What to Consider About Memory Care in Pleasanton
The city of Pleasanton, California, is an upscale commuter town of 83,000 people northeast of Silicon Valley and west of open farm country. A little less than 14 percent of Pleasanton residents are seniors age 65 and over, and many of these have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or have another form of dementia.
Staff at Pleasanton's 11 memory care facilities look after seniors who need full-time care and support in a safe environment where patients can follow their doctor's treatment plans. These facilities, and the assisted living communities that are often associated with them, are licensed at the state level by the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing Program, which regulates all long-term residential care facilities for seniors.
Pleasanton's weather is very similar to that of other East Bay communities. Warm, dry summers dry out the grassy hills around town and toss up hay in the air, which can be an issue for some seniors with asthma or strong allergies. Summer temperatures average 89 degrees in July and August. Winter brings chilly rain to Pleasanton, when overnight lows average 39 degrees. The hills east of Hayward get 15 inches of rain in a year, mostly between November and April.
- The cost of living in Pleasanton is double the California average and nearly three times the national median cost of living. Home prices are very high here, which skews the numbers, but seniors in memory care can find health care in the city for just 98 percent of the national average, or 5 percent higher than the average for the rest of California.
- Crime is not common in Pleasanton. Overall, the crime rate is around half the national average, and the community can go years between very serious violent crimes.
- The Pleasanton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as John Muir Medical Center and Stanford Health Care - ValleyCare Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
