10 Best Nursing Homes in Los Angeles, CA

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Whatever your senior loved one’s needs are, you can find the right type of senior care for them in Los Angeles. Neighborhoods full of unique character, opportunities for daily fulfilling experiences, and the luxurious advantages of living in Los Angeles await. Sometimes senior living communities are referred to as nursing homes, care centers, and convalescent hospitals. However, those terms only reflect one type of skilled nursing care.

Unlike other types of senior communities, skilled nursing homes provide 24/7 medical supervision and care, a staff of doctors and nurses, and rehabilitation and hospice programs. If your loved one doesn’t require round-the-clock skilled medical care and supervision, isn’t recovering from illness or surgery, and doesn’t need hospice services, a nursing home isn’t the best option for them. Other types of senior care, such as assisted living and memory care, may be better suited for their needs.

Assisted living facilities can accommodate most seniors’ needs, and most offer nursing care services for current residents. Memory care is a specialized form of assisted living meant for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. Your loved one can comfortably age in place in a memory care community and can avoid the hassle of moving into another facility if their needs ever change.

Narrowing down the variety of senior care facilities may be a difficult task. That’s why we’ve created this all-inclusive guide to senior care in Los Angeles. Our 20+ years of senior living market experience and proprietary data from Los Angeles partner communities allows us to include details that are important to local seniors.

We’ve included information on 127 of our assisted living and memory care partner communities in a 10-mile radius of the Los Angeles city center. This guide also provides local information on senior care costs, how seniors and their families pay for care, facility laws and regulations, local senior resources, and a detailed overview of the Los Angeles senior living market.

Costs of nursing homes in the Los Angeles area

Los Angeles nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities typically cost more than other types of senior care due to their specialized medical staff and the 24/7 medical oversight they provide.

In 2021, the monthly median cost of a private room in a skilled nursing facility was $11,269, compared to $9,125 for a semi-private room.[01] Although the monthly cost for a skilled nursing facility can vary depending on floor plan, location, and amenities, the overall cost may include a range of services. Typically, the monthly cost of a private or semi-private room in a skilled nursing home includes the following:

  • Three meals a day plus snacks
  • Personal care services
  • 24/7 skilled medical care
  • Senior-specific amenities
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Utilities and maintenance
  • Emergency call systems
  • Transportation
  • Landscaped outdoor common areas
  • Activity programming

If your loved one doesn’t require 24/7 skilled medical care, another type of senior care may be better suited for your loved one. Because assisted living and memory care facilities don’t provide 24/7 specialized medical care, they tend to cost much less than skilled nursing facilities.

Costs of assisted living and memory care facilities in Los Angeles

In 2022, the average monthly cost that families paid for assisted living facilities in our network was $6,071 and $6,783 for assisted living with memory care. These prices include the cost of personal care, meals, and extras, like add-on services or pet rent. Similar to skilled nursing facilities, the costs of these communities can vary depending on floor plan, location, and amenities. But, on average, assisted living and memory care monthly costs include the following:

  • Three meals a day plus snacks
  • Personal care, like assistance with activities of daily living
  • Medication assistance and administration
  • Weekly housekeeping and laundry
  • Maintenance and landscaping
  • Utilities
  • Activity programming
  • Transportation
  • Senior-specific amenities
  • Specialized therapies and programs
  • Indoor and outdoor common areas, like game rooms, salons, movie theaters, courtyards, pools, walking paths, etc.

How people pay for a nursing home in Los Angeles

You and your family have a variety of options to pay for long-term care. Seniors moving into a nursing home or skilled nursing facility can apply for state and federal programs to help cover costs. If assisted living or memory care is a better option for the senior in your life, they can use some of these options as well. Continue reading to learn how private payment methods, public assistance options, and veterans benefits can help cover the costs of long-term senior care.

