Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Covina

  • Living expenses in West Covina are slightly higher than in the typical California city, which may be a consideration for those with limited retirement income. On a cost-of-living index, the city is rated 156.4, meaning that it’s cost of living is about 56% higher than the United States as a whole. Housing costs are nearly double the U.S. average, which may make assisted living a cost-effective option for those who need daily care.   
  • Property crime rates in West Covina have sharply declined in the past two decades, dropping by 42% between 2001 and 2018.
