    What to Consider About Memory Care in Metairie

    Seniors over the age of 65 make up about 17.7 percent of the population in Metairie, a small city of about 140,000 people in the greater New Orleans metropolitan area. There are four memory care facilities near Metairie, Louisiana, to accommodate seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia.

    In Metairie, as in all of Louisiana, memory care facilities are referred to as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (ASCUs). An ACSU includes any adult residential care provider that provides a special program or specifically designated unit at the facility for Alzheimer's or other dementia patients, as well as any residential care provider that markets or promotes their facility as providing specialized care for this type of patient.

    • The Metairie area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as East Jefferson General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Metairie has a humid, subtropical climate with mild winters and hot, wet summers, so it is essential to ensure that the memory care facility you choose has taken precautions to protect residents from extreme weather conditions and to prevent heat strokes during the hottest part of the year. Since the area is prone to occasional hurricanes, families may also want to ask about evacuation procedures or facility emergency plans in the event of a citywide mandatory evacuation.
    • The cost of living in Metairie is about 10 percent higher than the national average, which may be a concern for patients on a budget and their families. Fortunately, healthcare costs in Metairie tend to be a bit lower than the national average and the average throughout the state.
    • Metairie has a lower crime rate than the state average for Louisiana, but the crime rate is fairly high compared to other communities throughout the U.S. Metairie ranks just eight on a scale of zero to 100, with 100 being the safest, so families may want to ask about security plans, alarm systems and surveillance cameras when choosing a memory care facility.
