The City of Burbank sits in the San Fernando Valley and continues up the western slopes of the Verdugo Mountains. It’s located 12 miles northwest of the Los Angeles area and has an estimated population of 102,511, of which 25% are seniors over 60. California is a tax-friendly state for most seniors due to income taxes of 1%. That applies to income under approximately $9,000 for single filers and $18,000 for married. The state does not tax Social Security income but does tax other retirement income.

As the population ages, some seniors may need help with daily tasks, personal care and transportation. Assisted living facilities are a good option for seniors who do not need medical care but can not live independently at home. Seniors can expect to pay an average of $5,000 per month for assisted living in Burbank. This amount is $700 more than the national average of $4,300.

This guide provides information for seniors considering assisted living in Burbank, including the average monthly care costs, the pros and cons for seniors residing in Burbank and a listing of free resources for seniors in the Burbank area.
