    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mobile County

    In Mobile County, Alabama, seniors make up 15.8 percent of the population, approximately 12 percent of those in the Medicare population in Mobile County had Alzheimer's disease in 2012, and the numbers are on the rise. In Mobile, the county’s largest city, there are seven well-equipped memory care facilities to care for Alzheimer’s patients. Many of these facilities also provide assisted living services. 

    In order to better care for Mobile County residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, a local non-profit organization called Gulf Coast Dementia Services provides education and training throughout the county. It also offers helpful services such as case management, health counseling, care advocacy, dementia care services, and a free dementia support group for caregivers.

    Project Lifesaver, a program run by the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, provides a special transmitter device to memory care patients that can be worn on the wrist or ankle. This device enables law enforcement to quickly locate a patient in trouble.  

    • Mobile has mild winters and lots of hot, sunny summer days, but thanks to its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, it also gets an average of 66 inches of rain each year, compared to a national average of only 39 inches.  
    • Because seniors may be more at risk for lung problems, air quality is especially important.  Unfortunately, Mobile County recently scored a “D” for air quality from the American Lung Association. 
    • When it comes to crime, Mobile County has room for improvement. It has a high violent crime rate of 53.5 compared to a national average of 31.1 and a property crime rate of 64.3, which far exceeds the U.S. average of 38.1.
      While memory care facilities use security cameras and lock doors, it still a good idea to find out how they plan to keep residents safe. 
    • Mobile County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Mobile Infirmary Medical Center Providence Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
