    What to Consider About Memory Care in Chico

    Chico is located in Butte County in northern California and is home to just over 93,000 residents, more than 12 percent of whom are over the age of 65. While many of the seniors in Chico continue to live independently, those with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia may require care in one of the area's residential memory care facilities. Seniors who need this level of care can choose from eight facilities in the area, six of which are located in Chico and two that are located nearby in Oroville and Paradise. Several of these facilities are housed in the same community as assisted living facilities, as both levels of care are subject to similar rules and regulations in California. Throughout the state, communities that provide memory care and assisted living are officially known as residential care facilities. 

    • The Chico area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Enloe Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Property crime rates in Chico are nearly double the state average, which may cause seniors and their loved ones to feel unsafe in the area. An average of 40.31 property crimes occurs per 1,000 residents each year in Chico, while only 25.53 property crimes occur per 1,000 residents on average throughout the state. This means that residents of Chico have a one in 25 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime, while the average California resident has only a one in 39 chance. 

    • Seniors with limited funds may wish to consider tax rates before settling on memory care in California. Retirement and social security income are fully taxed at the state level, which is one of the highest tax rates in the country.

    • Chico's air quality has been assigned a passing grade by the American Lung Association. That means that seniors who have breathing difficulties or respiratory illness can live comfortably in the area without worrying that the air they breathe may worsen their condition.
