What to Consider About Memory Care in Playa Vista
Playa Vista has a little over 35,000 residents and is a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, where there are an estimated 147,000 seniors living with Alzheimer's disease. The area is served by the renowned Cedars-Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital, which has a world-class neurology department that provides care for seniors with all forms of dementia.
Seniors with dementia are further served by the area's 29 memory care facilities, which are often housed alongside assisted living facilities, as provisions for both levels of care are similar across the state. Officially, facilities that provide either level of care are known as residential care facilities and are regulated by the California Department of Social Services.
- The overall cost of living in Los Angeles is nearly double the national average, which might make the area far too expensive for some families. However, seniors who require frequent access to medical care might be able to save some money, as the cost of healthcare in Los Angeles is 15 percent below average.
- The climate in the Los Angeles area is reasonably comfortable and mild year-round. Average high temperatures in the summer sit around 84 degrees, while in the winter the average low temperature is a warm 47 degrees. Families may want to search for a memory care that provides a secure outdoor space for residents.
Violent crime rates in Los Angeles are considerably higher than the state average. Nearly eight violent crimes per 1,000 residents occur each year in the city, and by comparison, only 4.49 violent crimes per 1,000 residents occur in the average California city each year. That being said, Playa Vista's crime rates are considerably low when compared with the city average. Even so, it's best to discuss security with memory care facilities to ensure there are procedures in place to keep residents safe.
- The air quality in Los Angeles is known to be among the worst in the country, thanks to its high levels of ozone and particle pollution. Consistently poor air quality can negatively affect a person's health, particularly seniors and those with underlying medical conditions.
