Arroyo Grande is a small community on the Central California coast with a large senior community, with 23.3% of its approximate population of 18,500 comprised of older adults aged 65 and over. Those seeking warm, pleasant summers, mild winters, a lower-than-average crime rate and a California coastal lifestyle experience should consider retiring in Arroyo Grande. 

Even though the cost of living in Arroyo Grande is higher than both the California and national averages, residents of assisted living facilities in Arroyo Grande are only slightly higher than California’s statewide average. 

At an average of $5,300 per month, according to Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living in Arroyo is just $5 per month higher than the California average of $5,250 but $700 higher than the national median. Costs are higher in San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley and the southern end of the state in El Centro.
