    What to Consider About Memory Care in Vista

    Among Vista's close to 100,000 residents, nearly 10 percent belong to the 65 and older age group. An increasing number of these seniors are living with Alzheimer's disease, a condition that affects approximately 650,000 seniors across California. In the city of Vista and throughout the state, memory care facilities, known as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), support the needs of seniors with dementia. Memory care services near Vista are available in over 20 different facilities in the area, offering compassionate care from specially trained staff. 

    • Vista offers a slightly cheaper alternative to the neighboring city of San Diego. However, living in Vista, where overall costs average 163.8 percent more than the national average, may still put a strain on the budget for families with loved ones residing in memory care.
    • According to Sperling's Best Places, the city of Vista's climate receives a comfort index score of 82 out of 100, compared to a national average rating of 54. This ranking means that, relative to the rest of the country, seniors living in Vista can expect to enjoy more sunny days, milder temperatures and less humidity.
    • Crimes occur in Vista at a rate of 19 per 1,000 residents. A senior citizen's chance of becoming the victim of any type of crime in the city is one out of 53. Although this means that the crime rate in Vista is higher than the national average, it's lower than for other towns with a similar population.
    • San Diego County, where Vista is located, has one of poorest air quality rankings in the nation. Polluted air can increase health risks, especially for seniors that may already have respiratory illnesses. Family members should ask whether their loved ones in memory care go outside and, if so, what precautions are taken to avoid respiratory issues.
