    What to Consider About Memory Care in Nipomo

    The small city of Nipomo is nestled between the larger towns of Santa Maria and Pismo Beach. It's home to four memory care facilities, where seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia can get full-time supervision and care. Nipomo has a population of just 16,700 people, 2,400 of whom are age 65 and over.

    Nipomo's memory care facilities, like assisted living, skilled nursing and other residential long-term care facilities in California, are regulated by the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program. 

    • Nipomo shares its climate with nearby Santa Maria, CA. Here, close to the mostly sunny California coastline, winter lows average 40 degrees. Mild winters are offset by occasionally hot summers, when the midday average temperature reaches 74 degrees. The Nipomo-Santa Maria-Pismo Beach region gets just 14 inches of rain in a typical year, nearly all of it falling between December and March. The annual Santa Ana winds blow allergens into Nipomo, which could be troublesome for seniors with asthma.

Healthcare is especially affordable; average medical bills for families with seniors in memory care are 12 percent lower than the average equivalent cost in America.
    • Crime is generally low in Nipomo. Assault is especially uncommon here, at just one-third the national rate. Larceny is generally below average for a similar-sized American city, though some property crime rates are close to the national median.
