What to Consider About Memory Care in Salida
The small agricultural community of Salida is located in the central region of California in Stanislaus County, where it's estimated that a little over 10 percent of Medicare recipients aged 65 and over have Alzheimer's or dementia. Salida's local senior community makes up about 8 percent of the population of roughly 14,000 people, and as many as one in 10 of those seniors may be living with dementia.
In spite of its relatively small senior community, the Salida region has six memory care facilities from which to choose. One facility is located near the Golden State Highway in Salida proper, and the other five are in the nearby city of Modesto. In most cases, memory care is provided within residential care facilities for the elderly, and they are monitored by the Department of Social Services.
- In California, Social Security benefits are not taxable by the state, but all other forms of retirement income are fully taxed. This may be a consideration for Salida seniors and families who pay for memory care with funds from pensions or retirement savings accounts.
- The air quality in Stanislaus County is among the worst in the nation. The county has very high ozone pollution, 24-hour particle pollution and annual particle pollution levels. According to the American Lung Association, seniors, particularly those who have respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses, are vulnerable to high levels of pollution. This may be a consideration for some families researching local memory care facilities in Salida.
- Salida has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Modesto.
- Summers in Salida are hot and dry, with highs in the 90s and virtually no humidity. Winters are short and fairly mild with lows near 40 degrees, and most years experience no snow. This may make winter travel easy for families visiting loved ones in local memory care facilities.
