    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Altadena

    Altadena is a sunny northern suburb of Pasadena, adjacent to the northern hills and not far from downtown Los Angeles. Just under 43,000 people live in Altadena, 17 percent of them seniors age 65 and over, with 60 assisted living facilities for those who need help with activities of daily living (ADLs), but who still want to preserve their independence.

    Assisted living facilities in Altadena, like those in the rest of the state, are licensed through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Altadena

    • Altadena's weather, like the larger Pasadena area it's a part of, is hot in summer and mild in winter. Summer highs average 91 degrees here, with winter lows averaging 47 degrees. Winter brings 21 inches of rain to the hills north of town, raising allergens the Santa Ana wind blows over Altadena. This can be problematic for seniors with asthma, though the hills dry out late in the season and lower the pollen count.
    • The overall cost of living in Altadena is high, relative to most communities in the United States. Compared with the rest of the nation, Altadena costs more than double the average, though most of this expense is the high cost of local real estate. The median home cost in Altadena is over $800,000. Healthcare is actually less expensive than average, with roughly 15 percent lower rates than is typical nationally.
    • Crime rates are on the low side in Altadena. In most categories of crime, local incidents are 10 to 15 percent less common than in similar-sized communities around the country. Violent crime is less common still in Altadena.
    • Pasadena Transit provides much of the bus service in and around Altadena. Connections to the Los Angeles Metro are available at several locations in the Pasadena network. Both services offer discount fares for seniors age 60 and over, as well as ADA-compliant vehicles and disabled ride services that may be requested in advance.
    • The Altadena area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Huntington Hospital and Methodist Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Los Angeles is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Altadena and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Altadena

    Los Angeles County, where Altadena is located, is one of the few California counties to participate in the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver program. This waiver helps low-income seniors with some of the cost of assisted living or home care.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in California page.

    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
