    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lakeside

    Lakeside is a beautiful waterfront area located in San Diego County, California. It's home to several beautiful lakes and parks including Santee Lakes and Lindo Lake County Park. There are approximately 20,000 residents in Lakeside, and 13.9 percent of them are over the age of 65. Eight Residential Care Facilities are located in Lakeside which offer assisted living to the area's senior population. Another 55 RCFs are located in nearby areas such as Santee, El Cajon and San Diego. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lakeside

    • Although Lakeside's cost of living is high at 61.8 percent above the U.S. average, seniors living in the area may find that they are able to save money on expenses such as healthcare, which is 15 percent below the national average.

    • Seniors in Lakeside will love the year-round climate that the area has to offer. With only 14 inches of precipitation on average each year, as well as average July high temperatures of 88 degrees and average January lows of 42 degrees, seniors can enjoy spending time outdoors year-round. By comparison, the national average precipitation is 65 inches annually, with average July highs of 86.1 degrees and January lows of 22.6 degrees.

    • San Diego County 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 San Diego County area, including Lakeside, has been ranked among the top ten areas with the worst air quality in the country by the American Lung Association. Seniors with breathing problems and lung-related medical issues may find these problems worsening if they choose to reside in the Lakeside area. 

    • Lakeside has no facilities to choose from in the event of medical emergencies or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in La Mesa.

    • Seniors have no safe public transportation options in Lakeside. However, some RCFs may offer shuttle services to residents.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Lakeside and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Lakeside

    Seniors living in an RCF in Lakeside can apply for financial assistance under a 1915(c) Medicaid Assisted Living Waiver, which is intended to help seniors pay for the cost of services provided to them in assisted living. 

    Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients in California may apply for an Optional State Supplement to help them pay for the cost of room and board expenses when living in an RCF. These expenses are capped by the state for residents who receive SSI. 

    Family supplementation is not permitted in California.

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

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
