    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marina

    Marina is a scenic seaside community on California's central coast, just north of the city of Seaside, overlooking Monterey Bay. This tourist-friendly town has a permanent population of 22,000 people, 14 percent of whom are seniors age 65 and over. For seniors who need help living independently, the area in and around Marina has at least 23 assisted living facilities that provide a safe and comfortable home.

    Like all residential care communities in the state, Marina's assisted living facilities are licensed and regulated through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marina

    • Marina's climate is typical for coastal California. Mild summers see average high temperatures of just 73 degrees. The equally mild winters bring overnight lows that average 40 degrees. Marina is right on the ocean, but sea breezes only bring about 15.5 inches of rain to town a year. When the wind comes in from the southwest, dust from the nearby sand dunes at Fort Ord can irritate some seniors' COPD or asthma.
    • The cost of living in Marina is 59 percent above the national average, though this is significantly below the average cost of living for California, which can be 69 percent more expensive than the rest of the country. Healthcare is similarly affordable in Marina, where costs are roughly 5 percent lower than the average nationwide.
    • Crime rates in Marina are somewhat below the national average. Across all crime categories combined, Marina has a crime rate that's roughly 33 percent below the average rate for similar-size cities in America. Marina's theft and property crime rates are somewhat higher than this, however, though the violent crime rate in town is very low.
    • Public transportation in Marina is largely in the hands of Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST). MST operates 56 regular routes, which includes trolley service in Monterey, and several on-call and dial-a-ride services for mobility-challenged riders. Seniors age 65 and over, students and military veterans, including family members, can ride MST routes at a discount. Paratransit riders also qualify for discounts with transit ID cards.
    • The Marina area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare and Watsonville Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Marina has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Alliance on Aging, an organization that performs outreach and advocacy for area seniors, as well as benefits consultation and some meal services for Marina seniors, as well as four senior centers.
