What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bonita

The California Department of Social Services' Senior Licensing Program handles licensing and other regulatory issues for assisted living communities in the state. It conducts regular inspections to ensure each facility provides residents with the appropriate level of care. The department also handles incoming complaints, issuing citations or revoking licenses when needed. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bonita

 

  • Bonita provides seniors with a safer place to retire. It boasts an overall crime rate that's lower than the state average and safer than 32% of neighborhoods across the country. The rate of violent crime is especially low, making it a safer area for all ages. 

 

  • The area offers year-round outdoor opportunities for seniors, thanks to its comfortable climate and consistent weather patterns. Though the summers are short and warm, year-round temperatures typically range from 47 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, with few clouds and little rain. 

 

  • Though the overall cost of living in Bonita is 54.9% higher than the national average, it's reasonable when compared to the rest of the state. In fact, on a scale of 1 to 100, with the U.S. average at 100, health care scores only 89 for the Bonita area, making it more affordable than average for older adults who live in the area.

 

  • Along with lower health care costs, Bonita offers better access to health care than many other parts of the state and country. The national average is 210 physicians per 100,000 people, compared to Bonita with 233 doctors per 100,000. Though there are several hospitals and clinics in the city, the proximity to San Diego makes it easy to access the large health care community there as well. 

 

  • Though normal wages, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed, the state exempts Social Security benefits from taxation. This makes Bonita an attractive area for retired seniors who rely predominantly on their Social Security.
