Dementia and Memory Care in California

The state of California continues to progress to offer some of the best memory care residences and facilities to support seniors and aging adults who suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia. Residents at these memory care homes require access to around-the-clock treatment and provide solutions that go above common assisted living services offered in California. Decreasing the stress levels and providing a stable environment keeps seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia safe and gives them the continuity needed to complete some activities of daily life.

Keeping memory care residents active and engaged with their community is a top priority at many residences across California. When searching for a memory care program go beyond assessing price and room size. Some of the most successful Alzheimer’s and dementia care programs bring residents together and promote socializing. We have discovered a number of facilities that offer memory care residents the chance to cook, enjoy live music, interact with local students by playing games, reading, and just enjoying their company.

FAQs When Deciding On a Memory Care Home in California

What is the common price of memory care in California?

The average cost of memory care in California may range between $3,000 to over $5,500 per month based upon the space available or picked by a resident to live in. Monthly expenses for semi-private spaces may cost between $3,000-$4,000 and private rooms have a tendency to average between $4,000-$5,500 a month. Some care homes may impose a one-time, non-refundable community fee that is due prior to a residents move-in date.

What is the typical duration of stay for a resident in dementia care?

The common stay in a memory care home in California is about 2-3 years but stays can range greatly according to the required amount of care and a family’s support system.

Is memory care more expensive than assisted living in California?

In California, it’s quite common for the expenses associated with memory care to be higher than traditional assisted living. With that said, the living quarters is the most critical factor that can influence the costs of care with a memory care home or assisted living residence. A semi-private space in a memory care home is likely to be significantly less compared to the cost of a private room in an assisted living neighborhood.
