The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Tustin, CA

Image 1

Tustin is located in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountain range in Orange County, CA. This community has the comforts of a midsized city, while its location within the Los Angeles metro area gives seniors access to the amenities of a major city. 

Warm and sunny weather year-round may bring relief for seniors sensitive to colder temperatures. This, and a crime rate lower than the national average contributes to Tustin’s attractiveness for retirees. Old Town Tustin embodies the town’s history with a walkable area centered around buildings from the 1880s and plenty of local shopping and dining venues. Seniors who derive most of their income from Social Security will not be subject to state income tax on these monies, although those who draw income from retirement accounts will be taxed. 

Note: The figures for Tustin were not available, so costs for the nearest metro area, Riverside, were used.
