Naples has 19,115 residents, and more than 52% of them are age 65 or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Some individuals in this large senior population are living with Alzheimer’s disease and similar disorders. Fortunately, the death rate related to this disease has decreased.

This figure contrasts with an increased overall death rate of 13.42% during the same time frame.

These communities provide around-the-clock care for seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. In this guide, discover more information about these memory care facilities in Naples.
