    What to Consider About Memory Care in Nevada County

    Nearly 100,000 people live in Nevada County, including a substantial number of baby boomers, who make up more than 25 percent of the population. Residents of the county who are age 65 and older have a more than 7 percent chance of developing Alzhemer's disease or another type of dementia.

    If a loved one's dementia in progressing, a transition to a memory care facility may be the best way to help them get compassionate, around-the-clock care in a secure environment. Nevada County is home to three memory care facilities, which the California Department of Social Services licenses as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs). 

    • Overall, Nevada County is 44 percent more expensive than the national average but 25 percent cheaper than the California state average. Notably, Nevada County's costs in some categories, such as healthcare, are slightly below the U.S. median.
    • Not all seniors in memory care facilities venture outdoors, but for those do, local weather matters. Nevada County tends to have warm, rainy summers and cool, snowy winters. On average, the county receives 63 days of precipitation annually, with around 64 inches of rain and 26 inches of snow. 
    • In California, most kinds of retirement income are taxable, although Social Security benefits are exempt. In Nevada County, there is a sales tax rate of .25 percent, which is in addition to the 6 percent state sales tax. City governments may collect up to an additional 2.25 percent in local sales taxes.
    • Outdoor air quality may affect the health of seniors who spend time outside in a memory care facility's yard. Nevada County received a mixed report card on air quality, getting an F for ozone and a B for short-term particle pollution.
