What to Consider About Memory Care in Corona

California’s Department of Social Services, specifically the Community Care Licensing Division, monitors the compliance of memory care providers with state regulations and rigorous quality standards. It oversees a variety of factors, such as staffing levels and safety measures, and protects those with cognitive impairments from neglect and abuse by ensuring they have access to services suited to their needs.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Corona

 

  • The weather in the Riverside area is warm most of the year. Even in December, the coldest month, seniors can expect a reasonable 55 degrees Fahrenheit. As in the rest of Southern California, summers are hot, nearing 80 degrees Fahrenheit in August. Fortunately, memory care communities in the city offer air-conditioned living spaces and indoor activities.

 

  • Income taxes pose a financial burden for retirees in California, as the state levies high tax rates, from 1% to 12.3%, for most forms of retirement income. Although Social Security income is exempt at the state level, federal taxes still apply. However, transitioning to a residential care setting can alleviate concerns related to substantial property taxes, and eligible seniors can also benefit from relief programs.

 

  • Corona’s population experiences high levels of ozone and particle pollution. Fortunately, some long-term care communities have air purification systems in common areas and seniors’ rooms, reducing exposure to harmful pollutants and minimizing respiratory issues for those already grappling with memory-related challenges.

 

  • In Corona, violent crime stands at just 8.2 on a 100-point index, significantly lower than the U.S. average of 22.7. As for property-related offenses, the city receives a score of 32.6, still below the national norm of 35.4. For seniors considering memory care, a move to Corona offers access to quality care and a greater sense of safety and peace of mind.

 

  • Seniors in Corona are close to a variety of reputable health care facilities. The Corona Regional Medical Center is located in the city center, with services ranging from physical and occupational therapies to diabetes management and emergency care. Less than 10 miles to the east, Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center connects residents with professionals specializing in neurology, orthopedics and hearing care.

 

  • The city’s overall cost of living is 31.2% above the U.S. average but 18.7% below the California norm. Expenses such as housing and groceries are reasonably priced, at 20.1% and 3.7% below the state average, respectively. In addition, locals spend about 12.7% less on health care bills than expected nationwide.

 

Paying for Memory Care in Corona

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates. No national database currently tracks memory care costs in the United States, so we've estimated the monthly memory care costs listed below by adding 25% to the rates listed in Genworth's 2021 Cost of Care Survey.

In Corona, seniors can expect to spend about $6,563 per month on memory care expenses, although the exact amount depends on their chosen community’s services and amenities.

The Cost of Memory Care in Nearby Cities

Memory care costs in Corona are on par with the median rate in California, but 16.7% higher than the national norm. The city charges more than nearby Riverside, where residents pay 23.8% less. However, rates run higher in Oxnard and San Diego, exceeding Corona by $625 and $281, respectively. In short, prices in Corona fall within an accessible range for seniors seeking quality long-term care in California.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Memory care, which specializes in assisting those with dementia, is priced at around $6,563 per month. For 9.9% less, in-home care and home health care provide essential services from the senior’s own home, with the latter also including basic medical care. The expected rate significantly drops for adult day services, at $4,911 less than memory care, due to its limited operational hours, while assisted living communities offer both intensive support and an independent setting for $1,313 less. Nursing care, which costs 39% more than memory care, provides access to specialized medical services and around-the-clock nursing supervision.
