Information About Assisted Living Facility in Whittier

Located just 12 miles southeast of Los Angeles near the San Gabriel Valley, the City of Whittier has a rich history stretching back to Spanish settlement of the area in 1784. Whittier’s modern history began more than one hundred years later when a group of Quakers bought several acres of land in Whittier, naming the city after John Greenleaf Whittier, a famous Quaker poet. Seniors who choose assisted living in Whittier take advantage of the intimacy of a small college town while benefiting from the area’s close proximity to the attractions and services in Los Angeles and the rest of Southern California.

Whittier Recreation

As Whittier sits on land formerly owned by Pio Pico, the last Mexican Governor of California, visitors can view one of California’s few remaining 19th-century structures, the fully-restored Pio Pico Adobe Ranch House at Pio Pico State Historic Park. Residents of assisted living in Whittier who prefer window shopping to bird watching head north to Uptown Whittier. The historic neighborhood at the foot of the Whittier Hills offers a selection of restaurants and retailers along tree-lined, cobble-stoned streets, perfect for leisurely weekday strolls.

Whittier Activities

Taking advantage of the its location next to Los Angeles, the city has sponsored Whittier Nights at the Hollywood Bowl for the past 60 years. Free volunteer charter buses are available to transport residents from communities of assisted living in Whittier to various concerts featuring an exciting rotation of music, dance and theater at the famed Hollywood Bowl concert hall. For friends and fun, Whittier seniors head to either the Parnell Park Community and Senior Center or Whittier Senior Center. From woodworking to exercise classes to movie screenings and support groups, the city of Whittier provides a multitude of programs to keep its seniors active and engaged in life.

Whittier Medical Facilities

For over 50 years, residents of assisted living in Whittier have been taken care of by the more than 500 physicians at Whittier Hospital Medical Center. The 178-bed hospital runs a 24-hour emergency department, embraces diversity through its Hispanic and Asian program, and engages the Whittier senior community through participation in its “Golden Years Senior Club.” The club is free and open to seniors age 55 and older, offering a series of fun events, educational activities and discounts to seniors who actively work to stay healthy and happy.

Whittier Transportation

Traveling through Whittier and the surrounding areas is made easy by a robust public transportation industry. The city is served by buses from three major transportation agencies: Foothill Transit, Montebello Bus Lines and Norwalk Transit. Seniors who need to travel from communities of assisted living in Whittier to medical and dental appointments outside the city can use the Whittier Taxi Voucher program, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With an abundance of public space, access to quality transportation and medical services, and a friendly community founded on Quaker principles, assisted living in Whittier offers seniors a peaceful and intimate place to call home.
