What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sierra Madre

Sierra Madre is a small hillside community on the north side of Pasadena. Home to just 11,000 people, 20 percent of Sierra Madre's residents are seniors age 65 and over. The area in and around Sierra Madre has 56 assisted living facilities that provide independent senior living for seniors who need help with the normal activities of daily living (ADLs). Sierra Madre's assisted living facilities, like all residential communities in the state, are licensed through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sierra Madre

  • Sierra Madre's weather is dry and generally very warm. Summers here see average high temperatures of 91 degrees, which can make a few days a year problematic for heat-sensitive seniors. Winters make up for it with very mild lows averaging 47 degrees overnight. Sierra Madre gets an annual average of 21 inches of rainfall, though twice a decade the area undergoes severe droughts that raise irritating dust in the surrounding hills.
  • The cost of living in Sierra Madre is very high for homeowners and others who live independently, though seniors in assisted living can find good savings here and there. The overall cost in Sierra Madre is two and a half times the national average, with a median home cost of over $1 million. Healthcare, on the other hand, costs just 85 percent the national average in Sierra Madre.
  • Sierra Madre's crime rate is very low. Across categories of reported crime, rates here are less than 40 percent the national average. Violent crime is even less common, making Sierra Madre one of the safest communities in the Los Angeles basin.
  • The Los Angeles Metro Authority operates Sierra Madre's Gold Line, which serves Sierra Madre and the northern Pasadena area and offers discount fares for seniors age 60 and over. Within Sierra Madre, dial-a-ride services are provided by Access Services, which operates ADA-compliant vehicles and disabled ride on demand.
  • The Sierra Madre area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Methodist Hospital and Monrovia Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Los Angeles 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.
