    What to Consider About Memory Care in Novato

    Novato is a California city of 56,000 people in the northern San Francisco Bay Area Wine Country. Nearly 19 percent of Novato's permanent residents are seniors age 65 and over, nearly a thousand of whom have Alzheimer's disease. Together with seniors who have Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease or some other form of dementia, these aging citizens often live in memory care facilities, where trained staff can take care of their daily needs.

    Memory care is a form of long-term residential supervision and treatment for seniors with some form of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, that is regulated in California by the state Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing Program. There are three licensed memory care facilities in Novato. 

    • Novato's location in the northern Bay Area gives it very stable temperatures and an easygoing summer season. August highs here average 82 degrees Fahrenheit, which is congenial for seniors who might be sensitive to heat. December lows average 38 degrees, which can be problematic for seniors with COPD or other respiratory issues. Novato gets a healthy 26.5 inches of rain a year, zero snow and frequent mist from the Bay Area fog that rolls over the Coastal Range.
    • The cost of living in Novato is 52 percent higher than elsewhere in the United States. Apart from the generally high costs for housing, transportation and utilities, Novato's seniors can also expect to pay roughly 20 percent more for health care here than the national average.
    • Novato's crime rates are less than half the national average. Property crime rates are generally low, and violent crime is especially rare here. Seniors in memory care facilities are generally safer still, but outdoor activities are likely to be very safe in this part of Marin County.
    • The Novato area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Novato Community Hospital and Marin General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
