    What to Consider About Memory Care in San Diego

    A vibrant culture, beautiful views and a moderate year-round climate draw many retired seniors to the San Diego Area. In fact, 11.8 percent of the city's nearly 1.5 million residents are over the age of 65, many of whom require memory care for Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia. There are a total of 14 memory care facilities, or Residential Care Facilities (RCFs), in San Diego and an additional 20 located in nearby cities such as Chula Vista, Lemon Grove and Santee. Many of these facilities also offer assisted living services to the elderly, as the regulations in place throughout California are similar for both levels of care. 

    • With an overall cost of living that's more than 75 percent higher than the national average, some seniors and their families may find San Diego too expensive, especially those with a limited budget for memory care.
    • The San Diego area is home to world-class healthcare facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Scripps Mercy Hospital and Kindred Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • San Diego ranks sixth on the American Lung Association's list of the most polluted cities in the U.S. when it comes to ozone pollution. These high pollution levels can pose health risks to those who are over the age of 65, particularly if they have a respiratory or cardiovascular condition. 
    • San Diego is considerably safer than other major cities in California. Both property crime and violent crime rates are below state averages and San Diego is safer than 25 percent of U.S. cities. Even so, it's a good idea to discuss safety measures with memory care facilities to ensure they have measures in place to keep residents safe.
