Long Beach (CA) Senior Living Communities
With its pleasant Mediterranean climate and proximity to endless cultural attractions, Long Beach makes an ideal city for retirees. Before you search through our comprehensive list of Ling Beach senior living options, see what this beach city has to offer.
In case you’re not familiar with Southern California’s climate, here’s a primer: 345 days of sunshine every year, summer temperatures ranging from 75 to 85 degrees with a cool Pacific breeze. Winter highs climb to the upper 60s while lows are in the mid-40s.
The Long Beach skyline is probably most recognized for the three red and black smokestacks of the Queen Mary resting in Long Beach Harbor. This 1,019-foot former ocean liner is now a hotel and museum and major tourist attraction. Another popular attraction is the Aquarium of the Pacific, a 5-acre site that includes 11,000 animals and 50 exhibits representing life in the Pacific Ocean. The Long Beach Museum of Art sits atop a bluff overlooking the Long Beach Harbor and Pacific Ocean. Other cultural attractions include the Long Beach Opera, Ballet and Symphony Orchestra.
With beautiful year-round weather what better way to spend the day than in one of the city’s 92 parks sitting on 3,100 acres. Walk the trails of Eldorado Nature Center. Play golf at one of the five municipal courses. Participate in senior programs at one of the six community centers. The 210-acre Recreation Park has two golf courses, a tennis center, lawn bowling, and a variety of fitness classes.
Like other coastal cities in California, Long Beach’s cost of living—34% above the national average—will stretch the wallets of seniors on a budget. However, the city’s senior living options are not equally exorbitant. For example, a one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,500 a month (the national average is $3,250), according to a Genworth Financial survey of long-term care. A private room in a nursing home averages $218 a month, while a semi-private averages $193.