Private pay methods in Los Angeles

Families paying for long-term senior care can cover the costs by using their own income, such as savings accounts, pensions, Social Security benefits, and investment returns. The options below may also be available to families:

Selling a house

Reverse mortgage

Health savings accounts

Life insurance

Long-term care insurance

Please note that the coverage provided through long-term care insurance policies can vary. Speak with your loved one’s long-term care policy provider for information on senior care coverage.

VA benefits for nursing homes in Los Angeles

Los Angeles senior veterans who need 24/7 nursing home care in a skilled nursing facility can explore the option of moving into a VA-approved community. Seniors must meet the following requirements to access long-term nursing home care:

  • Enroll in VA health care
  • Receive acknowledgement from the VA that they need specific medical treatment
  • Live near an appropriate facility[04]

Senior veterans who are over the age of 65 and not yet enrolled in VA health care can also look into CalVet, California’s veteran services program. This program enables veterans or their surviving spouses to enroll in a Veterans Benefit Enhancement Program (or VBE). Enrolling in a VBE Program helps seniors transition from California’s Medicaid program to VA health care, giving seniors with disabilities access to more VA living assistance benefits. For assistance with VA health care and other veterans benefits, reach out to the city’s Veterans Justice Center or the county’s Veterans Services Officers.

Veterans Pension program

Wartime veterans may be eligible for the Veterans Pension program. VA pensions are a source of monthly income that your veteran loved one can use to cover senior care costs if they meet the following criteria:

  • The senior hasn’t received a dishonorable discharge.
  • The senior’s annual family income and net worth meet congressional limits.
  • The senior served at least 90 days of service, including one day of wartime.

The senior must also meet at least one of the following:

  • Be at least 65 years old
  • Be diagnosed with a permanent disability
  • Receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)[05]
VA Aid and Attendance benefit

After enrolling in VA health care, seniors can apply for the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. This benefit provides monthly payments that can be combined with VA pension payments to pay for senior care. Note that the type of senior care must improve the senior’s quality of life for this benefit to be used.

To receive the Aid and Attendance benefit, seniors must qualify for the VA Pension, be enrolled in VA health care, and meet at least one of the following requirements:

  • The senior needs help with some activities of daily living.
  • The senior has an illness that keeps them in bed for most or all of the day if left untreated.
  • The senior has significantly impaired vision.
  • The senior currently lives in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility.[06]
  • The senior has a qualifying disability.

Seniors enrolled in VA health care may also apply for the Housebound allowance. Used alongside a VA pension, this benefit can help seniors cover the costs of in-home care, an option sometimes chosen by seniors and their families instead of a nursing home. While this benefit does not provide as much as the Aid and Attendance benefit, it does provide assistance for disabilities due to a disability not related to war time service, like natural aging.[06]

If your loved one is a senior veteran who’s received acknowledgement from the VA that a certain type of care is necessary, they can apply for the Aid and Attendance benefit or the Housebound allowance. However, seniors cannot receive these two benefits at the same time.

Please also note that the application process for these benefits can be challenging, so it’s recommended that you reach out to local veteran advocates for assistance. If you already receive the VA Pension and are enrolled in VA health care, you can begin the application process.

Be sure to seek out guidance from a resource below so that you fill out forms accurately and have everything in place before applying. Veteran advocates or service officers can assist you in successfully accessing your eligible VA health care benefits so you can receive additional income for senior living expenses.

Los Angeles Medi-Cal for nursing homes

California’s Medicaid program is called Medi-Cal. It pays for health care services such as hospital stays, rehabilitation, and medical appointments for low-income California residents. Covered California is the online portal for the state’s residents. Applying through this portal gives access to Medi-Cal as well as low-cost, full-coverage health care plans.

Twenty-four/seven medical care in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility is one of Medi-Cal’s mandatory benefits for eligible Los Angeles seniors. If your senior family member requires such medical care, Medi-Cal will cover the costs of care in a Medicaid-contracted nursing care facility.[07] Medi-Cal also provides in-home health care options.

