What to Consider About Memory Care in Fountain Valley

Fountain Valley is a city of approximately 56,000 people located in Orange County, California. Across the county, officials estimate that over 84,000 people are affected by dementia. Most of them are seniors, part of the same 65 and older age group that makes up about 8 percent of Fountain Valley's population. 

For families considering memory care for their loved ones, many options are available from which to choose in the Fountain Valley area. More than 175 different memory care facilities are available in Fountain Valley and communities close by, such as Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach.  

Memory care facilities in Fountain Valley and throughout the state are known as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs). However, not all RCFEs provide memory care services. Facilities admitting persons diagnosed with dementia must meet additional requirements to provide safety and security.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Fountain Valley

  • For seniors who will be spending part of their day outdoors, Fountain Valley offers one of the country's most pleasant year-round climates, with average annual temperatures ranging from a low of 47 degrees Fahrenheit to a high of 78 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The Fountain Valley area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the UCI Health Memory Disorders Program, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The air in Fountain Valley may put seniors' health at risk. According to the American Lung Association, Orange County has some of the worst rates of ozone and particle pollution in the country. Seniors and their families may want to talk to their doctor about the impact of air pollution in the city, especially if respiratory conditions like COPD, asthma or emphysema are a concern.
  • The city's high cost of living may be a barrier for some seniors and their families. Overall, living costs in Fountain Valley are above the California state average and roughly twice as much as the national average.
