Assisted Living in Carlsbad, California

Carlsbad is a relatively safe mid-size California city, which makes it a popular destination for seniors and others who can afford the high cost of living. However, residents of assisted living facilities in the area are somewhat sheltered from the high median home cost — the largest contributor to cost of living — and many locals pay less for health care. The price tag on Carlsbad has done little to slow its population growth, outpacing the state and country by roughly 50%, including a higher percentage of people aged 65 and over.

The cost of care is 5.5% higher in Carlsbad — at $4,750 per month — when compared to California’s average. It’s also higher than the national average by roughly 17%, although the city compares more favorably at the regional level.

Note: Data for Carlsbad was unavailable, so data for the wider San Diego region was used instead.
