    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lafayette

    The affluent city of Lafayette is situated in California, the state with the highest Alzheimer's disease rates in the country. It's estimated that one in 10 seniors age 65 and over have Alzheimer's, with more than 650,000 people in the state currently living with the disease. Lafayette's own senior community makes up over 18 percent of the 26,000-person population.

    To accommodate local seniors with dementia, Lafayette has two memory care facilities, and there are nearly two dozen more in the surrounding region. Some of these facilities are independent, while others are located within residential care facilities for the elderly.

    • The overall cost of living in Lafayette is more than three times higher than the national average. The cost of real estate is more than eight times the national average, which may affect the cost of memory care; healthcare expenses are only 2 percent higher here than in the nation as a whole. This may be a consideration for seniors and families on a tight budget.
    • On Sperling's Comfort Index, on which cities with more comfortable climates receive higher scores, Lafayette is rated 85 out of 100 compared to the national average of 54. This indicates that the city has a comfortable year-round climate with generally mild temperatures. July highs reach just 83 degrees, and the January low is 40 degrees. This may appeal to families whose senior loved one enjoys therapeutic outdoor activities like gardening.
    • In California, Social Security income is not taxed, but all other forms of retirement income are fully taxable. This may decrease how much money can be put toward memory care in Lafayette.
    • Contra Costa County's air quality was given an F for ozone pollution and a B for short-term particle pollution from the American Lung Association. This may be a concern for families whose senior loved one has a condition like asthma or is prone to respiratory infections.
