The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in San Diego, CA

As the eighth-largest city in the U.S., sunny San Diego boasts more than 1.4 million residents, with 12.3% of this population aged 65 and older, according to information from the U.S. Census Bureau. While the high cost of living often makes the Golden State prohibitive for retirees on fixed incomes, the perpetually pleasant weather, high quality of life and availability of quality health care continues to make California a popular place for retirement. San Diego is a favored community thanks to its near perfect climate, lush landscapes, sandy beaches and plenty of activities that encourage family and friends to visit frequently.

Seniors who need specialized care due to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can find numerous homelike communities to suit their needs. Assisted Living in San Diego costs $4,750 per month, but the cost for memory care generally runs about 25% more. Seniors can expect to pay about $5,938 for this higher level of care, which is about $300 more than the state average of $5,625 and nearly $900 higher than the nationwide average of $5,064.
