What to Consider About Memory Care in San Luis Obispo County

Of the approximately 55,000 seniors aged 65 or over who make their homes throughout San Luis Obispo County, around 5,000 are living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia. Because so many of these seniors will eventually require long-term care, San Luis Obispo County offers three memory facilities that provide compassionate, personalized care to people with cognitive impairments.

California's Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division, licenses these facilities as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly        (RCFEs), which is the same designation used for assisted living facilities. However, RCFEs that house seniors with dementia must meet special provisions concerning activity programs, increased security and staff education.
