What to Consider About Memory Care in Lemon Grove

Lemon Grove has a population of 13,765 and is part of the San Diego metropolitan area. Seniors 65 and above make up about 2,300 of the city's total residents, and 1,299 of them have Alzheimer's disease or another type of cognitive issue. That number is expected to rise by 29.2 percent by 2025.

Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) is the legal name for assisted living communities that care for those with memory loss. These group homes are governed strictly by state laws, and they must obtain a license for operation from the Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD). There are 27 facilities in the area, but only one in Lemon Grove.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lemon Grove

  • Lemon Grove has low annual rainfall for a coastal town, with only 12 inches, which is 27 less than the national average. Snow does not fall here, and sunny days outnumber the U.S. average by 268 to 205. Summertime high temperatures reach a pleasant 79 degrees Fahrenheit, and wintertime lows drop to a tolerable 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Sperling's Comfort Index awards Lemon Grove with a 92 ranking out of 100. Seniors who enjoy nice weather for its curative effect on painful joints may be attracted to this part of the country.
  • The cost of living is rated 152.5 on a scale with 100 representing median expenses across the country. This 50-point difference may translate to higher costs for memory care costs.
  • Violent crime rates a 48.2 out of 100, which is 17 points higher than average. The property crime rate is slightly higher than normal at 31.0. Memory care units are locked down and monitored so this likely will not affect seniors in memory care. 
  • Families of seniors with respiratory conditions might want to speak to their senior loved one's doctor about how air quality will affect their senior's health. San Diego County's air quality is rather poor. It only scored a C grade for the number of ozone days and an F for particle pollution.
