    What to Consider About Memory Care in Berkeley

    In California, an estimated 650,000 people age 65 or older had Alzheimer's disease in 2018, and this number is projected to increase by nearly 30 percent by the year 2025. In the city of Berkeley, seniors in this age group account for about 13.5 percent of all residents. As this population's need for memory care services has grown, more than 120 memory care facilities have opened in Berkeley and surrounding communities to serve seniors with dementia.

    Memory care facilities in Berkeley and throughout California are formally called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs). Some memory care facilities are stand-alone facilities, while others are a distinct part of larger assisted living communities. Any RCFE providing memory care services must meet special requirements, including providing staff with specific training on how to care for persons with dementia.  

    • Seniors living in Berkeley can enjoy a sunshiny, temperate year-round climate. In any given year, the city receives an average of 256 days of sunshine, compared to the U.S. average of only 205 days. Berkeley's average summer high is a comfortable 73 degrees Fahrenheit, while its average winter low is a mild 43 degrees Fahrenheit. 
    • The Berkeley area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the University of California, San Francisco's Memory and Aging Center Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Berkeley's high cost of living may be a barrier for seniors on a budget. Overall, living in Berkeley costs 187.5 percent more than the U.S. national average cost of living.
    • In Berkeley, as in the rest of California, senior citizens' Social Security retirement income is not taxed. However, pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts, such as 401(k) plans, are fully taxed.
