    What to Consider About Memory Care in Placerville

    The city of Placerville, CA, is a mountain town of 11,000 people, set in the forested hills above Sacramento. Roughly 19.5 percent of Placerville residents are seniors age 65 and over, some with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease or advanced forms of Parkinson's disease, who live in one of the town's two memory care facilities.

    These sites are regulated by the state of California as long-term residential care facilities, all of which are licensed through the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program. The department regularly inspects and updates public records it keeps on licensed facilities around the state, including those in Placerville, where seniors with dementia get full-time supervision, therapeutic services and help following their doctors' long-range treatment plans.

    • The climate in Placerville is hot and cold by turns because it's halfway up the Foothills of the Central Valley. Summer highs can average 93 degrees Fahrenheit in August, but winter lows dip to an average of 33 degrees in December. Placerville sees 39 inches of rain in a typical year. The hot summers and cold winters can be problematic for seniors who are sensitive to the temperature, while the heavy rain sometimes raises allergens in the surrounding grassland.
    • The cost of living in Placerville is close to 11 percent higher than the national average overall, but health care is relatively affordable here. Seniors pay an average of 3 percent above the national median rate for most medical care in Placerville.
    • Placerville's crime rates are on the low side, averaging 95 percent of the national rates for most categories. Violent crime is rare here, though property crime rates are elevated for a relatively small city in the hill country.
    • The Placerville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Marshall Medical Center and Western Sierra Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
