What to Consider About Memory Care in Palm Springs
Nestled in the Coachella Valley, Palm Springs, California, is a resort city where almost one-third of the 48,142 population is over 65 years old. Projections from the Alzheimer’s Association show that the rate of seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia will increase by 29 percent in California by 2025. To meet the needs of this surging demographic, the Palm Springs area offers seven memory care facilities, with two in town and five nearby in Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert.
In California, residential care facilities (RCFs) provide memory care services. RCFs are housing arrangements licensed by the Department of Social Services where 75 percent of the residents are 60 years of age or older, although they may admit residents younger than 60 if their needs are compatible with the needs of other residents. These facilities cannot serve individuals who need 24-hour nursing care or assistance with all activities of daily living. They can support individuals with mild dementia who arrange for their own specialized care. For example, a resident with dementia may receive medical care outside the facility or from a visiting nurse, or they may contract with hospice agencies to access services not provided by their RCF.
- For seniors with limited budgets, it's important to consider Palm Spring's high tax rates and high cost of living. Income from Californians’ retirement accounts and pensions are subject to high taxes, and California also has a relatively high sales tax. The overall cost of living in this city is almost 1.5 times the national average.
- Palm Springs has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Los Angeles.
- Out of 187 U.S. metropolitan areas, the Riverside County-Los Angeles-Long Beach area has the fourth-highest annual particle pollution level. This suggests that the air quality in Palm Springs is unsafe for seniors with cardiovascular conditions.
- Palm Springs has a warm, mild climate with year-round sunshine and low humidity. However, temperatures in July can climb to 107 degrees, so it's a good idea to ask your chosen memory care facility how it plans to keep residents safe from the extreme summer heat.
