What to Consider About Memory Care in Fullerton

Fullerton is situated in Orange County, California, where the Alzheimer's Association reports that 84,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. This illness, which is the leading cause of dementia, primarily affects those who are 65 and over. In Fullerton, this demographic makes up about 13 percent of the 140,000-person population.

Fullerton is home to four memory care facilities, and there are nearly three dozen more in nearby cities. While some of these facilities are independent and provide care solely for those with dementia, others are housed within residential care facilities for the elderly. In Fullerton, as in all of California, memory care facilities are monitored by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Fullerton

  • While Social Security income is not taxed in California, all other forms of retirement income are fully taxable. This may affect how much money can be budgeted toward memory care expenses in Fullerton. 
  • The air quality in Orange County is relatively poor, which may be a concern for families whose senior loved one has a chronic condition like asthma, COPD or cardiovascular disease. The county was given an F for ozone pollution and a D for 24-hour particle pollution from the American Lung Association. 
  • While the overall cost of living in Fullerton is nearly 80 percent higher than it is elsewhere in the country, healthcare expenses in this city are about 10 percent below the national median. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care. 
  • Fullerton has comfortable year-round temperatures, making the city ideal for seniors who enjoy relaxing outdoors in their memory care facility's secured courtyard. Summer highs are in the mid-80s, winter lows are in the mid-40s and the region receives just 14 inches of annual rainfall.
