10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Los Angeles, CA

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Los Angeles, California, is a desirable location for senior living. Its iconic views and never-ending entertainment, in addition to its range of senior care offerings, make Los Angeles an ideal place to retire. If your loved one needs memory care, they can begin a supportive lifestyle in a range of stand-alone memory care facilities and larger multi-care communities.

Memory care is a specialized type of assisted living for seniors suffering from memory loss due to Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Seniors in these memory care communities receive personal care services, specific cognitive therapies to help with symptoms of memory loss, and help with activities of daily living, such as personal hygiene and mealtimes.

To help you find a memory care facility that’s right for your loved one, we’ve created a comprehensive guide to memory care in Los Angeles. A Place for Mom has 78 partner memory care communities within a 10-mile radius of the Los Angeles city center. We’ve included our proprietary local data on these communities to provide helpful information to seniors and their families. Data includes memory care costs, ways that people pay for memory care, and California memory care laws and regulations. We also provide helpful local resources for seniors and outline what families can expect from a Los Angeles memory care community.

Our methodology

How we identify the top facilities in your location

We developed a proprietary recommendation system that ranks communities based on factors
we know are important to seniors and their families:

  • Proximity to your location

  • The amount of information available

Where we source our information

14,000+ communities

We’ve collected data from and about our network of more than 14,000 senior living communities in the U.S. for over twenty years, and we update this information at least once a year.

350,000+ reviews

Additionally, we’ve gathered over 350,000 reviews from senior living residents and family members to provide first-hand accounts of what senior living communities are really like.

How seniors pay for memory care in Los Angeles

Seniors and their families often combine different payment options to cover the cost of memory care in Los Angeles. If your senior loved one needs long-term memory care, they may qualify for state and federal programs to help cover some of the associated costs. Continue reading to learn how combining private payment methods, veterans benefits, and public assistance options may help cover the costs of memory care.

Private pay methods in Los Angeles

Private pay methods are your personal financial assets. These might include options such as savings accounts, investment returns, pensions, Social Security benefits, and any of the following:

Selling a house
Reverse mortgage
Health savings accounts
Life insurance
Long-term care insurance

Veterans Affairs (or VA) benefits for memory care in Los Angeles

Low-income senior veterans with disabilities should enroll in VA health care if they want access to veteran-specific benefits and potential income to pay for long-term care. To transition from Medi-Cal to VA health care, senior veterans over the age of 65 or their surviving spouses can use CalVet. This program helps seniors enroll in a Veterans Benefit Enhancement Program (or VBE) that guides veterans through the benefits transition process.

Veterans Pension program

Enrolling in VA health care and the Veterans Pension program opens up additional income opportunities for senior veterans. VA pensions are a source of monthly income that seniors can use to cover memory care costs if they meet the following criteria:

  • The senior hasn’t received a dishonorable discharge.
  • The senior’s annual family income and net worth meet congressional limits.
  • The senior served at least 90 days of service, including one day of wartime.

The senior must also meet at least one of the following:

  • Be at least 65 years old.
  • Be diagnosed with a permanent disability.
  • Currently receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).[03]
Aid and Attendance benefit

Senior veterans with disabilities related to wartime service, who receive a VA pension and are enrolled in VA health care, may also apply for the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. As an addition to a VA pension, the VA Aid and Attendance provides additional income that can help pay for memory care if the services will improve the senior’s quality of life. Veterans must meet the VA pension criteria and at least one of the following requirements to receive the Aid and Attendance benefit:

  • The senior needs help with some activities of daily living, like meal prep.
  • The senior has an illness that keeps them in bed for most or all of the day if left untreated.
  • The senior has significantly impaired vision.
  • The senior currently lives in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility.[04]

You’ll find resources at the federal and state level, in addition to several local city organizations that can help you file for claims successfully. It’s best to seek out local veteran advocates for assistance with the complex benefit application process.

Los Angeles Medi-Cal for memory care

Seniors who meet low-income criteria may be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, called Medi-Cal. Medi-Cal provides health care coverage for a range of services, including medical appointments and hospital stays. To apply for Medi-Cal, California senior residents can use the online portal called Covered California, which will help you understand if your senior loved one qualifies for Medi-Cal. Covered California provides access to both Medi-Cal and full-coverage health care plans at a low cost.

Medi-Cal won’t cover the costs of room and board in a memory care facility, but it may cover medical costs that are needed during your loved one’s stay. However, the memory care facility needs to be approved by Medi-Cal in order for Medi-Cal to pay for care.[05]

For assistance with the Medi-Cal application process, contact the Department of Health Care Services (or DHS) Medi-Cal Rx Customer Service center. You can also take advantage of the Los Angeles Department of Aging or the Long-Term Care Ombudsman, which is a local resource that advocates for seniors’ rights and provides assistance with benefit applications. In addition, the California Department of Public Health (or CDPH) provides helpful resources for seniors in need of health care services.

Medicare memory care coverage in Los Angeles

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for seniors who are at least 65 years old. Please note that because it’s a program that covers medical costs, Medicare won’t cover the cost of room and board in a memory care facility.[06] However, certain medical costs that occur while a senior lives in a memory care facility may be covered.

Medicare has three parts that covers each of the following medical expenses:

  • Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Medicare Part B covers preventive services, medical supplies, outpatient care, and some doctors’ appointments.
  • Medicare Part D covers certain vaccines and prescription medications.[06]

Seniors enrolled in Medicare may also be able to use one of California’s four Medicare Savings Programs. You can help your senior loved one apply for Medicare Savings Programs online and explore coverage for one or a combination of the three Medicare parts. Guidance through the application process for Medicare and Medicare Savings Programs is available through the Los Angeles Social Security Administration Office and the county’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman.

