This can cast smoke and dust that seniors with asthma could have issues managing, even inside climate-controlled memory care facilities. Winters are mild, with average lows of just 40 degrees overnight and 14 inches of rain annually.
- Tustin's cost of living is 89 percent higher than the national median, though it's only around 10 percent higher than the average cost of living in California across most categories. Much of this is in an elevated housing cost, which only weakly affects seniors in memory care. Healthcare, however, is a solid 11 percent less expensive in Tustin than it is elsewhere in the country.
- Crime in Tustin is far lower than in the rest of the United States. Crime in all categories is one-third lower than the national rate. Property crime rates are significantly lower than in other areas near Los Angeles.
