Information About Assisted Living Facility in Carlsbad

Carlsbad is a small, scenic city located on the California coastline, north of San Diego. This 40-square mile area boasts seven miles of beautiful beaches, but was once known for an entirely different type of water. In the 1800’s, trains regularly stopped in the city so that the passengers could enjoy fresh mineral water served from John Frazier’s well. This delicious liquid was found to have similar properties to the water of Europe’s famous Karlsbad spa, which inspired developers with a perfect name for the city. Residents of assisted living in Carlsbad will be welcomed warmly in this economically advanced city of just over 100,000 people.

Carlsbad Recreation

There are three natural lagoons preserved for the enjoyment of Carlsbad residents. Buena Vista Lagoon is an excellent spot for bird watching, while Agua Hedionda allows relaxing shoreline fishing. Batiquitos Lagoon offers both wildlife viewing and fishing. And for those who like their water salty, Carlsbad has no shortage of state beaches. Carlsbad is a shopper’s paradise, with a wide variety of choices. Seniors enjoying assisted living in Carlsbad can find everything from discounted goods to antiques at these many exciting locations: Village Faire Shopping Centre, The Forum at Carlsbad, Carlsbad Premium Outlets, Carlsbad Village Art and Antique Mall and Carlsbad Village, which offers entertainment and a Farmers’ Market in addition to a collection of old, European-style shops.

Carlsbad Activities

Carlsbad is most famous for being the home of the LegoLand theme park, but seniors without young grandchildren may prefer a visit to The Flower Fields, Sea Life Aquarium, New Village Arts Theatre or the Barrio Museum. Music enthusiasts can rock out at The Museum of Making Music. The Carlsbad Senior Center has been providing social opportunities for residents of assisted living in Carlsbad since 1974. These days, the facility offers a fitness room, a computer lab and various special events in addition to their regular classes and programs.

Carlsbad Medical Facilities

The cities of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista have joined together to establish their own full-service hospital, Tri-City Medical Center, which offers valuable community education classes to residents of assisted living in Carlsbad. Palomar Medical Center is also available in nearby Escondido. This facility provides state-of-the-art cardiac care and oncology programs, along with North County's only trauma center.

Carlsbad Transportation

The North County Transport District (NCTD) moves seniors to and from communities of assisted living in Carlsbad via bus and train with their BREEZE, SPRINTER and COASTER services. NCTD’s paratransit service is called LIFT. The company also offers seniors the benefit of their Transit Buddy program, in which volunteers give clients the support and confidence they need to learn how to use public transportation. The Carlsbad Senior Center also provides daily, weekly or monthly transportation to their facility and various shopping destinations.

Cost of Assisted Living in Carlsbad

Even though it is a beautiful place, the cost of assisted living in Carlsbad is fairly low. In fact, the median cost of a one-bedroom unit is only $3,500 a month,* placing it below the average median of other major cities in California. Since there are some locations with waterfront views and other similar amenities, there is quite a range of prices for assisted living in Carlsbad.
