    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lancaster

    Lancaster is located in Los Angeles County, California in the western Mojave Desert. The area is home to more than 160,000 residents, 10 percent of whom are 65 years of age or older and many of whom require specialized care for dementia. Throughout the state, an estimated 650,000 seniors have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease or another form of dementia, and those who reside in Lancaster are supported by the city's two memory care facilities. These facilities, known officially as residential care facilities in California, are closely regulated by the California Department of Social Services.

    • The air quality in Lancaster and throughout Los Angeles County is known to be the worst in the country. On days with high pollution levels, seniors may experience breathing difficulties, and the air quality may worsen the condition of those with previously diagnosed respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses.
    • Lancaster is located in the desert and has extremely hot summers. During July, the city averages a daytime high of 98 degrees and the city only gets an average of 8 inches of precipitation annually. Families of seniors who are sensitive to high temperatures or who have skin conditions may wish to consider memory care in a location with a more mild climate.
    • Despite the overall cost of living in Lancaster being 20 percent above the national average, seniors who require frequent medical care may find the city is more affordable than others in the area, as the cost of healthcare is 15 percent below the national average.
    • The Lancaster area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Antelope Valley Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
