Number of veterans who live in Long Beach

About 26% of Long Beach veterans are over the age 75

Veterans in the Long Beach area may be eligible for certain benefits that can help offset the costs associated with memory care. The VA Pension, for example, is a benefit that supplements a veteran’s income. It can be put toward a variety of expenses, including memory care costs. Eligibility requirements do apply. If a senior or surviving spouse qualifies, receiving the benefit is just a matter of applying online with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

The VA also offers the Aid and Attendance allowance to veterans that is paid in addition to the Pension. If a senior or surviving spouse requires help performing daily activities or requires long-term care due to a mental or physical ailment, they may qualify. Applications are available online as well as at the Los Angeles Regional VA Office.

If you’re unsure whether a veteran or surviving spouse meets eligibility requirements, help is available. Veterans services organizations (VSOs) are reliable sources of information and can help you with the application process. VSOs are the best places to find veterans services officers, which are trained experts in helping veterans understand and apply for benefits.

Medicaid

Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program, can help pay for some costs associated with memory care through its waiver programs. There are three waivers that you might utilize: the Medi-Cal Waiver Program, the Home and Community-Based Alternatives Waiver, and the Assisted Living waiver. The Assisted Living waiver, in particular, could be of great benefit. The coverage applies to individuals who need a nursing facility level of care, and memory care can fall within that category.

It’s important to note that seniors must meet the eligibility requirements to qualify. Fortunately, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has put together a fairly informative guide: My Medi-Cal. In it, you’ll find details about how to apply, how to use Medicaid, and more. Once you’re ready, you can apply through one of the following methods:

  • Mail. Just download the application through the DHCS website, fill out the form, and mail it to Covered California.
  • Online. Visit the Covered California or BenefitsCal websites and follow the instructions to apply.
  • In Person. Visit Los Angeles County’s Department of Public Social Services.

Just make sure you have all the necessary information pulled together prior to applying. If you need assistance with the application process, then a Covered California certified enrollment counselor, Los Angeles County Aging & Disabilities Department employee, or the Wise & Healthy Aging ombudsman program member can help.

Medicare

If seniors have certain disabilities or illnesses or are over the age of 65, they can apply for Medicare. It doesn’t cover room and board in a memory care facility, but it can cover medical care, such as physician fees, general nursing care, physical therapy, prescription drugs, and more. You can apply for this benefit by either submitting an online application or visiting the Long Beach Social Security office.

Seniors with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia may also qualify for other Medicare programs. The Medicare Savings Program (MSP) pays for Medicare premiums, deductibles, and copays for eligible seniors. Medicare beneficiaries can save on their prescriptions through the Prescription Drug Discount Program. There are several Program for All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE) locations that might be useful for qualified Long Beach seniors. PACE programs provide care coordination, transportation, social services, and meals to seniors who require some assistance with daily activities.

If you need help applying for Medicare or have insurance questions, the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) is California’s State Health Insurance Assistance Program, which provides one-on-one counseling and assistance to individuals who are eligible for Medicare. The California Department of Aging, the Los Angeles County Aging & Disabilities Department, and the City of Los Angeles Department of Aging can help, too. There’s also the Wise & Healthy Aging ombudsman program which provides long-term care advocacy support.

Understand California laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Memory care facilities are Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) in California and have to be licensed through the California Senior Care Licensing Program.

In California, an RCFE must provide supervision and assistance to residents with daily living activities and taking their medications. The facilities have to provide planned activities that are appropriate for residents with memory loss issues. The staff has to help residents by arranging access to medical and dental care as well.

Memory care facilities are required to have sufficient care staff (exact numbers depend on the size of the facility) and have a licensed administrator. A criminal background check must be passed by all staff members.

They must also provide dementia-specific training to staff members and have special safety precautions in place to deal with wandering or any type of aggressive behavior. There are also special provisions around exits and outdoor areas to ensure the complete safety of residents with memory issues who are likely to wander.

