    What to Consider About Memory Care in Sonora

    Sonora, CA, is the seat of Tuolumne County, in California's Sierra Nevada mountain range. Over 25 percent of the region's 54,000 people are seniors age 65 and over, many of them living with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. For those seniors who require full-time supervision and care, the Sonora area has four residential memory care facilities.

    These sites are often associated with assisted living communities, and both types of facility are regulated as long-term residential care homes. All such facilities in the state are licensed through the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing Program.

    • Sonora's climate is similar to many other towns in the lower reaches of the Sierra Nevadas. Summers can get hot, with an average daily high temperature of 92 degrees Fahrenheit. Winter lows dip to an average of 32 degrees Fahrenheit in December and January. Sonora gets 35 inches of rain in a year. The wooded hillsides around town fill the air with tree pollen, which some seniors with asthma find troubling.
    • The cost of living in Sonora is around 12 percent higher than the national average, which is well below the mean for California, where costs are 69 percent higher than the national level. Seniors who need health care in Tuolumne County pay an average of just 1 percent less than national rates for care.
    • Sonora's crime rate is very high, roughly double the national average, but the town is still very safe, especially for seniors. Violent crimes are rare in Sonora, but the rate of petty and felony theft are several times the national median, skewing the numbers overall and giving the town a much higher average crime rate than most categories would support.
    • The Sonora area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Sonora Regional Medical Center and Angels Camp Family Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
