    What to Consider About Memory Care in Alameda

    Around one-tenth of U.S. residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease live in California. Over 14 percent of Alameda's 79,000 people are aged 65 and over, and the city has one memory care facility that helps cater to those with dementia and other cognitive diseases. A further 13 can be found in nearby communities.

    In California, residential care facilities for the elderly refer to memory care, assisted living and continuing care facilities. All facilities that offer dementia care must meet additional requirements around staff numbers, staff training and building specifications.

    • Seniors with respiratory problems may find their health affected by poor air quality in Alameda County, including Alameda. The American Lung Association gives the county a failing grade for ozone pollution. Although short-term particle pollution is lower, the C grade indicates it may still cause difficulties for some seniors.
    • Alameda's climate is appealing to seniors who like to spend time in the sunshine. The city has 259 sunny days each year and no extreme temperatures. In July, the average high is 71 degrees, and the January low averages 44, giving the city a comfortable climate year-round.
    • If you are funding your loved one's memory care through a retirement fund or pension, California's tax policies may impact your budget. Although Social Security income is exempt, all other forms of retirement income are subject to income tax. The state also has one of the highest sales taxes in the country.
    • Although Alameda's crime rate is about average for cities of a similar size, it is still higher than 73 percent of California's towns and cities. Most memory care facilities have measures in place to ensure the safety of their residents, but you may wish to inquire about the specifics if you have particular concerns.
