    What to Consider About Memory Care in Costa Mesa

    The total population of Costa Mesa is about 114,000, with a senior population of about 10 percent. The Costa Mesa area has 54 memory care facilities to support those seniors with Alzheimer's and related memory conditions. Six of these facilities are within the city limits and the other 48 are in nearby cities like Newport Beach. California regulates memory care facilities through the Department of Social Services, which classifies them as a type of assisted living facility. Seniors in Costa Mesa will also find plenty of shopping opportunities in the South Coast Plaza retail center, noted for both its size and architecture.

    • Costa Mesa has a semi-arid climate, which can be beneficial to seniors with joint conditions. It receives just 12 inches of rain per year, none in the summer months. Costa Mesa has a rating of 88 on the Sperling Comfort Index compared to the national average of 54, meaning this city has an unusually large number of sunny days with low humidity. This index uses a scale of one to 100, with a higher number indicating a more comfortable climate.
    • The cost of living is particularly high in Costa Mesa, even for southern California. Housing costs 4.28 times the U.S. average. However, the costs of health care, utilities and groceries are average or below average.
    • The rate of property crimes in Costa Mesa is 42.6 on a scale of one to 100 (high crime). By comparison, the state average for property crimes is 40.9 and the national average is 38.1. On the other hand, the violent crime rate in Costa Mesa is only 18.3, compared to the state average of 33.7 and the national average of 31.1.
    • Costa Mesa’s low air quality is a cause of some concern for seniors with pre-existing respiratory conditions. The city’s score on the EPA’s National Air Toxics Assessment (NATA) score is 45, compared to the national average of 58. This score is based on a scale from one to 100, with 100 indicating the best air quality.