Medi-Cal for in-home health care services

In-home supportive services through Medi-Cal-approved providers include skilled nursing services. These service programs enable seniors to continue living in their homes or their assisted living facility while getting the nursing care they need. However, not every assisted living facility is contracted with Medi-Cal, so it’s important to check with prospective senior living facilities to see what of their care services may be covered by Medi-Cal on site.

If the facility doesn’t contract with Medi-Cal for their on-site care services, a senior can still receive in-home health care services in their residence through Medi-Cal contracted, third-party agencies.

The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model is another in-home long-term care option available through California’s Department of Health Care Services (or DHCS). Enrolling in this program gives seniors the option to stay in their current residence and receive skilled medical care without moving into a skilled nursing facility. To enroll in the PACE model, a senior must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be at least 55 years of age
  • Live in an area that the PACE model serves
  • Receive confirmation from the DHCS that skilled nursing services are needed
  • Currently live safely within their home or assisted living community[08]
Medi-Cal for assisted living

The Assisted Living Waiver is another option available to Los Angeles seniors who are eligible for Medi-Cal. This waiver enables seniors to get the care they need in an assisted living facility, so that they don’t have to move into an institution like a hospital or a skilled nursing facility. Note that the waiver covers the costs of care services, but it won’t cover the costs of room and board.

Please also note that many of A Place for Mom partner assisted living communities can provide on-site skilled nursing care services to current residents. So, if you grow to need such care while living in the assisted living facility, relocating to a skilled nursing home isn’t the only option.

Medi-Cal assistance and resources

Any of the resources below can assist seniors and their families with Medi-Cal applications and senior health concerns. For application assistance, contact the DHCS’ Medi-Cal Rx Customer Service Center or the county’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman. Ombudsman programs exist to help seniors by advocating for their rights, assisting with benefits, and addressing care concerns.

For assistance with senior health concerns and information on in-home health care, contact the city’s Department of Aging or check out the California Department of Public Health (or CDPH) Senior Health programs.

In-home services
Medicare nursing home coverage in Los Angeles

Medicare provides health insurance to seniors age 65 and older. The health insurance includes medical insurance, hospital insurance, and prescription medication coverage. Note that because it’s a federal health insurance program, Medicare’s three parts only cover certain medical costs:

  • Medicare Part A serves as hospital insurance. It covers inpatient hospital stays, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Medicare Part B works as medical insurance. It covers certain doctors’ appointments, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.
  • Medicare Part D offers coverage for prescription medications and some shots or vaccines.[09]

Nursing home services in Los Angeles skilled nursing facilities may be covered by Medicare for a maximum of 100 days. To receive skilled nursing services that are covered by Medicare, your senior family member needs to have a medical diagnosis and meet each of the following requirements:

  • Be age 65+
  • Receive Part A hospital insurance and have a leftover balance in their benefit period
  • Have an inpatient hospital stay that qualifies for coverage
  • Receive skilled nursing services in a facility certified by Medicare
  • Need skilled nursing services for either a medical condition that was treated during an inpatient hospital stay or for a medical condition that began in a skilled nursing facility[10]
Dual Medicare/Medi-Cal Plan

California’s Senior Care Action Network (SCAN) Health Plan is a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan in partnership with the California’s Medi-Cal program. This dual Medicare/Medi-Cal program provides in-home care services through a Medicare-approved care agency. Seniors who need skilled nursing care may qualify for SCAN, as long as each of the following requirements are met:

  • Be at least 65 years of age
  • Enroll in Medicare Part A and B
  • Enroll in Medi-Cal with the full scope of benefits
  • Live in a Los Angeles County SCAN-approved area
  • Do not have end-stage renal disease[11]

Remember that costs may be covered by Medicare if the costs occur in a Medicare-approved nursing facility. However, Medicare only covers care services, not the cost of room and board in an assisted living facility.

Medicare Savings Programs

If your senior loved one is enrolled in Medicare, consider checking if they’re eligible for any Medicare Savings Programs, as these may cover part of the senior’s Medicare premium. California has four different Medicare Savings Programs that cover either individual Medicare parts or a combination of several.

