The Southern California city of Irvine is located approximately 40 miles southeast of central Los Angeles. Due to that proximity, it’s considered part of LA by Genworth Financial’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, which reports the average cost of assisted living in this region to be $5,250 a month. Irvine’s cost of living is 87% higher than the national average, though that statistic is dramatically unbalanced by the extremely high cost of Los Angeles-area private housing. The costs of health care, utilities and groceries are all within roughly 5% of state and national averages.
