What to Consider About Assisted Living in El Monte

California's Department of Social Services monitors assisted living communities in El Monte to ensure they follow the state's health and safety rules. Seniors and their loved ones can contact the agency to learn about the state's regulations and report subpar care services. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in El Monte

 

  • El Monte has lower crime rates than much of California. In an average year, the city sees about 3.86 violent offenses per 1,000 residents compared to 4.99 statewide. Similarly, El Monte experiences about 18.86 property crimes per 1,000 people versus 23.43 statewide.

 

  • The cost of living in El Monte ranks 45% higher than the U.S. norm. Housing prices drive much of this discrepancy, with local homes selling for about 114% more than the national average. Moving into an assisted living community helps many seniors manage expenses thanks to fixed monthly rates.

 

  • California's tax rates rank among the nation's highest, ranging from 1% to 13.3%. However, the state exempts Social Security benefits from retirement taxes, lowering seniors' tax bills. Additionally, seniors can turn to the AARP Foundation's Tax-Aide program to get filing assistance and learn about potential tax deductions.

 

  • The AARP Livability Index gives El Monte an overall score of 52, ranking it among the top half of communities nationwide. Additionally, Los Angeles County, which includes El Monte, maintains membership in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, indicating that local leaders work to create a senior-friendly environment.

 

  • As part of Los Angeles County, El Monte has a high risk of experiencing wildfires and earthquakes, according to FEMA. For seniors' safety, California requires assisted living communities to have disaster preparedness plans, including emergency transportation services and evacuation procedures.

 

  • El Monte's climate offers approximately 282 sunny days annually, well above the national average of 205. The city experiences high temperatures of around 89 degrees Fahrenheit in August, while lows dip to about 46 degrees Fahrenheit in December. Rainfall is rare, averaging just 16 inches annually compared to 38 inches nationally, and the city's humidity levels rarely become uncomfortable.
