The Best Memory Care Facilities in San Diego County, CA

Dementia, and specifically Alzheimer’s, is a serious, growing problem. In fact, 1 out of every 10 adults over the age of 65 has Alzheimer’s dementia. As San Diego County's senior population continues to grow (14.53% growth between 2014 and 2019), so does the concern about aging and the risk of cognitive impairment.

In San Diego County, the number of deaths for those 65 and older caused or partly caused by Alzheimer’s disease increased by 7.47% between 2014 and 2019. The number of deaths from all causes for that same age group increased by 12.95%. Overall, the percentage of seniors’ deaths related to Alzheimer’s is higher than the rest of the nation (10.46% in San Diego County vs. 6.46% in the U.S.).

To help families and caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of cognitive impairment find the support and care their loved ones need, we applied our unique methodology and spent dozens of hours researching senior living communities in San Diego County. In addition to an overview of the communities’ best features, this guide highlights the best memory care facilities in the city, and gives information about pricing, types of care provided, residents’ reviews, and more.

How Memory Care Facilities Can Help

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 83% of all caregivers are unpaid family members, relatives, or other friends, and nearly half of all care is for older adults with some form of dementia. Caregiving, especially when it involves Alzheimer’s or dementia, is extremely exhausting and time consuming, leading many caregivers to feel isolated and overwhelmed.

As a loved one continues to progress through the stages of dementia and his or her cognitive abilities continue to decline, behavioral problems, safety, and general care often become more than one caregiver can handle. This is when it’s important to find extra help, and residential facilities that have specialized memory care programs are often the best solution.

In addition to providing a safe environment, memory care programs seek to delay or halt cognitive decline while providing the opportunity for a social, independent lifestyle.
