What to Consider About Assisted Living in Corona Del Mar

Community Care Licensing, a division of the California Department of Social Services, has the authority to issue and revoke licenses for assisted living facilities. The department is responsible for monitoring and inspecting licensed facilities. Inspections are unannounced and unrestricted, and data from other departments, such as the Long-Term Care Ombudsman, can also influence licensing decisions.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Corona Del Mar

  • According to Sperling’s Best Places, Corona Del Mar has an average cost of living index of 353.3, which is much higher than the state and national averages of 149.9 and 100, respectively. Although this may initially concern seniors considering assisted living in the community, they should know that the index is almost entirely due to housing costs. The health care index for the area, however, is 95.9, which is below the national average.
  • Crime Grade gives Corona Del Mar an overall marking of D+ due to its above-average violent crime rates and below-average property crime. This elevates the city slightly above Newport Beach, which was awarded a D. Seniors concerned about crime should know that, generally, the northern parts of Corona Del Mar are considered safer than other parts of the neighborhood. 
  • Corona Del Mar’s climate is ideal for seniors. The temperature averages at a cool 43 degrees F in winter, and in summer, fresh Pacific breezes temper the summer heat, resulting in a comfortable average of 78 degrees F. This is helped by low levels of rainfall, ensuring the neighborhood’s seniors rarely need to handle damp heat, which should be of particular interest to those with respiratory conditions.
  • Many medical facilities serve the needs of Corona Del Mar’s seniors, such as Newport Center Urgent Care and Hoag Memorial Hospital. Due to its location, the neighborhood’s residents are only 40 minutes from Los Angeles, home to some of the finest hospitals in the country. Those with Medicare plans can also get quality care from a very high number of physicians registered to treat them.
  • Air quality in Corona Del Mar is slightly below the national average. However, the area scores 97/100 for the work it’s doing to reduce pollution as part of the EPA’s Superfund program. The neighborhood also has excellent water quality, scoring 65/100, which is 10 points above the national average.

The survey also reveals the national average to be $300 per month lower, but this should be expected as California is the third most expensive state in the union.
