Hollenback offers a beautiful campus setting for its residents. The community has been around for more than 100 years, but you would never know it as they continue to enhance their facilities recently adding an independent living building with good-sized apartments. Great longevity with the caring staff.

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Los Angeles

Los Angeles (L.A.), the "City of Angels," is California's largest community and the second most populated city in the entire United States. As a major base for business, tourism and entertainment, Los Angeles is a perfect location for active seniors looking for a vibrant assisted living experience.

Los Angeles Recreation

Residents of assisted living in Los Angeles find themselves surrounded by a wide selection of parks, zoos and botanical gardens designed to offer a natural respite within the bustling city. The largest of these recreational areas is 4,000-acre Griffith Park, with its famous carousel and observatory. There's no place like L.A. for a world-class shopping experience. Seniors who choose assisted living in Los Angeles could easily find themselves browsing the latest fashions alongside movie stars at The Grove or Beverly Center. For a less glitzy, more down-to-earth excursion, visit the Westside Pavilion, Citadel Outlets or local Farmers' Market, open every day of the week.

Los Angeles Activities

There is always something to do and see in the West Coast's largest city. Art is everywhere, and communities of assisted living in Los Angeles are surrounded by a vast number of museums and attractions available in the area. The Paley Center is an especially unique place to learn about the history of entertainment, where visitors can chose their own selections to enjoy from the museum's huge archive of long-lost television and radio programs. Live performances can be enjoyed at the Pantages Theatre, the Mark Taper Forum and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Los Angeles Medical Facilities

Sorting through the many hospitals serving the area may prove a daunting task for residents of assisted living in Los Angeles. One excellent choice for quality healthcare is the multiple award-winning Cedars-Sinai, ranked in 2009 as one of America's best hospitals by U.S. News and World Report in 11 categories. In addition, the UCLA Medical Center is currently Los Angeles' top leader in geriatric care.

Los Angeles Transportation

Seniors enjoy reduced rates when riding on any of the city's top-notch public transportation options. The Metro system operates both bus and subway/light rail routes, while DASH boasts the largest fleet of buses in the city. Metrolink trains connect communities of assisted living in Los Angeles to outlying cities. Accessprovides eligible riders with curb-to-curb paratransit service seven days a week. The company offers a no-cost Travel Training program to foster independence, and Access clients may use Los Angeles fixed-route transportation services free of charge.

Cost of Assisted Living in Los Angeles

Much like the rest of the Los Angeles housing market, the cost of assisted living varies wildly depending on the neighborhood. Monthly costs for a private, one-bedroom unit range from as little as $1,500 or as much as $7,000. The median cost for such a unit is $3,500.* A senior should plan on spending a minimum of $42,000 per year for assisted living in Los Angeles.
