What to Consider About Memory Care in Hesperia
Hesperia is home to nearly 100,000 residents, 9.4 percent of whom are aged 65 years or older. In Hesperia, just as in most cities throughout California, there's a considerable need for memory care facilities that provide residential care to seniors with dementia, which affects an estimated 650,000 Californians over the age of 65. There are three facilities located in Hesperia that provide such care to seniors with dementia and an additional two located nearby in Apple Valley and Victorville.
These facilities, as well as those that provide basic assisted living services to seniors, are officially known as residential care facilities (RCFs) throughout California. The California Department of Social Services is responsible for regulating RCFs, which often offer both memory care and assisted living services due to the similar provisions in place for both levels of care.
- Hesperia's overall cost of living is nearly 20 percent higher than the average U.S. city, which may affect the cost of care and the cost of room and board in memory care facilities. Those who have a limited budget for memory care may want to consider less expensive cities in California.
- California's state income taxes are among the highest in the country and the state taxes all forms of retirement income including pension and retirement savings. Paying a large portion of income into taxes might leave budgets too tight for some families to pay for memory care.
