Page Reviewed / Updated – January 26, 2024

Located on the Colorado River in southwest Arizona, Yuma, the sunniest city on Earth, is home to about 98,500 people, including almost 16,000 seniors aged 65 or older. Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey reveals that the city’s seniors pay an average of $3,800 per month for assisted living services. Memory care is around 25% pricer, averaging $4,750 per month, due to the increased amount of supervision and specialized care individuals with dementia need. Nevertheless, Yuma’s memory care costs are around $250 less than the Arizona statewide norm of $5,000 and $875 cheaper than the national median of $5,625.

After comprehensively reviewing Yuma’s 18 memory care facilities locally and nearby, we selected the ones most highly regarded by seniors and their families for inclusion in our best-of list below. Read on to learn about each selected facility’s standout services, amenities and dementia care programs.
