What to Consider About Memory Care in Shasta County

People 65 years of age and older make up slightly more than one-fifth of Shasta County's population of about 175,000. Around 9 percent of these seniors have Alzheimer's disease or other dementia. For seniors and their families who are exploring memory care options, Shasta County offers three memory care facilities.

California State licenses these facilities as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), but RCFEs serving seniors with dementia must meet requirements for security and staff training that are above and beyond those required for RCFEs that provide assisted living only.

  • Seniors may prefer to live in an area with temperate weather, especially if their new memory care facility offers outdoor areas for them to enjoy. Shasta County has more days with temperatures in the 70s than the average community in America. The area's comfort index is 77 out of 100, where higher is better, and the national average is 54.
  • The American Lung Association, which measures pollutants in the air, gives Shasta County a passing grade for particle pollution. The county still has work to do, however, on ozone pollution, for which it received a failing grade. To protect their health, seniors in memory care facilities may want to avoid outdoor areas on days with poor air quality.
  • Shasta County is more affordable than many areas in California, with overall living costs that are 56 percent less expensive than the state average. As a result, seniors with dementia and their families living in Shasta County may be able to put extra savings toward memory care.
  • As seniors and their families know, taxes can put a dent in families' memory care budgets. Seniors living in Shasta County don't have to pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, but any other retirement income they receive is taxable. Shasta also has a county-wide sales tax rate of .25 percent, for a combined sales tax rate of 7.25 percent.
