    What to Consider About Memory Care in Whittier

    Whittier, Los Angeles, is inhabited by 86,838 people, 12.8 percent of whom are 65 years or older. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the state of California will see a 29 percent increase in the rate of seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by 2025. To serve the growing number of seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, there are 43 memory care facilities around Whittier, with two in the city itself and 41 nearby.

    California makes memory care services available through housing arrangements called residential care facilities, which are licensed by the Department of Social Services. These facilities can support individuals with mild dementia if the resident organizes their own specialized care, like receiving medical care from a visiting nurse or contracting with hospice agencies to access services that the facility cannot provide.

    • For seniors with limited financial means, California’s high tax rates are important to consider. Income from retirement accounts and pensions are fully taxed in this state, but Social Security benefits are exempt.
    • Los Angeles County was given the grade of “F” by the American Lung Association for its short-term particle pollution levels. As such, the air quality in Whittier may worsen the condition of seniors with cardiovascular conditions.
    • Whittier has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Los Angeles.
    • Whittier is a relatively quiet, safe community, especially compared to the areas immediately surrounding it, making it a suitable place for seniors to live. This city’s rates of violent and property crime are in line with the national average, but Whittier’s violent crime rate is 35 percent lower on average than the rest of the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim metro area.
