the West Coast, Los Angeles is filled with arts and cultural opportunities that can be found nowhere else in the world. For film buffs, there is Hollywood, the walk of fame, and the iconic Griffith Observatory that overlooks the city. Some might remember this location from the fight scene in the classic film Rebel without a Cause with James Dean and Natalie Wood. While the Getty Center and The Broad are world-renowned, there are many smaller art galleries throughout L.A. that showcase the forefront of the contemporary art scene. Living in L.A. means that residents have to contend with the high amounts of traffic and limited public transportation options. For many, having a car is a must to get anywhere.