Seniors who are enrolled in Medicare and meet low-income requirements can apply for Medicare Savings Programs online. It’s a good idea to look for assistance with the application process to ensure you are applying for and receiving all your eligible benefits.

Medicare benefit assistance

For help with Medicare benefits and Medicare Savings Programs, contact the city’s Social Security Administration office. You can also reach out to your county’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman, who will advocate for you or your loved one’s access to senior care.

In addition, the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (or HICAP) is a program in California that walks seniors and their families through the Medicare program. Using the city’s phone number for 211 LA is another great way to learn about local health care services and other local service programs.

Understand California laws and regulations for nursing homes

Los Angeles nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities are sometimes also called care centers and convalescent hospitals. Skilled nursing home facilities need to be licensed by the California Department of Public Health (or CDPH). Sometimes, skilled nursing facilities in California are part of broader senior living communities, such as continuing care retirement communities (or CCRCs).

The list below includes several services that skilled nursing home facilities in California must provide:

  • Physician services
  • Skilled nursing services
  • Dietary services
  • Pharmaceutical services
  • Activity programming
  • Arranged transportation to services that can’t be provided on site
  • A plan for emergency medical care if the on-site physician isn’t present[12]

Skilled nursing home facilities in California must also follow several requirements for their caregiving staff and resident living spaces:

  • Enough nursing staff must be present so that each resident gets at least three hours of services each day.
  • All staff members need to participate in continuing education on safety and care procedures.
  • Each facility is licensed for a different number of residents and beds, and facilities must not exceed these numbers.
  • Each room must have a bed, table, chair, and a space to keep the resident’s belongings.[12]

When a skilled nursing home facility accepts Medi-Cal or Medicare, it is also regulated by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which has the right to approve or deny a facility’s state-level certification.[13]

Assisted living and memory care laws and regulations

Here you’ll find details regarding California’s assisted living and memory care laws and regulations, in case a nursing home or skilled nursing facility isn’t right for the senior in your life.

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) is responsible for licensing assisted living and memory care facilities in Los Angeles. Before a senior moves into one of these communities, the facility is required to provide an assessment. This may involve interviews and a review of the senior’s health records. After your loved one has moved in, the facility must follow these additional regulations:

  • House a maximum of two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms have enough room to accommodate equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common rooms for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills[14]

Facility inspections and reports

Each year, skilled nursing home facilities are inspected by the Licensing and Certification Division of the CDPH.[15] The CDPH Center for Health Care Quality (or CHCQ) has an online dashboard that allows you to search by facility name, facility type, and county to find skilled nursing home facility violations.

Assisted living and memory care facilities are inspected by the California Department of Social Services (or CDSS) once a year and within 10 days of a complaint.[14]

Inspection reports and a list of licensed senior care facilities can be found in the CDSS Care Facility Search. Scroll to “Search By Facility Group,” choose “Elderly Assisted Living,” choose the “Facility Type” and “Los Angeles County,” and click on the search button. The site also gives you the option to search by facility name or address.

COVID-19 regulations for Los Angeles nursing homes

Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is a high priority for Los Angeles County and its residents. The county recommends that everyone gets vaccinated, wears masks in public, and gets tested if they have symptoms. Read Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s current COVID-19 guidelines for frequently updated information.

Los Angeles nursing homes facilities must follow guidance from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health:

Single icon image

Vaccinations. The COVID-19 vaccine and subsequent boosters are recommended for residents in skilled nursing home facilities. Staff are required to have the initial vaccine series and at least one booster.

Single icon image

Masking. Residents must have access to a clean mask at all times and are encouraged to wear them when they leave their rooms. All staff and visitors must wear a mask at all times inside the skilled nursing home facility.

Single icon image

Facility cleanliness. High-touch surfaces and equipment must be cleaned and sanitized with a hospital-grade disinfectant.

