    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kentfield

    Kentfield is a suburb of San Francisco, California. This is a state where over 650,000 residents have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Kentfield has a population of 7,000, and 23 percent of this population is seniors aged 65 and over, some of whom may need care in one of the area's handful of memory care facilities. 

    Memory care facilities in Marin County, as in all of California, are regulated by the state's Department of Social Services. These statues stipulate certain training for staff, 24-hour supervision, and are applicable to both stand-alone memory care facilities and those that are part of a larger assisted living campus. 

    • Temperatures in Kentfield are moderate year-round, with little fluctuation between summer and winter. Breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean moderate even the highest temperatures. Lows in January are around 42, while July highs reach just the mid-70s. Seniors in memory care with health conditions alleviated by warm weather should find relief here. 
    • Kentfield residents are affected by the poor air quality in nearby San Francisco. This metro area is affected by nearby Los Angeles, with some of the highest pollution and ozone levels in the nation. These levels are determined by the American Lung Association. Those in memory care with chronic respiratory conditions should take this into account. 
    • Kentfield's cost of living is higher than the national average, although housing costs that are more than 10 times the rest of the nation are the reason. These high housing costs may affect memory care fees, as the cost of doing business for many of these places may increase. Groceries and healthcare are right around the national average. 
    • The San Francisco area, including Kentfield, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the San Francisco Brain Health Center - California Pacific Medical Center and the University of California - San Francisco Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
