Memory Care in California

Memory care facilities provide those living with Alzheimer's and dementia with care that is tailored to their unique needs. Memory care can take place in its own facility, or as part of a designated wing of another residential care community.

This guide will cover the cost of memory care in California, financial assistance options for paying for memory care, free memory care resources in the state, and a directory of memory care facilities in California.
