What to Consider About Memory Care in Columbia

Columbia is a small, family-friendly commuter suburb located in the southern reaches of the St. Louis metro area near the Mississippi River. Just under 16.5 percent of Columbia's 10,000 people are seniors aged 65 and over, many of them living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. For seniors whose impairment has progressed to the point where they need full-time supervision and care, Columbia is home to eight memory care facilities in the city and neighboring Swansea.

Residential long-term care facilities in Columbia are regulated by the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Long-Term Care, which generally inspects facilities once a year.
