The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Garden Grove, CA for 2024

 

Alzheimer's disease is the fifth most common cause of death in people 65 and over, and the condition places a significant burden on the aged care system. While Garden Grove's population of over 169,254 residents has a slightly lower proportion of seniors at 14.1% compared to the national average of 16.8%, deaths caused by Alzheimer's continue to rise. Figures from the CDC show an 18.98% increase in mortality from 2016 to 2020 in the city, making dementia care even more prevalent.

Deaths from Alzheimer's are heartbreaking, the risk can be mitigated by ensuring loved ones with the illness receive quality memory care. Facilities providing this service have many similarities to assisted living communities but employ additional security measures and simpler floor plans to help keep residents safe. Caregivers are trained to recognize signs of agitation and mental decline while providing daily assistance and therapeutic activities that may slow loss of cognition and improve residents' well-being. 

This guide outlines the cost of memory care facilities in Garden Grove and some benefits and drawbacks of living in the city.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Garden Grove

Memory care in Garden Grove is regulated by California's Department of Social Services Community Care Licensing Division. The division provides information about facilities to families and conducts inspections and investigations to ensure memory care providers follow all regulations correctly.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Garden Grove

 

  • Garden Grove is known for its pleasant year-round climate and has a comfort index of 9.3 compared to the U.S. average of 7. The region has 70 more sunny days per year than the national average, doesn't usually have any snowfall and experiences only 13.3 inches of rain annually, making it ideal for seniors who prefer mild weather and warmer winters.
  • On a cost-of-living index where the United States is rated 100, Garden Grove has a rating of 154, indicating expenses in the city are 54% more than the national average. However, most of this figure comes from an exceptionally high cost of housing, which may not affect seniors in dementia care facilities.
  • Health care is readily available in the city. While the Garden Grove Hospital and Medical Center offers local treatment, most major health care amenities available in Los Angeles are also only a short distance by car. There are 249 physicians for every 100,000 people, which is higher than the national average of 210.
  • Garden Grove has a sales tax rate of 7.8% and an income tax rate of 8.0%, both of which are higher than the national averages of 6.2% and 4.6%. However, memory care facilities usually provide most items needed, such as groceries and toiletries, as part of monthly expenses, so seniors may not see their budgets affected too much.
  • Air quality in Garden Grove generally rates as good on most days according to the Air Quality Index, and concentrations of PM2.5 particles generally fall below WHO guideline limits. Air quality can rise to moderate on some days, which may prompt seniors with asthma to wear a mask or avoid the outdoors occasionally.
  • Crime rates are low throughout Garden Grove, giving families peace of mind. Property crimes ranked on a 100-point scale come in at 33.7, just below the U.S. average of 35.4. Violent crimes are also infrequent, ranking at 19.7 compared to the national average of 22.7.
