    What to Consider About Memory Care in Concord

    Concord is a medium-sized city in Contra Costa County, across the bay from San Francisco and up the coast from Oakland. The city has 65 memory care facilities within its limits, where seniors with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease and multiple forms of dementia can be safely looked after by trained staff.

    California is home to nearly 40 million people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 14.4 percent of whom are seniors over the age of 65, and at least 650,000 of them have been diagnosed as suffering from Alzheimer's disease alone. To look after their needs, the California Department of Health and Human Services regulates and monitors the state's memory care facilities, which it calls residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs) in official documents.

    • The weather in Concord is typical of the East Bay Area, with hot summers averaging 87 degrees Fahrenheit in July, and mild winters, when the average drops to 40 degrees overnight. Concord gets 16.5 inches of rain a year, which can raise the pollen count in both spring and fall, affecting seniors with asthma and COPD especially.
    • The cost of living in Concord is 44 percent higher overall in this city than the national average. Much of that cost is in the housing, but some high prices affect seniors in memory care, such as the 23 percent higher rates for health care in Concord, relative to the national median cost.
    • Crime in Concord is divided between high numbers and low. Violent crime, for example, is close to 20 percent lower in Concord than the California average rate, while property crime is significantly more common in this part of Contra Costa County than elsewhere in California. The average Californian has a one in 225 chance of suffering a violent crime, while in Concord the figure is just one in 282. For property crime, however, the rates are reversed, with one in 28 for Concord residents and one in 39 for people living in the rest of California.
    • The Concord area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as John Muir Health Concord Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente Walnut Creek Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
