    What to Consider About Memory Care in Fresno County

    Of the close to 1,000,000 people living in Fresno County in 2017, 12 percent were 65 years of age or older. Of these seniors, about 11 percent were diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. Because these diseases are progressive, affected seniors require more intensive care over time. While the decision to move into memory care is never an easy one, it may be the best choice for many seniors and their families.

    In Fresno County, there are 12 different memory care facilities, called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), from which families can choose. These facilities are licensed by the California Department of Social Services and provide compassionate, dedicated care, primarily to adults 60 years of age and older. 

    • Memory care facilities may have outdoor spaces that residents can access when the weather is nice. For seniors who prefer a warm climate, Fresno County offers hot summers, with an average high temperature of 99 degrees, and mild winters, with an average low temperature of 37 degrees.
    • A county's average cost for goods and services, such as groceries and healthcare, can affect seniors' memory care budgets. For example, groceries are about 2 percent cheaper in Fresno County than the national average and 9 percent cheaper than the California state average. Healthcare in the county, meanwhile, costs about 15 percent less than the U.S. median and 8 percent less than the state average.
    • Fresno County's air ranks among the most polluted in the nation. Due to the potential health risks, seniors may be better off staying inside their memory care facilities on days when the air quality is especially poor.
    • Fresno County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as UCSF Fresno Alzheimer and Memory Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
