    What to Consider About Memory Care in Carlsbad

    A warm coastal climate and picturesque views make Carlsbad a popular retirement destination among seniors, who make up more than 15 percent of the city's population. For those seniors who require memory care for dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease, the city has four facilities to choose from, and an additional 12 are in nearby places such as Oceanside, Vista and San Marcos. 

    In Carlsbad, as well as the rest of California, facilities that provide memory care to the elderly are known as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs). Many RCFs offer both memory care and assisted living services as provisions for both levels of care are similar. 

    • The overall cost of living in Carlsbad is more than double the national average. While the biggest factor is housing, seniors can expect some inflation in the price of memory care services and room and board. Those who have limited income might want to consider memory care in a less expensive location.
    • Seniors and their loved ones can feel a sense of security living in Carlsbad. Crime rates are much lower than state averages; only 19.52 property crimes and 1.87 violent crimes occur per 1,000 residents in the city each year. Throughout the state, average crimes rates are much higher at 25.53 property crimes and 4.45 violent crimes per 1,000 residents. 
    • Carlsbad is ranked fifth on the American Lung Association's list of the most polluted cities in the United States. Seniors who suffer from a respiratory illness or other breathing problems might find their condition negatively affected by the air in Carlsbad.
    • The Carlsbad area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia disorders such as Carlsbad Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
