The city of Norwalk is a rapidly developing community located only 17 miles southeast of Los Angeles. This 9.35 square-mile city, with a population of just over 100,000 residents, was once known as the dairy “Heart of the Valleys.” Now, Norwalk is a very desirable suburb of Southern California’s largest city.
Norwalk assisted living residents will enjoy superb weather in a city that is reported to have 265 days of sunshine per year. Due to the moderating effect of the ocean, temperatures are also cooler and more pleasant in Norwalk than in the more inland areas of Los Angeles.
Norwalk senior living residents are welcome to make use of any of the 14 clean and safe parks available to the city’s community members. A favorite is the aptly named Norwalk Park with its small zoo and a museum.
Norwalk Town Square is a premier, one-stop shopping complex housing all the most popular modern stores. Shoppers seeking a more unique retail environment may try the Norwalk Indoor Swap Meet, or its larger counterpart held in nearby Santa Fe Springs. The bordering cities of Downey and Cerritos also offer excellent shopping.
For entertainment, the Norwalk Cultural Arts Center offers a variety of special events, programs and instructional classes, and is also the home of the Mary Paxon Art Gallery. Norwalk senior living residents can explore the city’s past by visiting the free Hargitt House Museum.
The Norwalk Senior Citizens’ Center is a beautiful and spacious facility geared for the enjoyment and leisure of the city’s 50+ population. The Center offers a variety of unique recreational and social experiences in a warm and caring environment.
Further activity choices in the city include the Norwalk Aquatics pavilion, offering special rates for seniors wishing to cool off and stay fit at a low-impact water aerobics class, and the Norwalk Regional Library, which welcomes eager readers of all ages.
It is difficult to enjoy all that the city has to offer if you are not feeling well, which is why Norwalk assisted living residents are fortunate to have easy access to quality medical care. Devoted to the community for over 50 years, Coast Plaza Hospital takes pride in their ability to combine personalized attention with the most advanced medical technology available.
This facility is proud of their comprehensive Alzheimer’s program aimed at evaluating and treating memory loss, and is also certified by the Federal Government’s Medicare Program and State of California’s Medi-Cal program.
The eight bus lines of the Norwalk Transit System (NTS) serve Norwalk and its adjacent communities. A morning and afternoon Dial-a-Ride service is available for eligible Norwalk senior living residents. NTS offers taxicab vouchers to registered Dial-A-Ride patrons who need to travel during the evening hours. The Los Angeles MTA provides both bus and train service from Norwalk, as does Metrolink.
Norwalk is a warm and friendly place that offers a peaceful living experience just beyond the borders of one of the world’s most dynamic cities. To view a list of senior living communities in Norwalk, visit our Norwalk Assisted Living page.
