What to Consider About Assisted Living in San Diego

Senior golfers may enjoy a retirement in San Diego where there are more than 90 golf courses to explore and more playable days each year than anywhere else in the United States. San Diego is home to more than 1.4 million people, with 12 percent of the population aged 65 and older. There are 107 assisted living facilities catering to seniors in the city and surrounding area, all monitored and licensed by the California Department of Social Services, Senior Care Licensing Program

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in San Diego

  • San Diego County, including San Diego, 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 area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The Metropolitan Transit System provides public transport in San Diego and riders aged 60 and older are eligible for discounted fares on services. Paratransit services are also available to people unable to use the regular service.
  • San Diego County, including San Diego, has poor air quality, with the American Lung Association giving the county a C for 24-hour particle pollution and a failing grade for ozone pollution. This may affect the health of seniors with respiratory illnesses.

Some assisted living facilities may arrange trips to see performances by groups such as the San Diego Symphony.
  • San Diego enjoys beautiful weather throughout the year, with high temperatures in July averaging 79 degrees and lows in December of around 46. There are 266 sunny days each year, 61 more than the national average, which may be appreciated by seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors.
