Page Reviewed / Updated – February 15, 2024

Victorville is a fast-growing city of 137,000 people in the High Desert above the Los Angeles basin. Just over 10% of the city’s residents are older adults aged 65 and over. The city has a dry climate that gets just 5 inches of rain a year, with hot summers and relatively mild winters. California’s life expectancy was 79 years in 2020, with the CDC listing Alzheimer’s disease as the cause of over 16,000 deaths a year in the state, making this the fourth-leading cause of mortality overall.

Dementia care is a type of residential senior living that includes therapy and 24-hour supervision and care for people with various forms of dementia. Staff members at these communities have special training in caring for seniors with memory loss. Because of this extra level of attention, memory care costs tend to run 25% higher than the local cost of assisted living. That cost averages $6,563 a month in Victorville, which is higher than the national average but in line with the state average for memory care.

Read on to discover the top four memory care communities in Victorville.

Sterling Commons Memory Care Community

Located on the northeastern edge of town, adjacent to a fire station, Sterling Commons houses up to 70 seniors with dementia in its memory care community. This community makes our list because the staff, trained in the needs of seniors with Alzheimer's disease, apply the Humantitude model for full-spectrum sensory engagement. The program uses directed eye contact and tactile stimulation to engage seniors' attention and keep them focused on the therapeutic activities each day includes. Staff members speak to residents in a modulated tone to keep older adults with dementia calm and able to follow what's being said. Caregivers also help with the activities of daily living, and trained professionals provide physical and behavioral health therapy.
