What to Consider About Memory Care in Ventura
The city of Ventura, which is officially named San Buenaventura, has a population of a little over 110,000 residents, 15 percent of whom are seniors over the age of 65. It is located in California, the state with the highest rate of Alzheimer's disease in the country. This disease, which is primarily diagnosed in older adults, is present in roughly 650,000 Californian seniors.
There are eight memory care facilities in the Ventura region, with four in the city proper and four more in the nearby cities of Oxnard, Camarilla and Oak View. These facilities may either be housed independently or located within Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs). They are licensed and monitored by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division.
- Ventura has a comfortable year-round climate, which is ideal for seniors who enjoy relaxing outdoors. Temperatures range between the mid-40s in the winter and mid-70s in the summer, and the city has an average of 272 sunny days per year.
- Ventura has a high cost of living, which may be a concern for seniors on a tight budget. Overall living expenses are nearly 70 percent higher than in the country as a whole, although healthcare expenses are about 7 percent lower than the national average. This may offset other expenses and enable families to afford the costs of helping their loved one live with a chronic condition such as dementia.
- While Social Security benefits are tax exempt, California fully taxes all other sources of retirement income at some of the highest rates in the country. This may be a drawback for families who are helping their loved ones move to a memory care facility in Ventura from outside the state.
- Ventura's air quality may be a consideration for seniors who have asthma or COPD. Although the American Lung Association gave Ventura County an "A" for short-term particle pollution, the county was given just a passing score for annual particle pollution and an "F" for ozone pollution.
