    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Carlsbad

    Carlsbad is located on the Pacific coastline in northern San Diego County. It is a resort town, attracting tourists and residents to its beachfront hotels and attractions like Legoland, SeaWorld, and the San Diego Safari Park. Seniors ages 65 and over make up over 16 percent of the residents in Carlsbad, prompting the development of 19 residential care facilities in the city and another 29 located in surrounding communities such as Oceanside, Encinitas and Vistas. These facilities are regulated by the California Department of Social Services

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Carlsbad

    • The overall cost of living in Carlsbad is nearly double the national average. While housing is 297 percent higher than average, expenses such as transportation and health care are considerably less shocking at a little more than 10 percent higher than the U.S. average. 

    • Carlsbad is safer than 32 percent of U.S. cities and has reasonably low crime rates. Residents have only a 1 in 535 chance of becoming a victim of violent crime and a 1 in 51 chance of becoming a victim of property crime, which is lower than 1 in 225 and 1 in 39, respectively, for the state.

    • The Carlsbad area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Scripps Memorial Hospital, in case of medical emergencies or illness.
       
    • Social security income is tax-exempt in California. Seniors will be able to use these savings towards the cost of assisted living.

    • Carlsbad has plenty of safe public transportation options available to seniors including public buses, shuttles, a train and rideshare options.

    • The climate in Carlsbad is incredibly mild and comfortable year-round. The average high during the summertime is 75 degrees and the city sees very little precipitation.
