    What to Consider About Memory Care in Chula Vista

    More than 10 percent of Chula Vista's 210,000 residents are 65 years of age or older, and while many live independently, some require specialized memory care and support for dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's. Throughout the state of California, an estimated 650,000 seniors have been diagnosed with some form of dementia. 

    In Chula Vista and its surrounding areas, 19 memory care facilities provide memory care to seniors who require it. The California Department of Social Services regulates memory care facilities, which are officially known in California as residential care facilities, and they often provide both memory care and assisted living services. 

    • The Chula Vista area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Scripps Mercy Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Chula Vista is a relatively safe city with low crime rates, so seniors and their loved ones can live in the area without too much concern for safety. Residents have only a one in 62 chance of becoming the victim of a violent crime and a one in 379 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime. By comparison, the average California resident has a one in 39 chance of becoming the victim of a violent crime and a one in 225 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime — both higher than in Chula Vista.
    • All forms of retirement income are fully taxed at the state level in California, which has some of the highest tax rates in the country. If seniors and their families have a tight budget for memory care, they may wish to consider a state that's more retirement-friendly tax-wise.
    • Minimal precipitation and a comfortable year-round climate make Chula Vista a popular destination for retirees. Throughout January, the city's average low temperature is only 45 degrees so seniors can enjoy spending time outdoors more often than in many other U.S. cities.
