What to Consider About Memory Care in Santee

The town of Santee, CA, is an eastern suburb of San Diego, with a population of 58,000 people, 13 percent of whom are seniors age 65 and over. Just under 3 percent of Santee's seniors have Alzheimer's disease, and many have found a safe, therapeutic home in one of the memory care facilities within the city's boundaries. Santee is home to 10 memory care facilities, where seniors with advanced Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease and other forms of dementia get daily supervision and help following their doctors' treatment plans. Many memory care facilities are located adjacent to assisted living communities and receive residents from them. Both are licensed by the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing Program.

  • The weather in Santee is very close to that of neighboring San Diego. This area is renowned for having some of the mildest and pleasant weather in the country, with summer high temperatures averaging just 76 degrees Fahrenheit in the hottest months of summer, and lows rarely dipping below an average of 48 degrees in December. Spring brings close to 10 inches of rain, which can raise pollen and mold in the hills around Santee, so seniors with asthma may rely on allergy treatments for a few months a year. 
  • The cost of living in Santee is about 29 percent higher than the average nationwide. Much of this higher cost affects items that have little impact on seniors in memory care facilities, such as the cost of housing, though healthcare in the Santee area is generally about 7 percent higher than the national rate.
  • Santee's crime rates are generally around 10 percent lower than the national average. Property crimes occur at low to average rates, while violent crime is very rare.
  • The Santee area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Alvarado Hospital Medical Center and Sharp Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
