Our Community - Tracy
Astoria in Tracy.
Located just a short drive away from San Francisco, a fast-growing Central Valley community, Astoria Memory Care is located in Tracy, CA. Tracy has the friendly feel of a small town complete with a quaint downtown and vibrant arts and entertainment scene – right in the middle of it all is Astoria! We’re located in a lovely residential neighborhood across the street from Merrill F. West High School, which supplies an abundance of energetic student volunteers who love spending time with our residents. Our great location provides residents with plenty of opportunities to connect with the local community – and we do! It’s common to see us out and about in the community at-large.
The heart of Astoria shines through our people. Our team members understand the difference between caring and giving care, and they’re committed to infusing our philosophy of treating people like family into everything they do.

Brian Clark joined Astoria as Maintenance Supervisor in November 2022.
He worked in HVAC for two years before switching careers, and becoming a community service officer with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department. Shortly following, he attended Police Academy, and graduated in 2007. After that, he worked as a police officer until July 2019 when he medically retired. During his law enforcement career he spent two years as a SWAT team operator, and received extensive training with critical incident management, crisis intervention, first aid and CPR. He received multiple letters of commendation for my actions on patrol as well as a medal for life saving measures taken during a critical incident. After my law enforcement career I worked as a legal clerk with the Stanislaus County Superior Court before coming to Astoria.
Brian and his wife, Samantha, have three children. In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, work working and exercise – particularly jujitsu and boxing.
