Huntington Terrace North LLC in Huntington Beach, CA

I like living at this community. The manager is wonderful and caring. I like that I have a place that I can cook on my own, but each Friday I do enjoy all of the meals that are home cooking and them nice always decorate on the holidays which are enjoyable. They do offer alot of great activities that are available if wanted. A lot of social activities and a nice library. I would highly recommend this great community with great care and a nice value for others.

Sea Cliff Assisted Living in Huntington Beach, CA

Well worth the price. Very reasonable for the area, it is 5 blocks from Huntington Beach. My Dad is not a fan of the food but he does like the staff. He likes the socialization and being with the people. It has been closed to visitors due to the virus since shortly after he moved in so I have not been able to visit much so far.

How people pay for senior apartments in Long Beach

It’s likely that you’ll use your own personal resources to cover the monthly costs of living at a senior apartment community since it’s considered a form of general housing. However, there is financial assistance available to help you offset certain costs.

To give you a better idea of your potential options, you’ll find additional information on a range of payment methods below, including private resources, VA benefits, Medicaid, Medicare, and public assistance.

Private pay methods

Most seniors will use private resources to fund their stays at senior apartment communities. Typically, they’ll rely on a combination of Social Security benefits and retirement savings. Others may bankroll senior housing by way of distributions from retirement accounts, income generated by investments, pensions, and any of the following methods:

Understand California laws and regulations for senior apartments communities

Because senior apartment communities are considered a form of general housing, owners and landlords aren’t required to obtain a license for operation. Still, there are housing laws associated with these properties. The Fair Housing Act, for example, applies to senior rentals, prohibiting owners and landlords from discriminating against or offering less favorable terms and conditions to renters in protected classes. The Housing Authority of the City of Long Beach helps break down barriers to equal opportunity for local residents.

Apart from the Fair Housing Act, senior apartment communities must also comply with all laws associated with the Americans with Disabilities Act. For instance, a property owner would be required to make reasonable modifications (adding a bathroom grab bar, building ramp, etc.) to the inside or outside of a rental unit to ensure renters with disabilities have equal opportunity to use the property.

Long Beach Development Services has put together a Tenant/Landlord Rights and Responsibilities guide for more details. The California Department of Real Estate also has a renter’s guide available, which delves deeper into the rental process, repair requests, security deposits, lease terminations, evictions, and other valuable information.


Though owning and operating a senior apartment community requires no special license, the property is subject to regular inspections as part of the Proactive Rental Housing Inspection Program. If a property has four or more dwelling units, then the city will conduct an inspection within 60 days of November 1 each year.

Occupancy requirements

In Long Beach, the only requirement for living in a senior apartment community is based on age. You must be at least 55 or older to rent a unit.

COVID-19 regulations for Long Beach senior apartments communities

The City of Long Beach does have health orders in place to help control the spread of COVID-19. These orders are in general alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. However, senior apartment communities may have their own guidelines, so it’s always important to contact the community of interest prior to signing a rental agreement.


Vaccinations and boosters are strongly encouraged to control the spread of COVID-19.


Wearing a mask is strongly encouraged when in public. It’s also critical if someone presents symptoms, tests positive, or has been exposed to COVID-19.

Facility cleanliness.

Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols are strongly encouraged.


Isolate if testing positive for COVID-19.

What to expect from senior apartments in Long Beach

Long Beach senior apartments are great places to retire. Without as much hustle and bustle of nearby L.A., but with plenty of access to big-city amenities and a gorgeous seaside lifestyle, it’s not hard to see why seniors enjoy leisure living in Long Beach.

Retirees who move into a senior apartment community usually want to age in place and live among peers. Properties often come equipped with age-friendly features that enable a combination of independence and accessibility. Additionally, many communities provide ways to build social connections with other residents. For instance, some schedule an array of recreational activities for seniors to enjoy while socializing.

Apartment features

The features found in any given unit will vary greatly from one community to the next. The senior apartments in the Long Beach area are no exception. If you’re moving into a senior apartment, you’ll likely enjoy a full kitchen, full bath, and spacious living area. You may also benefit from extra additions such as a private balcony or patio, an individual office space, a walk-in closet, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, and more.

Community amenities

Looking for a senior apartment community in Long Beach? Your options range from affordable to luxury. Affordable communities may offer recreation rooms, gated courtyards, and laundry facilities. However, some of the luxury apartments may offer additional amenities, including clubhouses, fitness centers, on-site maintenance, and concierge services. You’ll want to have plenty of opportunities to spend time outside to enjoy the gorgeous Long Beach weather and perhaps some coastal views.

Location considerations

One of the more important considerations when moving to a senior apartment community will be its location. All of the partner communities listed in this guide are within a 10-mile radius of the downtown Long Beach area, so you’ll have easy access to many restaurants, shops, and sights. However, you’ll also want to consider how far away you are from family, friends, public transportation stops, and medical providers.
