What to Consider About Assisted Living in Winnetka

Winnetka is a small residential community on the floor of Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. The surrounding San Fernando community is home to 24,700 people, only 8 percent of whom are seniors age 65 and over. The Valley floor area has at least 162 assisted living facilities where seniors can live independently while getting help with the normal activities of daily living (ADLs).

All of Winnetka's assisted living facilities, like similar communities throughout the state, are licensed through the California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Winnetka

  • Winnetka's climate, like that of the rest of the Valley, is warm and dry most of the year. Summer highs average 85 degrees in September, while December and January average lows of 44 degrees. This area of Southern California gets 16.5 inches of rain a year, on average, though frequent droughts make rainfall unpredictable in any given year. Summer dust and smog can be an issue for some seniors with respiratory disorders like COPD or asthma.
  • The cost of living in Winnetka is an average of 91 percent above the national average in most categories of spending. Healthcare is more affordable than most other expenses here, at up to 7 percent less expensive than the average national cost.
  • Crime rates are very low in Winnetka. Rates for even relatively minor offenses here are less than half the national average, while violent crime rates are even less common. The neighboring communities, such as Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley, are similarly safe.
  • The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) provides transportation to virtually all of the communities in the San Fernando Valley, including Winnetka. The Metro operates eight routes through Winnetka specifically, though most of these are en route to other communities. Seniors age 60 and up ride at a discount with valid ID, as do riders with disabilities. Disabled ride and on-demand service are available, though these usually have to be booked at least a day in advance.
  • The Winnetka area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as West Hills Hospital and Medical Center and UCLA Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Los Angeles 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.

Paying for Assisted Living in Winnetka
