What to Consider About Memory Care in Oak View

Oak View is a small community on the outskirts of Ojai, in Ventura County, California. This beachfront region is home to 854,000 people, 15 percent of them are seniors age 65 and over, many of whom have Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease or another advanced form of dementia.

Seniors with dementia can get full-time residential care in a memory care facility. These facilities are often associated with nearby assisted living communities and may be located on the same lot. Both types of care, along with skilled nursing, are required to be licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program. Oak View has three of these facilities within its borders, with many more in neighboring Ventura and Ojai.
