    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chula Vista

    Chula Vista, the second largest city in the San Diego metropolitan area, has a population of over 150,000 residents — 11 percent are seniors age 65 and over. In Chula Vista and throughout California, assisted living facilities are known as residential care facilities (or RCFs) and are licensed by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. Chula Vista is home to 16 assisted living facilities, with at least 42 more located in nearby communities such as National City, Bonita and San Diego. At least 75 percent of the residents in these facilities are 60 years of age or older. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chula Vista

    • As a coastal town, Chula Vista enjoys a balmy climate that makes it perfect for outings any time of the year.

    • Chula Vista 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.

    • Assisted living facilities in Chula Vista can offer their residents a wide variety of recreational activities, from scenic drives and trips to the beach, to shopping trips and movie nights. The city is also home to a live theater and several colorful annual events, including the famous Lemon Festival.

    • The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) services Chula Vista with three trolley stations and hundreds of bus stops on at least nine different routes. Seniors and persons with disabilities may also qualify for special curb-to-curb paratransit  services.

    • As you might expect, the perks of living in a popular coastal town come with a hefty price tag. The cost of living in the city of Chula Vista is 54 percent higher than the national average.

    • Another drawback for potential residents is poor air quality. Chula Vista is in San Diego County, which is among the highest-ranked metropolitan areas for ozone pollution in the country. According to the American Lung Association, this means that “the air you breathe may put your health at risk.”

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Chula Vista

    For many seniors considering moving into assisted living, cost is understandably one of their greatest concerns. Fortunately, California’s state Medicaid program, Medi-Cal, offers an Assisted Living Waiver (ALW) program to aid eligible seniors with the costs of assisted living facilities in San Diego County. Help is also available to those who qualify through California’s Optional State Supplement (OSS) to Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

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