What to Consider About Memory Care in Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek is located in Contra Costa County in the San Francisco Bay area and is home to a little less than 70,000 people. With nearly 30 percent of Walnut Creek's residents being over 65 years of age, there is a need for specialized care for those with dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease. Those who require this level of care have 30 residential memory care facilities to choose from in the Walnut Creek area, some of which are housed in the same communities as assisted living facilities, which are known officially as residential care facilities throughout California. For both memory care and assisted living, regulations are similar throughout the state. 

  • The American Lung Association has given the air quality in Walnut Creek a passing grade. Seniors with respiratory illnesses or breathing problems don't need to be concerned that the air they're breathing will worsen their condition.

  • The Walnut Creek area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia disorders such as John Muir Health Walnut Creek Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • For seniors who have limited income, residing in the Walnut Creek area may be too expensive. The overall cost of living in Walnut Creek is 125.5 percent higher than the national average, which is likely to affect the cost of room and board in memory care facilities. 

  • Although seniors and their loved ones can feel comfortable knowing that the rate of violent crime in Walnut Creek is far below the state average, some discomfort may come with the knowledge that property crime rates are above average. Only 25.53 property crimes occur per 1,000 residents on average each year throughout California, while in Walnut Creek this average is considerably higher at 32.28 property crimes per 1,000 residents each year. This means residents of Walnut Creek have a one in 31 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime, while the average California resident has only a one in 39 chance.
