What to Consider About Memory Care in Paradise
Paradise is a small city near the northern edge of California's Central Valley. Over 25 percent of Paradise's 26,700 people are seniors aged 65 and over, and for those with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, advanced Parkinson's disease and other forms of dementia who need full-time supervision and care, the city has five memory care facilities. All residential care properties in the state are licensed through the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program, which inspects facilities and reports on conditions at each site.
- Paradise has a variable climate that experiences bigger swings than most California cities. In a typical summer, the average highs for July and August reach 91 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter lows average 39 degrees in December and January. Paradise gets a lot of rain by California standards; 59 inches is common in a typical year. This extra water can raise pollen and mold in the surrounding green belts and cause issues for seniors with asthma. Paradise tends to get a light dusting of snow once or twice a year.
- The cost of living in Paradise is roughly 11 percent higher than the national average, but only two-thirds the average cost for a California city. Much of this cost is in the high utility bills residents pay and the high cost of housing. Seniors in memory care, who are largely free from those expenses, incur healthcare costs that are exactly in line with the national rate.
- The overall crime rate in Paradise is about 40 percent lower than the national average across all categories. Seniors are especially safe in Paradise because violent crime is exceptionally low, even by the standards of mid-size California towns.
- The Paradise area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Feather River Hospital and Oroville Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
