Eureka may be hours from the nearest big city, but it stands alone as a cultural hub for the region and an ideal retirement destination. Voted one of the best art towns in America, this small Northern California coastal treasure overflows with galleries, museums, festivals, public murals, pristine Victorian architecture, and old-fashioned shopping and dining spots. Eureka Old Town Historic District draws in visitors throughout the year with its timeless aura and remains the heart of town for residents. And with the year-round mild temperatures of Eureka’s alluring Mediterranean climate, the city’s outdoor highlights — like the Humboldt Botanical Gardens, the Sequoia Park Zoo, and the Eureka Boardwalk — can be explored during any season.
In Eureka, memory care communities — sometimes called Alzheimer’s care or dementia care facilities — provide specialized care for seniors who have Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other forms of memory loss. These communities offer personalized cognitive rehabilitation programs alongside assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Memory care usually includes 24-hour supervision and unique design elements, like outdoor gardens and color-coded walls, to help ease anxiety, agitation, and other symptoms of dementia.
The median monthly cost of memory care in 2019 was about $5,000 in the state of California. To learn more about the cost of memory care in Eureka, contact A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors.
