Assisted living facilities are distinguished from other long-term care facility types by the level of medical support and intervention that they provide. ALFs provide full-time housing and daily support for senior residents not requiring supervision from nurses or other medical personnel. The following list highlights the top 20 ALFs in California by reported bed count.

How many assisted living facilities are in California?

With 1,233 available beds, La Costa Glen Carlsbad – Assisted Living has the highest reported bed count of all 6,872 California ALFs tracked by Definitive Healthcare. Nineteen of the top 20 facilities in the U.S. are based in California—most likely due to the state’s high population density and increasing population of elderly patients.

Five of the top assisted living facilities—including La Costa Glen Carlsbad, Stoneridge Creek Pleasanton, Morningside of Fullerton, The Glen at Scripps Ranch, and University Village Thousand Oaks—are member facilities of the Continuing Life network.