You can also access the Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (or HICAP), which can help you understand Medicare benefits and help you with your application. To learn about additional programs and local services, contact 2-1-1 LA.

Understand California laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Memory care facilities in Los Angeles are licensed by the California Department of Social Services (or CDSS). These facilities fall under the titles of Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (or RCFE) and/or Continuing Care Retirement Community (or CCRC).[07] Each facility needs to comply with the following regulations:

  • House a maximum of two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms have room to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common rooms for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills[08]

Resident and staff requirements

In addition, Los Angeles memory care facilities are required to assess potential residents before they move in. The assessment process may include a review of the senior’s health history and an interview with the senior and their family.[08]

Memory care communities must also have adequate staff at all times to provide care for residents. Regardless of the number of residents, each facility must have one staff member awake and on duty at night. If the facility has more than 16 residents, there must also be an on-call staff member. In addition, all caregivers in these communities must have at least 8 hours of annual training on dementia-specific care.[09]

Inspections

The CDSS is responsible for inspecting Los Angeles memory care facilities once each year and no later than 10 days after a complaint has been filed.[08] The CDSS has a Care Facility Search site where you can find lists of memory care facilities and their inspection reports. To navigate this search site, scroll to “Search By Facility Group,” choose “Elderly Assisted Living,” choose the “Facility Type” and “Los Angeles County,” and then click on the search button. The site also allows you to search by facility name or address if you already have that information.

These include wearing masks in public, getting vaccinated for COVID-19, and taking a test if symptoms are present. For frequently updated guidance, read the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s current COVID-19 guidelines.

Los Angeles memory care facilities are required to follow the county’s care facility COVID-19 guidelines for assisted living facilities:

What to expect from memory care living in Los Angeles

Memory care facilities in Los Angeles are designed for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Skilled dementia-care caregivers and cognitive therapies help each resident make the most of their daily experiences. Both private and semi-private rooms can be found in these Los Angeles facilities, in addition to dementia-friendly layouts for safety and familiarity.

Dementia-care caregivers and therapies

Caregivers in Los Angeles memory care facilities are required to be highly trained to support residents through the challenges of dementia. Not only do they receive extensive memory care training prior to working with seniors with dementia, but caregivers may also receive continuing education. In addition, these specialized caregivers are able to guide residents through a range of dementia therapies.

Memory care therapies help seniors maintain their cognitive abilities and cope with the challenges of dementia symptoms. Several communities use music therapy, art therapy, and exercise programs to improve residents’ moods and quality of life. Even if a community isn’t live-in pet friendly, they may still include pet therapy sessions in the residents’ schedules to provide meaningful companionship and alleviate loneliness.

Specialized therapies can also include occupational therapy, cognitive stimulation, and reminiscence therapy. Each form of therapy can help seniors learn strategies to cope with cognitive challenges, maintain memories, or even restore memories.

Dementia-friendly design

Layouts are an important feature in Los Angeles memory care communities, because it can be hard for seniors with dementia to navigate their surroundings. Elements like hallways and visual markers are used to create safe, comfortable, and dependable environments. For instance, visual cues such as signs, wall colors, and floor designs can guide residents purposefully through their communities to distinct spaces. Some design modifications are also important to help prevent wandering.

Several memory care facilities in Los Angeles also have therapy gardens and enclosed walking paths. These outdoor features are sometimes used as a safe place for wandering seniors. They’re also helpful for minimizing dementia-related behaviors as walking can decrease aggression and depression. There are also facilities that have enclosed indoor and outdoor courtyards that enable residents to safely explore the community.

Enriching amenities and activities

Stand-alone Los Angeles memory care communities, multi-care assisted living facilities, and Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) often have wonderful on-site amenities and activity options. Residents can take leisurely strolls along paths in enclosed courtyards or lounge on rooftop decks that boast views of the Hollywood Hills. Seniors can even join fitness classes or enjoy quiet indoor courtyards. Many Los Angeles memory care facilities also offer restorative amenities, such as yoga and meditation gardens, full service salons for both men and women, and spas with massage services provided by a professional masseuse.

Most Los Angeles memory care communities also have full calendars of activities. Residents can connect with their new neighbors over things like candlelight dinners, baking classes, or spiritual services. They can also dine together on gourmet meals in the community’s restaurant and continue conversing in the cozy lounges or other common areas. Afterwards, live performances, art activities, and even music or pet therapy await. Some memory care facilities also work closely with local schools to bring student volunteers in to visit, keeping residents connected to their community.

Stand-alone memory care communities

Stand-alone memory care communities only offer memory care services to residents with some form of dementia. Some of these Los Angeles memory care communities exist within small residential properties and provide both the comforts of a homelike setting and the care seniors need. Some residential homelike communities are more personalized and encourage seniors to add their own decorations to give their rooms a personal touch. A stand-alone community may bring you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is in a community designed exclusively for their memory care needs.

Larger assisted living communities with memory care

Most of A Place for Mom’s partner memory care facilities in Los Angeles are part of larger assisted living facilities or Continuing Care Retirement Communities (or CCRCs) that offer multiple care types on one campus. At these multi-care communities, your senior family member can receive a range of care services as they age without ever having to move.

Even though larger assisted living communities and CCRCs cater to a wider range of senior care needs, their memory care neighborhoods are thoughtfully designed. They staff memory care specialists, provide specialized therapies, and incorporate dementia-friendly layouts for safety and comfort of residents. For example, some Los Angeles memory care communities have large memory display boxes outside of each resident’s room, promoting nostalgia and belonging. Seniors place treasured items on display outside their rooms to help them find their personal space more easily, so they can always feel at home.
