    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kings County

    Around 150,000 people live within the borders of Kings County, and one out of every 10 is 65 or older. In 2015, an estimated 10.3 percent of these seniors were diagnosed with dementia. For families and their loved ones who are living with dementia, deciding when the time is right to move into a memory care facility can be difficult for everyone involved. To make the process easier, Kings County has two memory care providers, known as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly, available to address families' concerns and provide seniors with compassionate 24-hour care.

    • Kings County is more affordable than many parts of California, with an overall cost of living that is about 70 percent below the state average. For many seniors in memory care facilities and their families, medical expenses are a top concern. It may help to know that median healthcare costs in Kings County are 12 percent cheaper than the California state average and 19 percent cheaper than the national average.
    • On a scale of one to 100, Kings County has a violent crime rate of 65 and a property crime rate of 62.1. Compared to the national average rates of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively, Kings County's crime rates are significantly higher. While all memory care facilities are designed with security in mind, families who are concerned about crime may want to ask a facility what precautions it takes to prevent its residents from wandering and keep them safe. 
    • Memory care facilities in Kings County may have secure yards that residents can use to exercise or simply take in the region's bountiful sunshine. In a typical year, Kings County has 267 sunny days, no snow and only 9 inches of rain. 
    • Income and sales taxes can impact the bottom line for seniors and families budgeting for memory care. Retirement income in California is taxable with the exception of Social Security benefits, and Kings County's combined sales tax rate is 7.25 percent.
