    What to Consider About Memory Care in San Francisco

    California is home to nearly 40 million people, and 650,000 are seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. San Francisco is a city of nearly 900,000 people, 14 percent of whom are over 65, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and there are at least 173 memory care facilities located within the combined city and county limits for those with dementia and other cognitive diseases. These facilities are overseen by the California Department of Health and Human Services, which sometimes refers to them as residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs).

    • The weather in San Francisco is relatively stable because the city is surrounded on three sides by water. Summer highs in San Francisco average 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and lows in winter average 46 degrees. San Francisco can get windy, which can irritate seniors' COPD or other breathing difficulties.
    • San Francisco's cost of living is high, compared with both the national average and the rest of California. The city's cost of living is 80 percent higher than the national average, though much of this is from the 230 percent higher cost of housing, which barely affects seniors in memory care. Health care is still 20 percent above the national average, however, and transportation is 34 percent more expensive.
    • San Francisco's crime rate is fairly high, relative to the average for the rest of the state. Violent crime is roughly 30 percent higher in San Francisco than in the rest of California, while property crimes like theft and vandalism are more than double the state average. This can be an issue for seniors who travel outside of their facility alone, but memory care patients are always attended by staff, which helps keep them safe.
    • The San Francisco area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as UCSF Medical Center and Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
