    What to Consider About Memory Care in La Mesa

    La Mesa is a small city that's located outside of San Diego in San Diego County, and it has a population that's just over 60,000 residents. According to the Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 650,000 Californians suffer from dementia disorders, and with nearly 15 percent of La Mesa's residents being over 65 years old, there's a need in the city for memory care. Seniors requiring residential memory care services can choose one of the city's two memory care facilities or one of the 20 facilities located nearby in places such as National City, Santee and San Diego. 

    In California, provisions and regulations for memory care are very similar to the provisions and regulations for assisted living, and as such, the two levels of care are often housed in the same communities. The state officially refers to facilities that provide assisted living and memory care to the elderly as residential care facilities. 

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

    • The American Lung Association has assigned a passing grade to the air quality in the La Mesa area. That means that seniors who suffer from respiratory illness don't need to be concerned that the air they're breathing in the city will negatively affect their condition. 

    • Seniors who require frequent medical care may find living in La Mesa to be more affordable than some other cities in the area because the cost of healthcare in the city is 15 percent below the national average. However, it's worth noting that the overall cost of living in La Mesa is nearly 70 percent higher than the national average, although this is mostly attributed to housing costs. 

    • Seniors and their loved ones may feel insecure living in La Mesa, as property crime rates are above average. In La Mesa, 28.16 property crimes per 1,000 residents occur each year. This means that residents of La Mesa have a one in 36 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime such as theft or vandalism. By comparison, the state average is only 25.53 crimes per 1,000 residents.
