Torrance offers an attractive lifestyle for retirees, though it can be a bit expensive. The city’s overall cost of living is high compared to the national average, though this is largely due to housing costs. In fact, seniors can benefit from very affordable health care costs. Assisted living costs an average of $5,250 per month. While this rate is higher than what seniors might pay in the average U.S. city, it’s on par with the California state median.
