What to Consider About Memory Care in Petaluma

Known for its picturesque harbors and scenic views, Petaluma is a small city located in the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay area.

Seniors with dementia and their loved ones can choose from six residential memory care facilities in the Petaluma area, two of which are in the city and another four that are located nearby in places such as Sonoma and Kenwood. 

Many of California's memory care facilities share a community with assisted living facilities, as regulations are similar for both levels of care. Throughout the state, communities that provide memory care or assisted living services to the elderly are known as residential care facilities.
