With 274,492 residents, including 33,200 seniors, Chula Vista is one of the largest cities in Southern California. This thriving community is a smart choice for seniors who want to enjoy art, culture, recreation and entertainment while aging in place. Named for its beautiful views, the community inspires locals and travelers with its miles of scenic coastline. Local attractions include the OnStage Playhouse and the Living Coast Discovery Center on San Diego Bay. The area is also known for its sunny climate that makes it possible for retirees to enjoy outdoor activities year-round.

There are numerous home care programs available to help Chula Vista seniors age in place safely and successfully. Seniors who need assistance to remain living independently can expect to pay $5,716 for either in-home care or home health care services, according to Genworth Financial’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey. This is well above the national averages of $4,481 for homemaker and $4,576 for home health aide services.
