What to Consider About Assisted Living in Upland

Assisted living facilities in Upland are licensed through the California Department of Social Services, Senior Care Licensing Program.

It monitors local facilities through the San Bernardino Adult & Senior Care Regional Office in Riverside. To contact this office, individuals can call (951) 248-2222.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Upland

  • The overall cost of living in Upland is 141.4, about 8 percentage points below the state score on a 100-point index based on average living costs nationwide, meaning that it’s one of the most budget-friendly places to live in California. Housing prices are affordable by California’s standards but well over national norms. Assisted living may be a good option for those who want to live in this city without worrying about high housing costs.
  • Historically, property crime is a little more prevalent in Upland than in the typical U.S. city, but the frequency of incidents has been declining over the past two decades. Violent crime is uncommon, which may provide peace of mind to older adults. On a 100-point crime index, the city rates 13.8 for violent crime and 42.5 for property crime compared to 22.7 and 35.4 nationally.
  • On a 10-point comfort index, Upland rates 8.5 compared to the national score of 7.8, indicating that its weather is pleasant compared to the U.S. as a whole. Daytime temperatures in this city range from 67 degrees in the winter to 94 in the height of summer, giving seniors plenty of opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities.
  • Health care costs in Upland come in about 17% below national norms, which may indicate affordable medical care for seniors. San Antonio Regional Hospital, a 363-bed nonprofit hospital, is located in the city proper, providing a range of primary and specialty care services.
  • California’s high state income taxes may be a consideration for seniors with limited incomes. However, while most forms of retirement income are taxable at the state level, California exempts Social Security benefits for all seniors.
