    What to Consider About Memory Care in Yolo County

    Yolo County occupies a large, and largely rural, low-lying flood plain west of the Sacramento River and north of the San Francisco Bay Delta. The county has very few cities and is home to 220,000 people, with just over 12 percent being seniors age 65 and older, many of them living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. Only four dedicated memory care facilities operate in the county, though many dementia care facilities are associated with local assisted living or skilled nursing facilities.

    All such residential long-term care facilities are licensed by the California Department of Social Services Adult Care Licensing program, which conducts regular inspections to verify health and safety, staff training and quality of care issues at the site.

    • Yolo County's weather is generally mild and typical of California's Central Valley. Summertime highs in the county reach an average of 94 degrees, and winter lows dip to 39. Yolo County is largely rural, and the annual 21 inches of rain that it gets can encourage flooding in the low-lying plains along the Sacramento River and raise allergens some seniors with respiratory issues may have trouble with.
    • The cost of living in Yolo County is 142 percent of the national average. California's overall cost of living is about 169 percent the national cost. Much of the extra expense of living in the area, relative to the national figures, is in housing costs. Healthcare costs, on the other hand, are 9 percent lower than the typical cost nationwide.
    • Yolo County's crime rate is close to the national average in most categories, though it is generally a bit lower than rates nationwide. Across all types of incidents, crime rates here are 10 to 20 percent lower than average, while violent crime is less common still.
    • The Yolo County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Woodland Memorial Hospital and Sutter Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
