    What to Consider About Memory Care in Columbus

    Columbus, which is home to roughly 47,000 people and a senior community that accounts for more than 14 percent of the population, is a small city that is situated about 35 miles south of the capital city of Indianapolis. In Indiana, it is estimated that about 110,000 people live with Alzheimer's disease. To support its local seniors who have Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Columbus has two memory care facilities, and there are two additional facilities outside of the city proper. 

    In Columbus, as in all of the state, the official term for memory care facilities is dementia special care units, or SCUs. While some SCUs have their own building, many are located within assisted living facilities.

    • The Columbus area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Columbus Regional Health and Franciscan Physician Network Columbus Primary & Specialty Care, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Columbus is an affordable city to reside in, with an overall cost of living that is 13 percent below the national average. Healthcare expenses are about four percent higher than the state average and 13 percent below the national average, which may be a consideration for seniors who are managing chronic conditions. 
    • Summers in Columbus are warm with highs in the mid-80s, and winters are chilly with lows around 21 degrees Fahrenheit. The region only gets 15 inches of annual snowfall, compared to the national average of 26 inches of snow, which may be beneficial for families who enjoy visiting their loved ones in memory care. 
    • While the property crime rate in Columbus is significantly higher than the national average, its violent crime rate is quite a bit lower. This may appeal to families who are researching memory care facilities in central Indiana.
