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.

  • Columbia shares its climate with nearby Waterloo, where mild summers and chilly winters prevail. August highs average 87 degrees, while December lows average 23 degrees. Columbia gets about 43 inches of rain a year along with 11 inches of snow.
  • The cost of living in Columbia is close to the national average in most categories. Overall, expenses are just 2 percent higher than the national average, while healthcare in the Columbia area costs 4 percent more than it does nationwide. Families who have loved ones living in a memory care facility should expect to pay about the same as any average U.S. city.
