    What to Consider About Memory Care in National City

    National City is part of the greater San Diego metropolitan area and is located in the south of San Diego County. Nearly 7,425 of the 61,363 people living there are 65 or older, and roughly 2,600 of them have Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. California assisted living facilities that supervise and house patients with cognitive issues are called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs).

    RCFEs are tightly governed by statewide regulations and laws intended to foster the residents' independence, and the RCFEs are licensed through the Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD). National City has a single RCFE, but 17 alternative choices are in nearby San Diego, Chula Vista and surrounding communities.

    • San Diego County has average to poor air quality. It scored a C grade for particle pollution and an F for frequency of high ozone days. Seniors with respiratory issues may want to choose an alternative location when they look for an RCFE.
    • National City gets no snowfall and around 11 inches of rain annually, which is about 30 percent of the national average. Sunny days are abundant, with 53 more days of sunshine than the U.S. annual average of 205. The weather is consistently comfortable with only a 32-degree span between the winter low temperature of 46 and the summer high of 78. This earns National City an 83 out of 100 on the Sperling's Comfort Index.
    • When compared to a median cost of living rating of 100, National City's is rated 146.1, making it considerably more expensive to live here than other U.S. cities. This may make affording memory care here difficult for seniors on a fixed income. 
    • Crime rates are based on a 100-point scale, with one being the lowest and 100 representing the highest. National City's violent crime rate is 53.0, which is significantly higher than the national average of 31.1. Property crime is above the country's average by less than five points, at 43.7.
