Victorville, California, is a large city of 122,385 residents that falls within the greater Los Angeles statistical area. About 9% of those residents are aged 65 and older. Even with a lower older population, Victorville is still an attractive place for seniors to retire. While its cost of living is several points above the national average, its cost of health care is eight points below. Victorville also has a high score of 8/10 on the Best Places Comfort Index.

Assisted living is an ideal solution for seniors who are still active but need help with some activities of daily living such as preparing meals, transportation or grooming. Seniors who need consistent help with these activities or medical care are better suited for nursing homes, not assisted living. The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 places Victorville’s cost of assisted living at $5,000 a month. That’s the same as the state average but several hundred dollars above the national average.

This guide will look at the costs of assisted living in Victorville and nearby cities. It will also offer the benefits and drawbacks of living in Victorville and the free resources available to seniors in the city.
