What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chatsworth

Chatsworth is a community within Los Angeles County in the San Fernando Valley. The city is known for its Native American rock art and the famous Iverson Movie Ranch, and it is home to a modestly sized population of just over 30,000. Seniors here can choose from eight assisted living facilities within the city and over 300 in the surrounding areas. These communities are regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division, which calls them Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly and defines them as facilities that provide room, board and care for seniors. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chatsworth

  • The cost of living in Chatsworth is 90.8 percent above the U.S. average, predominantly due to the high costs of housing and transportation. Grocery costs are comparable to national medians and healthcare is slightly below average, which may benefit seniors on a budget.  
  • Seniors can find plenty of things to do within Chatsworth, such as the Chief Vann House Historic SiteCarters Lake Marina and Resort and the Chatsworth Train Depot. The nearby Robert M. Wilkinson Multipurpose Senior Center also offers social and recreational activities.  
  • Chatsworth has a warm Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers reaching highs of 92 degrees Fahrenheit in July and cool winters with lows of 45 degrees. Most years have no snowfall, and rainfall is below the national average at 18 inches. This moderate weather could be beneficial for active seniors who enjoy the outdoors.

Wilkinson Multipurpose Senior Center offer transportation services to seniors 60 and over who cannot take public transit.  
  • While California exempts Social Security benefits from taxation, the state does tax all income from retirement accounts and pensions, which may make it difficult for seniors who are looking to maximize their retirement income.
