    What to Consider About Memory Care in Carpinteria

    Carpinteria is a small seaside colony, about halfway between Ventura and Santa Barbara, where roughly 13,600 people live within a few miles of the beach. About 18 percent of Carpinteria's residents are seniors age 65 and over, some of whom have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. The town has four memory care facilities to provide a safe, comfortable home for seniors with Alzheimer's, Huntington's disease or advanced forms of Parkinson's who need full-time care and help following a regular treatment plan.

    Staff at these sites often help seniors with dementia through physical and mental therapy, as well as assisting with activities of daily living, such as hygiene and personal care. Memory care, like assisted living and skilled nursing care, is regulated at the state level as long-term residential care facilities and licensed under the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program.

    • The climate in Carpinteria is typical of Southern California's beach communities. Warm summers average 76 degrees for highs, and average winter lows are 46. Carpinteria gets 19.5 inches of rain in a year, though California's droughts sometimes dry the surrounding hills and raise dust that can aggravate some seniors' COPD.
    • The cost of living in Carpinteria is a little more than double the national average cost of living. Much of the extra expense in Carpinteria comes from the relatively high cost of housing, where the median home cost is $858,200. Healthcare, on the other hand, is around 12 percent less expensive than the national average.
    • Violent crime in Carpinteria is especially low, and theft, while more common, is still unusual. Overall, the crime rate is close to half the national rate.
    • The Carpinteria area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Ventura County Medical Center and Aurora Vista Del Mar Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
