Covina is a small city located on Southern California’s coast, to the southwest of the San Bernardino Mountains. The city has just over 51,000 inhabitants, and 13.6% of those are seniors. The beautiful coastline, pleasant climate and easy access to city amenities make Covina popular with seniors and families alike.

Assisted living facilities support older adults who are generally in good health but struggle with some of the activities of daily living or find it hard to run a household. These facilities may offer personal care assistance, medication reminders and housekeeping, making them an appealing choice for seniors who require some day-to-day help but don’t need the 24-hour medical support provided in nursing homes. The average cost of assisted living care in Covina is $5,000 per month, which is considered average for the state of California and a bit high when compared to the national average of $4,300.

This guide explores the cost of assisted living and other types of senior care in Covina. It also describes the benefits and downsides of retirement in the city and provides some useful resources for seniors in Covina who are considering their long-term care options.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Covina

Covina assisted living communities are regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. This division sets out the rules and regulations assisted living communities are required to follow relating to care provisions, staffing and health and safety. Properties are regularly inspected to ensure they operate in compliance with those regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Covina

  • The cost of living in Covina is above average for California, which is itself one of the more expensive states in the country to live in. However, seniors who reside in an assisted living facility don’t usually have to pay utilities or purchase groceries. The cost of health care in Covina is lower than the national average.
  • California’s tax policies are not particularly senior-friendly. Retirement accounts and pensions are taxed quite heavily. However, Social Security income is not taxed, so lower-income seniors can make their income go a little bit further.
  • The air quality in Covina is variable but can often be poor. This means seniors who have respiratory conditions may find conditions unsuitable for them. However, assisted living facilities often have air conditioning units with filters to help keep residents comfortable whatever the conditions outside.
  • Violent crime rates in Covina are far lower than the national average, and property crime rates are slightly above average. Assisted living facilities are staffed 24 hours a day, and many of them are gated communities with security cameras, giving residents peace of mind that they’re safe in their studio or apartment at all times.
  • Getting around Covina is easy for seniors. Not only do many assisted living facilities have their own private senior transportation services, but the city also offers its own Dial-A-Ride service. Residents aged 60 and over can use this curb-to-curb service to attend appointments, run errands or socialize within the city limits.
