    What to Consider About Memory Care in Contra Costa County

    In Contra Costa County, about one in 10 seniors age 65 and over is living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. Considering that more than 15 percent of the estimated 1,147,439 people who call Contra Costa County home are age 65 and up, the demand for memory care services in the area is growing.

    In all, 21 memory care facilities are available across the county to serve the needs of seniors with dementia. In Contra Costa and throughout California, these facilities are called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) and are regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division.

    • Memory care facilities may provide residents with secure outdoor spaces where they can take in Contra Costa County's mild, sunshiny year-round climate. The county has many comfortable days in the 70s, with an average annual low temperature of 39 and a high of 90.
    • One important consideration for seniors with dementia and their families is how much money they will have left for memory care after paying taxes. In California, seniors' Social Security income isn't taxed, but pensions, 401(k) plans and other sorts of retirement income are all taxable by the state. Contra Costa also levies a sales tax of .25 percent, which is in addition to California's 6 percent state sales tax and local taxes, which vary by city
    • When choosing a location for memory care, families may want to consider the area's air quality, particularly if their senior loved ones have respiratory illnesses such as asthma or COPD, which can be exacerbated by pollutants. In Contra Costa County, the air quality indicators are mixed. The county receives passing grades for short- and long-term particle pollution but a failing grade for ozone.
    • Contra Costa County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
