    What to Consider About Memory Care in Irvine

    In California, an estimated 650,000 seniors live with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. In a city such as Irvine, where more than 10 percent of the population is over 65 years old, the need for memory care facilities is considerable. These facilities, which provide specialized residential care to seniors who suffer from dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's, are often housed alongside assisted living facilities, which are officially known as "Residential Care Facilities" (RCFs) in the state of California. 

    Seniors who require residential memory care have 60 facilities to choose from in the Irvine area. Ten of these facilities are located in Irvine and 50 more are located in nearby cities such as Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. 

    • Seniors can live in Irvine without fearing for their safety, as crime rates in the area are considerably low. Only 0.65 violent crimes and 15.86 property crimes occur per 1,000 residents in Irvine each year. These rates are much lower than even the state averages, which are 4.45 for violent crimes and 25.53 for property crimes per 1,000 residents each year.
       
    • Seniors who are on a limited budget may want to consider California's tax rates before settling on a memory care facility in Irvine. California's income tax rates are some of the highest rates in the nation, and the state fully taxes all forms of retirement income, including pension and retirement savings. 

    • The Irvine area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia disorders such as Hoag Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors will appreciate Irvine's year-round climate. The area gets very little precipitation and has moderate temperatures during the entire year. Throughout July, the average high temperature is a mild 83 degrees Fahrenheit, and in January, the average low is a comfortable 46 degrees. By comparison, the national July high is 86 degrees and the national January low is 22 degrees, on average.
