The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Anaheim, CA for 2024

Anaheim in California has a population of 345,940 residents, of which 11.8% are aged 65 and over. Individuals in this bracket are at a higher risk for Alzheimer’s and other neurological conditions. According to data from the CDC, Alzheimer’s mortalities in Orange County increased by 18.98% between 2016 and 2020. Research conducted by the Alzheimer’s Association projects that the number of U.S. residents aged 65 or older living with the condition will increase to 13.8 million, barring any medical advancements that could affect this figure.

This is very suggestive that Alzheimer’s will be a greater concern for years to come. Fortunately, seniors in Anaheim have a wealth of facilities to choose from for dementia care. These are often run by experienced professionals who can help seniors with cognitive disorders manage their day-to-day lives. Many offer additional therapies, including speech and physical therapy, to help slow the progression. This guide will help readers evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of living in Anaheim, the costs of memory care, alternative options and a useful list of resources to offset the costs.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Anaheim

The Community Care Licensing Division manages licensing for senior living communities in Anaheim and the entire state of California. Additionally, they ensure that communities comply with applicable laws and regulations through complaint investigations and inspections. When it is determined that standards have not been upheld sufficiently, the CCLD submits a deficiency notice and provides education and technical support.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Anaheim

  • Anaheim has a number of 24-hour hospitals, including the West Anaheim Medical Center and Anaheim Regional Medical Center. The West Anaheim Medical Center offers Adult Subacute Care, which is ideal for seniors who do not require acute care in a typical hospital setting but who require a greater degree of medical attention than could be expected in a skilled nursing facility.
  • Residents in Anaheim can expect a warm Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunshine. The climate is less rainy than other areas along the coast of California, and on average, the region receives rainfall 35 days per year.
  • By and large, Anaheim is a safe place to live. Thanks to the high performance of local law enforcement agencies and community engagement initiatives, the crime rate is lower than the national average. Over the last two decades, there has been a downward trend in the rates of violent crime in the area.
  • The cost of living in Anaheim is high relative to the national average. This is largely reflective of the high cost of property in the area. This may not be of major concern to seniors living in memory care communities with fixed monthly costs. Groceries, healthcare and public transport are cheaper than the state average.
  • Anaheim Regional Transport, the local public transit network, offers reduced fares for citizens over the age of 65. One-way fares, day passes and long-term passes all cost over 50% less than a typical adult fare.
