In addition, there are several memory care facilities in the "Magic City," including its suburbs such as Hoover and Bessemer.

    • The Birmingham-Hoover-Talladega area is ranked as one of the cleanest metropolitan areas in the country in terms of 24-hour particle pollution as recognized by the American Lung Association. However, it is also ranked among the top metropolitan areas with the worst air quality in terms of ozone days and annual particle pollution. Depending on one’s specific respiratory health condition, this may be tolerable or a special concern for some seniors.

Family members need to ensure that the memory care facilities they choose for their elderly loved ones have safety measures during the hot and wet seasons.
    • The occurrences of violent and property crimes in Birmingham surpass the Alabama state and U.S. average by more than 100 percent. It is important for family members to choose memory care facilities with effective security systems in place for the safety of their senior loved ones.
