Torrance Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Torrance:

Meals on Wheels

Address: 3525 Maricopa Street, Torrance, California 90503
Phone Number: (310) 542-3434

The Torrance-Lomita Meals on Wheels service delivers nutritious meals to homebound seniors. Meal deliveries take place every weekday around noon. As a part of the service, the volunteer drivers perform a welfare check on the service’s clients. A nominal charge for meals helps cover the running costs of the program.

California Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 2389 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 100, Sacramento, CA 95833
Phone Number: (866) 675-6623

This statewide program is available to those aged 60 and over who need assistance with their heating and cooling costs. Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income or TANF are automatically eligible for the program. Others must meet income and asset requirements. The program helps households improve the energy efficiency of their properties, thereby reducing their bills and improving their health and safety.

Section 8 Rental Assistance Program

Address: 3031 Torrance Boulevard, Torrance, CA 90503
Phone Number: (310) 618-5840

This federally funded program helps seniors with low incomes cover the cost of renting private accommodation that is safe, sanitary and suitable for their needs. The payment is capped based on the size of the property. Seniors must meet income and asset eligibility checks to receive assistance.

Homeowner’s Property Tax Exemptions

Address: 500 W. Temple Street, Room 225, Los Angeles, CA 90012-2770
Phone Number: (888) 807-2111

Seniors who own their homes may be able to apply for a homeowner’s property tax exemption worth up to $7,000 by contacting the Office of the Assessor. Other available exemptions may be of use to seniors who are considering buying a new home, or who would like to defer their property tax.

Focal Point on Aging

Address: 1339 Post Avenue, Torrance, CA 90501
Phone Number:  (310) 320-1300

Focal Point on Aging is an information and referral service that connects Torrance-based older adults and their caregivers with resources to help them age with dignity at any stage. It connects seniors with transportation, housing, Meals on Wheels, health care, and social and legal services. Trained volunteers perform assessments and refer individuals to the support that best suits their needs. There is no charge for this service.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