Memory care facilities are inspected every two years. You can review inspection reports by searching specific facilities online or calling 916-558-1784.

What to expect from memory care living in Long Beach

Memory care communities in Long Beach are designed to help seniors relax. Some communities offer rooms that overlook greenery, and others are designed with long walking paths for residents to enjoy or planned outings to the beach. There are also a variety of building styles: modern, Spanish, coastal, etc. In the following sections, you’ll learn more about the types of communities in Long Beach as well as what memory care facilities offer.

Types of communities

There isn’t a cookie-cutter approach to memory care. Each individual has distinct needs, after all. They also exhibit very different symptoms depending on how dementia progresses. The memory care communities in Long Beach understand this, which is why many offer more than one housing arrangement to support residents as they age. Here’s a breakdown of the senior living options in Long Beach:

  • Four stand-alone memory care facilities
  • Four combination assisted living and memory care facilities
  • Six combination memory care, assisted living, and independent living facilities
  • 26 group homes and memory care facilities
  • One memory care, assisted living, and adult day care facility

Thoughtfully designed facilities

Effective memory care often starts with the environment. Related services aren’t just about treating disease. The goal is to help people with Alzheimer’s or dementia maintain their dignity and independence in a safe and secure setting designed to meet the specific social, physical, and medical needs of individuals. Many communities offer WanderGuard or a similar system to protect residents, and each facility will offer activities specifically designed for memory care residents.

Are you thinking about a group home? These facilities in Long Beach are smaller, allowing them to provide more intimate care. Your loved one will enjoy the homey environment and close-knit community in a group home.

More than memory care

Seniors move to memory care facilities for their safe and structured environments, dementia therapies, cognitive training, and other memory-enhancing care services. In Long Beach, memory care facilities often offer additional care outside of the more traditional services. For example, 81% of our partner communities offer redirection, cuing, and disorientation care.[03] Another 71% offer restlessness, pacing, and wandering care. Full medication management, exit-seeking behaviors care, and 24-hour awake staff is also available at many of our partner communities.

Visiting care practitioners

People with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia can benefit from health care practitioners outside of those specializing in memory care. About 59% of our partner facilities in Long Beach have a physician on call.[03] Additionally, many have visiting nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speed therapists, and podiatrists.

All drivers operate ADA-compliant vehicles and have training in the needs of people with disabilities. Dial-a-Taxi also offers transportation services to seniors and caregivers, but only if they live in Signal Hill. Signal Hill is an enclave surrounded by Long Beach.

Senior activities in Long Beach

While not as popular of a tourist attraction as its neighboring cities of Los Angeles and Anaheim, Long Beach still has plenty to offer. Plus, many of the attractions and activities are perfectly suited to seniors with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. For instance, Bay Shore Beach and Alamitos Beach are great places to swim, watch the waves, and admire the sunset.

The Aquarium of the Pacific, in particular, can be a great day trip, with indoor and outdoor exhibits, shark tanks, a sea otter habitat, a penguin habitat, a coral reef, and more. Senior tickets cost $33.95, and there are accommodations for guests who are blind or deaf or have wheelchairs, service animals, or sensory concerns.

The El Dorado Nature Center, which is actually part of the El Dorado East Regional Park, is also an option. It offers 105 acres to explore, with a quarter-mile paved trail that offers access to two lakes, a stream, and forested areas. The visitor center can be found on a small island, where seniors and their families can enjoy an art gallery, peruse educational displays, and go shopping at the gift shop.

Of course, no day would be complete without a visit to Shoreline Village, a Cape Cod-style shopping center with boardwalk boutiques, restaurants, arcades, boat rentals, and a carousel. The charming seaside atmosphere, coupled with the beautiful views, makes the area a perfect spot to relax for an hour or two.

If you and your loved one would like to learn more about Long Beach, there’s always Rancho Los Cerritos. This adobe-style home features free home and garden tours. One of the tours is more accessible for seniors who have wheelchairs or disabilities.
