Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pasadena

  • The city’s government offers a Dial-a-Ride service for senior residents. This low-rate service provides curb-to-curb transportation within Los Angeles County. 
  • While Pasadena’s overall cost of living is well above the state and national medians, costs for utilities, transportation and groceries are in line with the rest of California. 
  • Pasadena’s health care providers charge less than other parts of the country. Additionally, the city has 211 medical professionals for every 100,000 residents, compared with the national average of 210. 
  • The city is home to several medical centers, including Huntington Health, which has a specialized senior care department. Other highly rated hospitals are the Alhambra Hospital Medical Center and the Methodist Hospital. 
  • Pasadena retirees enjoy excellent weather year-round. The city has 286 sunny days yearly, sees no snow and rarely experiences rain. 
  • The city has low violent crime rates and ranks slightly above the national median for property crime. Additionally, assisted living facilities generally have security measures in place for residents.
