    What to Consider About Memory Care in La Jolla

    La Jolla is a sunny, pleasant beachfront community just up the Pacific Coast Highway from San Diego, CA. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the state of California is home to just under 40 million people — 15 percent seniors over age 65, and 650,000 of whom have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Many of these seniors live in specialized memory care facilities, which provide long-term residential care for seniors who can no longer take care of themselves.

    The California Department of Health and Human Services publishes guidelines for senior care in all of the state's residential care facilities, including the 18 licensed memory care sites in La Jolla. Seniors living in these facilities, which are sometimes known as residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs) by the department, get round the clock supervision, meal preparation and engaging games and tasks to keep their minds as active as possible.

    • La Jolla is just a few miles up the coast from San Diego and shares its weather. Summer highs this close to the ocean average just 76 degrees, while winter lows average 48 degrees. La Jolla gets just 10 inches of rain a year, and the clean ocean air and low allergen counts make this an easy place for most seniors with COPD or asthma.
    • The cost of living in the San Diego area is roughly 44 percent higher than the national average. La Jolla is an upscale beach community just up the road from the city, where prices are often higher still. Much of the cost of living in La Jolla is contained in the relatively high-value housing market. Seniors who get health care in the area, however, typically run up to seven percent higher bills than the national average, and groceries can be similarly expensive.
    • Crime rates in La Jolla, and in the larger San Diego area where stats are collected, are roughly consistent with the rest of California's figures, though noticeably lower in most categories. Violent crime rates here are about 10 percent lower than California's average, while property crimes are close to 15 percent lower.
    • The La Jolla area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Scripps La Jolla Hospitals and UC San Diego Health-Jacobs Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
