    What to Consider About Memory Care in Sutter County

    In Sutter County, 11.8 percent of people 65 or older have Alzheimer's or another type of dementia. Close to 15 percent, or just over 14,000, of the county's residents fall into this age group, so it's not surprising that many affected seniors and their families are searching for memory care providers in the area. They will find that Sutter County is home to two memory care facilities, licensed as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), that offer compassionate 24-hour care, as well as a variety of activities and amenities tailored to meet the needs of seniors with dementia.

    • Sutter County's abundant sunshine and mild winters may encourage seniors to settle in one of the area's memory care facilities. In a typical year, the county experiences 264 sunny days and winters with an average low temperature of 39 degrees. 
    • The high cost of living in Sutter County relative to the rest of the country may mean that families choosing a memory facility here will have to make their dollars stretch further. Overall living costs in the county are about 21 percent higher than the national average, while healthcare costs are roughly the same as the national average.
    • The American Lung Association's 2018 State of the Air report links the pollutants present in Sutter County's air, such as ozone and particles, with an increased risk of health problems for seniors. The best way for seniors to mitigate this risk while living in memory care may be to stay inside when the air quality is bad.
    • The Sutter County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Sutter Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
