What to Consider About Memory Care in San Marcos

San Marcos, California, is located in southern California and has about 96,000 residents, approximately 12 percent of whom are seniors 65 and older. This age group is the most vulnerable to develop dementia. In California, some 650,000 people have Alzheimer's disease and that number is growing. To provide the necessary services and support to these aging citizens, San Marcos has three memory care facilities, and there are over three dozen more in surrounding cities.

Memory care facilities in San Marcos and all of California are referred to as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly. Some RCFEs have dedicated properties, and others are co-located with assisted living facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in San Marcos

  • San Marcos's cost of living is 172.8, much higher than the national average of 100. It is driven by housing cost which may impact fees paid by memory care residents and their families.
  • On a crime scale between one and 100, with a high score indicating more crime, San Marcos has a violent crime rate of 22.2 and a property crime rate of 28.4, compared to the U.S. averages of 31.1 and 38.1 respectively. Despite the lower crime rates here, when touring various memory care facilities, caregivers may want to discuss steps taken to ensure the safety of residents.
  • On average, San Marcos gets 265 sunny days per year, much higher than the national average of 205. However, temperatures are moderate throughout the year. Summer highs in July average 84 degrees, while winter lows average 44 degrees. If memory care residents are offered supervised outdoor time, it's worth asking what precautions are taken to ensure they are protected from the sun.
  • California has some of the highest taxes in the country. Income from retirement accounts and pensions are fully taxed, although Social Security retirement benefits are exempt from state income tax. This may be a consideration for family members considering a move to be closer to loved ones in San Marcos memory care facilities.
