    What to Consider About Memory Care in Montgomery County

    In 2012, approximately 12 percent of those in the Medicare population in Montgomery County had Alzheimer's disease. This number is likely to rise, since seniors make  up 14 percent of Montgomery County's population, thanks, in part, to its lower cost of living.

    To better serve this population, Montgomery County has elected to become a "Dementia Friendly" community.The Central Alabama Aging Consortium        (CAAC) was given a grant to help create dementia friendly schools and businesses. They also provide memory screenings and help educate the public about how to better care for those with dementia.  CAAC partners with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office on Project Lifesaver, which provides a special bracelet to memory care patients. This bracelet has a unique PIN number that helps law enforcement to quickly contact the patient's caregiver.

    In Montgomery, the county's largest city and Alabama's capital, there are eight well-equipped memory care facilities to care for Alzheimer's patients. Many of these facilities also provide assisted living services. 

    • Though the winters are mild, providing lots of opportunities for outdoor exercise, summers in Montgomery County can feature oppressive heat. When evaluating a memory care facility, make sure they keep seniors cool and comfortable during the hottest months of the year.
    • Because seniors may be more at risk for lung problems, air quality is especially important. Fortunately, Montgomery County earned a "B" score overall for air quality from the American Lung Association. 
    • When it comes to crime, Montgomery County has a violent crime rate of 36.3 compared to a national average of 31.1 and a property crime rate of 65, which far exceeds the U.S. average of 38.1. However, crime can vary greatly within the county.
    • Montgomery is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Jackson Hospital and the Central Alabama Veteran's Health Care System West Campus in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
