San Diego Weather and Climate

San Diego's warm, sunny climate is pretty hard to beat. Seniors who choose to live in the area will rarely have to worry about remembering an umbrella before venturing outside, since it typically rains less than 50 days per year.

San Diego residents can expect average high temperatures ranging from about 65 to 75 degrees F year-around, and lows that rarely dip below 50 degrees. Unusual weather patterns do sometimes make their way to the area, though. In July 2015, in the midst of California's ongoing historic drought, San Diegans saw record rainfall, the likes of which haven't been recorded since 1902.

Cost of Assisted Living in San Diego

Assisted living in San Diego isn't cheap, with monthly costs starting around $3,500 on average - though that typically includes meals, transportation and activities. Still, seniors planning to settle in a San Diego assisted living community will face lower costs than other major metropolitan areas in the state such as San Francisco, where average assisted living costs start around $3,800 per month and average home values surpass $1 million, according to Zillow. Another consideration -- Californians don't pay taxes on social security benefits, which can help balance out the higher costs.

San Diego Assisted Living Options

San Diego's more than 100 assisted living options include communities operated by large, national companies and those that are locally owned. These range from smaller facilities with fewer than 50 individual units to sprawling campuses with hundreds of apartments. Most assisted living communities in San Diego offer multiple levels of care for residents depending on their physical or mental health needs, ranging from medication management and light assistance with daily tasks to higher levels of care.

Some of San Diego's assisted living communities also specialize in Alzheimer's or memory care, tailoring care levels and activities to seniors with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The types of amenities communities offer can vary widely, but often include regularly scheduled activities, events and outings, a range of dining options, a fitness room and pool.

San Diego Neighborhoods

Assisted living communities are located throughout the city and the county of San Diego, from the highly walkable, lively Uptown area to the ritzy coastal community of La Jolla or quiet suburbs like La Mesa. Within the city itself, assisted living options aren't concentrated in any one area, though a slightly higher number of options can be found in the Uptown and downtown areas, wealthy coastal areas such as the Peninsula and La Jolla, and areas like Clairemont Mesa and Rancho Penasquitos, which are further inland and have a more suburban feel.

There is a slightly higher concentration of assisted living options in the San Diego suburbs than within city limits -in towns like La Mesa, Chula Vista and National City. These areas tend to be quieter, more residential and have more of a small-town feel than San Diego itself.

Transportation Options

While virtually all of San Diego's assisted living communities provide shuttles or other transportation for residents, the city offers public transportation options, too. Residents and visitors can get around via one of the San Diego Metropolitan System's 89 bus routes and three trolley lines. The greatest volume of mass transit serves San Diego's downtown and coastal areas. In suburbs and other parts of San Diego that aren't as well served by public transportation, taxicabs and ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft are easy to find, but can be pricey.

San Diego Healthcare Options

San Diego is home to numerous nationally ranked physicians, clinics, hospitals and medical centers equipped to cover the gamut of senior health care issues. The city's larger hospitals include the UC San Diego Medical Center, which U.S. News and World Report ranks among the nation's best for geriatrics and general healthcare for patients 65 and older.

Other nationally ranked hospitals in the area include Scripps La Jolla Hospitals and Clinics, Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center and Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, located about 9 miles east of downtown.

Outings in and Around San Diego

There are myriad activities for seniors and their families in San Diego. A typical week at many of San Diego's assisted living communities includes at least one outing to a local restaurant for lunch or dinner and shopping trips to stores like Target, Wal-Mart, Ralph's, or Trader Joe's. When it comes to recreation, most of the area's assisted living communities organize trips that take advantage San Diego's temperate weather and beautiful outdoors spaces, from walks on area beaches to picnics at Balboa Park. Other popular sites for assisted living trips in the area include churches of various denominations, shopping malls and casinos.

For assisted living residents interested in activities outside of their communities, the city's many senior centers host regular recreational opportunities designed for the 65-and-over crowd including games, crafts and dances in addition to day trips, art contests, exhibits and performances. Visiting children and grandchildren can also take advantage of the area's abundance of attractions, from the San Diego Zoo to Legoland or baseball games at Petco Park.
