In California, memory care services are provided by housing arrangements called residential care facilities (RCFs) licensed by the Department of Social Services. Most RFC residents are 60 years of age or older, with some exceptions, but RFCs cannot admit anyone who needs 24-hour nursing care. These facilities can support individuals with mild dementia if the resident organizes their own specialized care, such as receiving medical care from a visiting nurse or contracting with hospice agencies to access services that the facility cannot provide.
