Lancaster is among the cheapest places to live in California, as well as in the Los Angeles region, with a cost of living that’s well below state and regional averages. While the state income tax rate is high, seniors don’t pay taxes on their Social Security benefits, which may make it easier for those who rely primarily on this type of income to afford long-term care.

According to the Genworth 2021 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living facilities in this city charge an estimated $5,250 per month for services. This is higher than the national median, but state programs, such as the Assisted Living Waiver, may help qualified individuals afford monthly care costs.
