    The Van Buren region has two memory care facilities, with one in the city and one in nearby Fort Smith. In the Van Buren region, as in all of Arkansas, memory care facilities are officially called Alzheimer's special care units, and they are licensed and regulated by the Arkansas Department of Human Services

    • Van Buren's overall crime rate is considerably higher than the national average for cities of all sizes, including 73 percent of the cities in Arkansas. When compared only to cities with similar population sizes, Van Buren's crime rate is quite a bit higher than the median.

    • Summers in Van Buren are hot and humid, with July highs in the low-90s, and winters are cold and wet, with January lows in the low-30s. The area receives just 5 inches of annual snowfall, which may make winter travel easy for families visiting loved ones in local memory care facilities.