Single icon image

Staff safety. Staff must wear N95 respirators when interacting with a resident who has symptoms of the virus or tested positive for the virus. Other personal protective equipment (or PPE) may be used during high-risk situations. PPE includes gowns, protective goggles, and face shields.

Single icon image

Quarantining. Skilled nursing home facilities must have designated isolation areas for resident cases of COVID-19. Residents can leave the isolation area once they are fever-free for at least 24 hours, show symptom improvement, and have isolated for at least 10 days since their symptoms started.

What to expect from senior care in Los Angeles

Nursing home, assisted living, and memory care communities have unique offerings for seniors in Los Angeles. Resort-style amenities, enriching activities, and dynamic cultural communities await future residents. You can even choose a community that offers more than one type of care, bringing peace of mind to you and your family if your loved one’s care needs ever change. Learn more about each care type below and find a lifestyle that fits your family.

Los Angeles nursing homes and senior care facilities

Los Angeles nursing homes facilities have skilled caregivers like doctors and nurses who provide 24/7 supervision and medical care. Some skilled nursing home facilities in the area also coordinate hospice services or rehabilitation services for residents recovering from an illness or a surgery. Assisted living and memory care communities may also have on-site rehabilitation services, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. These Los Angeles senior care facilities sometimes even offer additional therapies, like pet therapy and massage therapy.

Seniors who wish to age in place can receive the same level of care found in a skilled nursing facility in several of our partner Los Angeles assisted living and memory care communities. Though these facilities may not initially admit someone in need of 24-hour skilled nursing care, they often provide access to such services in the event a current resident grows to need them. This means a senior must already live in the assisted living community before transitioning to this skilled level of care.

If your loved one currently doesn’t require 24/7 medical observation, hospice care, or rehabilitation services, a skilled nursing facility is not for them. Consider looking into assisted living communities that can provide levels of care more suitable for your senior loved one.

Los Angeles assisted living

Seniors in Los Angeles can embark on a luxurious lifestyle combined with daily assistance. Los Angeles neighborhoods such as Beverly Hills and North Hollywood offer resort-style amenities and close proximity to upscale dining and shopping districts.

Enjoy a chef-prepared gourmet meal, dip your toes in an outdoor swimming pool, or bond with your neighbors during an afternoon high tea. Break a sweat in a professionally supervised fitness center, stop by the beauty salon, or use a personal limousine service. Even canine companions can enjoy a pampered lifestyle with pristinely landscaped grounds and dog wash stations.

Several Los Angeles assisted living communities are also connected to different faiths and cultures. For example, Jewish assisted living communities in the Beverly Hills area have Kosher-certified kitchens, authentic Jewish cuisine, and religious services. Several communities in Little Tokyo are rooted in East Asian cultures. Other facilities offer nondenominational and spiritual services on site.

Los Angeles also has several board and care homes or residential care homes. Here, seniors receive assisted living services within the comfort of a homelike, residential location. Many of A Place for Mom’s assisted living communities also provide memory care services for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Memory care services may be offered in an assisted living facility’s memory-care-specific wings or buildings on campus, so the senior won’t have to move if their needs ever change.

Los Angeles memory care

Stand-alone memory care facilities exclusively assist seniors who have Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. These facilities offer uniquely structured environments, highly trained dementia-care caregivers, and specialized cognitive therapies. There are several types of these memory care facilities in Los Angeles.

Some of these communities are on smaller properties and cater to individual residents in a more familial setting. Seniors in these communities will find amenities such as cozy candlelight dinners, peaceful common areas, and enclosed gardens and courtyards. Many memory care communities also have registered dieticians on staff and often provide chauffeur services.

The majority of A Place for Mom’s partner Los Angeles memory care facilities are part of larger senior care facilities and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which include independent living, assisted living, memory care, and nursing care. These larger communities boast resort-style services and amenities like rooftop lounges, swimming pools, and gardens specifically designed for relaxation and reflection. On-site activities provide fulfilling experiences, like live on-site performances, regularly scheduled karaoke nights, and virtual reality experiences.
