    What to Consider About Memory Care in San Mateo

    San Mateo is located in Silicon Valley, just south of San Francisco, California. It's home to a little less than 150,000 residents, 14.9 percent of whom are over the age of 65. In the San Mateo area, there are 23 facilities that provide specialized residential care to seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease or other dementia disorders. Many of these facilities are housed in the same communities as those that provide assisted living services, which are officially known in California as residential care facilities. The provisions and regulations for both levels of care are similar throughout the state.

    • Seniors with limited income and savings may find the cost of living in San Mateo too expensive. Overall, it's 224.7 percent more costly to live in the city than the national average. Those looking for memory care for their loved ones should be sure they have a generous budget to work with before settling on a facility in San Mateo. 

    • The San Mateo area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as San Mateo Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Family and friends of seniors who reside in memory care facilities in San Mateo can rest assured that their loved ones are living in a safe area with low crime rates. In San Mateo, 20.8 property crimes occur per 1,000 residents, and 2.35 violent crimes per 1,000 residents occur each year. These rates are considerably lower than state averages, which are 25.53 property crimes and 4.45 violent crimes per 1,000 residents annually.

    • San Mateo's air quality has been assigned a passing grade by the American Lung Association and is of a much higher quality than many metropolitan areas throughout California.
