What to Consider About Assisted Living in Monrovia

The Senior Care Licensing Program of the California Department of Social Services licenses and monitors senior residential care facilities — which include assisted living facilities — in Monrovia and elsewhere in the state. The program conducts regular inspections to ensure that facilities comply with state laws and it investigates and tries to resolve complaints as they arise.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Monrovia

 

  • The cost of living in Monrovia is approximately 41% higher than the national average. Fortunately, seniors residing in the area’s assisted living facilities are not as affected by this as those living in their own homes. This is because assisted living facilities generally charge an all-inclusive monthly fee.

 

  • Monrovia doesn’t have a major airport but can be easily reached by car or metro. The Los Angeles International Airport, which is only 40 miles away, provides a convenient option for family and friends to visit.

 

  • The state of California isn’t tax-friendly to retirees because it taxes income from retirement accounts and pensions. However, the state exempts Social Security benefits from taxes, and seniors may claim a senior income tax exemption on top of the primary personal exemption.

 

  • Los Angeles County, including Monrovia, is a member of AARP’s network of livable, age-friendly communities. This membership is proof of county leadership’s commitment to enhancing the county’s livability and accessibility, making it more accommodating for people of all ages and abilities. Los Angeles County ranks in the country’s top 50% of communities, with a score of 51 out of 100 on AARP’s livability index.

 

  • Monrovia’s overall crime rate is notably lower than the national average. The violent crime rate, with a score of 9.4, compares especially well to the U.S. average of 22.7., while the property crime rate is slightly higher at 31.9, but it still falls below the U.S. average of 35.4. Fortunately, most assisted living facilities have excellent security systems and seniors are advised to take standard precautions to ensure their safety.

 

  • Seniors in and around Monrovia have access to numerous doctors, medical facilities and hospitals. Monrovia Memorial Hospital, an acute care facility, specializes in providing extended care for medically complex patients. However, the hospital doesn’t have an emergency room. USC Arcadia Hospital in neighboring Arcadia is a full-service hospital that can treat virtually any condition and it also has an emergency department.
