What to Consider About Assisted Living in Gardena

Gardena, California, is located in Los Angeles County and is a short drive from Redondo Beach and the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. The city is home to about 60,000 residents, more than 15 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. 

Many seniors require 24-hour personal care and assistance. In Gardena and all of California, facilities that provide assisted living services to seniors are officially known as residential care facilities (RCFs). There are four RCFs in Gardena, as well as an additional 105 located nearby in surrounding areas. RCFs throughout the state are licensed and monitored by the California Department of Social Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Gardena

  • The cost of living in Gardena is more than 70 percent above the national average, which for some seniors, may be too expensive. 
  • Gardena has a moderate year-round climate. With summertime highs around 77 degrees and winter lows of only 49 degrees, seniors can live comfortably and enjoy time outdoors throughout the year. 
  • Violent crime rates in Gardena are high. An average of 6.56 violent crimes per 1,000 residents occur each year in the city, while the state average is only 4.49 violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Some seniors may feel unsafe living in the city, so it's important to find an RCF that has adequate security systems in place. 
  • The air quality in the Gardena area and throughout Los Angeles County is known to be among the worst in the country. This can put seniors' health at risk, particularly if they already have a respiratory illness. 
  • Located in Los Angeles County, Gardena 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.
  • The Gardena area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Memorial Hospital of Gardena, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Gardena

Seniors living RCFs in the Gardena area can apply for financial assistance via California's Assisted Living Waiver. This waiver operates under the state Medi-Cal program and covers the cost of assisted living for eligible seniors, as well as providing other healthcare services.
