What to Consider About Memory Care in Palo Alto

Palo Alto is one of the thriving Silicon Valley communities on California's San Jose Peninsula. Home to 67,000 people, 18.5 percent of whom are seniors age 65 and over, Palo Alto and its surrounding communities have 114 memory care facilities, which are home to adults with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Seniors who need long-term residential care in memory care facilities get full-time supervision and help following their doctors' treatment plans. All California residential care properties are licensed through the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing Program.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Palo Alto

  • The weather in Palo Alto is generally pleasant and mild, similar to other Silicon Valley communities that surround it. Summers can get dry and dusty, with occasional smoke from grass fires in the surrounding hills. August highs average 80 degrees Fahrenheit, while mild winters bring average lows of 38 degrees. Winter and spring are the rainy season in Palo Alto when 16 inches of rainfall raise pollen and mold to levels that bother asthma and allergy-prone seniors.
  • Palo Alto's cost of living is exceptionally high in most areas. Overall, the area is over 600 percent more expensive than the national median, though this is mostly the high cost of housing, where the median home cost is an impressive 17 times the national median. Healthcare, which is of particular interest to seniors in memory care, is actually six percent less expensive than national rates.
  • Crime rates in Palo Alto are low, both by national standards and for a built-up urban area in California. Across categories, crime averages less than half the national rate here, with some property crime and nuisances getting reported each year.
  • The Palo Alto area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Valley Health Center Sunnyvale and Stanford Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
