What to Consider About Memory Care in Daly City

The  California Department of Social Services, Senior Care Licensing Program, licenses and monitors memory care facilities in Daly City and the rest of the state. These facilities are licensed as assisted living facilities and follow the same guidelines related to nutrition services, medication management and care planning. Additionally, they comply with dementia-specific rules to promote residents’ safety and enrichment.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Daly City

 

  • Daly City is listed on the AARP Age-Friendly Network and ranks among the top 50% of U.S. cities for its range of health care amenities, multi use neighborhoods and transportation services. This may provide benefits for those moving to the city for dementia care as well as those visiting local loved ones.
  • The air quality in Daly City is subpar, which may negatively affect the health of some seniors, particularly those living with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions. The American Lung Association gives the region a passing grade for annual particle pollution but an F for 24-hour particle pollution. Additionally, the city earns a C for ozone pollution, indicating moderate levels of smog. Fortunately, memory care facilities typically feature plenty of indoor activities and amenities, helping residents stay busy when outdoor conditions are unfavorable.
  • Local seniors pay some of the highest state income tax rates in the nation on nearly all types of retirement income, including public and private pensions and withdrawals from investment accounts. However, Social Security benefits are exempt for all beneficiaries, which may provide significant savings for those who rely on this form of income.
  • Seton Medical Center, located in Daly City proper, is a 357-bed hospital that specializes in geriatric behavioral health and wound, cardiovascular and stroke care. Health care costs in this city trend about 3% below national norms, which may make local medical services financially viable for seniors managing chronic conditions.
  • Daly City’s weather is very mild throughout the year, promoting a therapeutic environment for seniors. Daytime temperatures range from 57 degrees in the winter to close to 70 degrees in late summer, and residents see about 26 inches of annual rainfall.
