What to Consider About Memory Care in Buena Park

The Senior Care Licensing Program — part of the California Department of Social Services — oversees memory care communities throughout the state. Through a network of regional offices, staff members grant operational licenses and ensure that facilities follow regulations. Team members also make sure memory care communities implement robust measures to promote health, safety and quality senior care.    

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Buena Park

  • Looking at crime data, Buena Park has fewer violent incidents than the state and nation overall; the local violent crime rate stands 2.53 points below California’s and 1.54 points lower than the U.S. statistic. However, the city’s property crime rate of 29.06 is over 5.5 points higher than state and national averages. Fortunately, memory care communities have around-the-clock staffing and extra security features, such as enclosed grounds and locked entrances, to keep seniors safe.
  • Orange County has fewer patients per doctor than the statewide outlook, with one primary care physician to 999 patients, compared to 1 to 1,240. The area also offers better-than-average access to dental professionals. La Palma Intercommunity Hospital and Anaheim Regional Medical Center serve the local population, and the city features many specialist clinics and pharmacies.   
  • Buena Park scores 55 on the AARP Livability Index, 7 points higher than the U.S. average. Additionally, per the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, Orange County comes 6th out of 58 assessed counties across the state for health outcomes and factors.
  • Residents of Buena Park typically have higher living costs than many places throughout the state and country. Locally, expenses stand around 64.9% higher than the U.S. average and 10% higher than the state norm. Furthermore, California carries high taxes for older adults. However, the California Department of Aging operates diverse assistance programs — including Medicare counseling — to help seniors maximize their incomes and reduce their economic burdens.
  • Regarding financial support, older adults may qualify for Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program. Additionally, Orange County PACE operates the joint Medicaid-Medicare Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly in Buena Park.
