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.
