Concord, located just over 2 miles from San Francisco, is the largest city in Contra Costa County and home to more than 122,000 residents, just over 15% of whom are aged 65 and over. The number of physicians in Concord is 219 per 100,000 people, slightly higher than the national average, including almost 300 who specialize in dementia care. The UCSF Memory and Aging Center, located a short drive away in San Francisco, is an internationally recognized leader in memory disorders. The center provides comprehensive evaluations of patients, conducts research on new therapies and includes support groups.

Memory care is typically 25% more expensive than assisted living due to the specialized and intensive support and 24/7 supervision required to meet the complex needs of individuals with dementia. Memory care in Concord costs $7,898 per month. As a comparison, the state and national averages are $6,562 and $5,625, respectively.
