    What to Consider About Memory Care in Carson

    Carson is located in Los Angeles County, California, where nearly 150,000 seniors have been diagnosed with dementia. There are 14 memory care facilities to support seniors with dementia in the Carson area, where more than 15 percent of the population is aged 65 years or older.

    These facilities, known officially in California as residential care facilities (RCFs), are often housed alongside assisted living facilities. This is because the regulations for memory care and assisted living are nearly the same. The California Department of Social Services is responsible for overseeing the operation of RCFs. 

    • The Carson area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • The air quality in Los Angeles County is known to be the worst in the country. Seniors, particularly those who've been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, respiratory illness or certain cancers, may find that simply breathing the air in Carson affects their condition.
    • The climate in Carson is moderate throughout the year with an average high temperature in July of 79 degrees and an average low temperature in January of 48 degrees. Some seniors and their families might want to inquire about outdoor space when touring memory care facilities to ensure that residents have the chance to enjoy the weather on warmer days.
    • The cost of living in Carson is nearly 70 percent higher than the average U.S. city. Some seniors and their families may find that costs in the city are too expensive. For those with tight budgets, it may be a good idea to consider memory care facilities in a less expensive part of the state.
