    An estimated 650,000 Californians over the age of 65 suffer from dementia disorders like Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease, resulting in a considerable need for memory care facilities throughout the state. In Bakersfield, a city that's located just north of Los Angeles and well-known for it's dry, desert climate, nearly 10 percent of the 380,000 residents are over the age of 65, and the need for memory care is met by the city's four memory care facilities. 

    In California, facilities that provide memory care and assisted living service to the elderly are officially known as residential care facilities, and quite often, both levels of care are provided in the same facility as state regulations for both are similar.
