What to Consider About Memory Care in Jamestown
Jamestown, CA, is a small historic mining camp in Tuolumne County, near Sonora. About 25.5 percent of the region's 54,000 people are seniors age 65 and over, many of them living with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease or advanced Parkinson's disease. Seniors whose dementia has progressed to the point that they need full-time supervision and help following their doctors' treatment plans can find long-term residential care in any of Jamestown's six memory care facilities. The California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program regulates all residential care sites in the state, conducts inspections and acts on comments and concerns.
- Jamestown shares its climate with Sonora, the nearest sizable town. Summer temperatures range from a high of 92 degrees in August and September to winter lows of 32, which may be problematic for seniors who are sensitive to chilly morning air. The hilly area surrounding Jamestown gets around 35 inches of rain yearly, which keeps it green and raises tree pollen in the spring and summer.
- The cost to live in Jamestown is 21 percent higher than the national average across all categories. California, in comparison, is 69 percent more expensive than the national index. While housing can be especially pricey in Jamestown, with a median home cost of $279,500, healthcare is just about 99 percent of the national median rate.
- Jamestown's crime rate is very high, compared with crime rates in equivalent categories across the nation. Violent crime is not common here, but more minor offenses, such as larceny and other property crimes, are nearly three times more prevalent than in other U.S. cities.
- The Jamestown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Adventist Health Sonora and Angels Camp Family Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
