The state of California has gone to great lengths to provide exceptional memory care services to residents within its borders. The formation of the California Alzheimer's Disease Centers (CADC) has created ten state-of-the-art California memory care medical facilities with a center being housed at major university medical centers across the state. The centers have allowed for extensive research on preventing and treating the disease, as well as create a training ground for memory care workers in the state. There are also dozens of active chapters of the Alzheimer's Association in California that provide seniors and their family with reliable and helpful information regarding memory loss.
Memory care can be provided in a variety of settings from within a senior’s own private home to adult day care centers to long-term residential assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Senior living communities that specialize in memory care services provide residents with a safe environment that ensures seniors will not be in any danger if they become lost or confused. In addition to creating safe accommodations, California memory care facilities help residents complete everyday tasks, such as grooming, medication management, dining and bathing, which are provided 24 hours a day on an as-needed basis.
