Annapolis, Maryland, is home to just under 40,000 residents, and approximately 16.5% of that population is seniors over the age of 65. Mental illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, affect more seniors every year, and this holds true for Annapolis. Per the Center for Disease Control, the number of deaths related to Alzheimer’s rose from 82 in 2014 to 127 in 2018, a growth of 54.88%. The number of total deaths in Annapolis only increased by a rate of 9.84%. The difference in these numbers illustrates the gravity of Alzheimer’s as a risk. 

Although Alzheimer’s is a serious issue, there are memory care facilities in Annapolis that can support seniors who are suffering from dementia. These facilities specialize in caring for residents with memory-related illnesses, and they provide around-the-clock supervision and care, personalized therapy and treatments, and assistance with activities of daily living, including dressing, eating, and bathing. In this guide, you’ll read about the positives and negatives of Annapolis, the cost of memory care and financial assistance and resources for local seniors.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Annapolis

  • Annapolis’s climate ranges from moderate temperatures in the summer (an average of 75 degrees Fahrenheit) to cold in the winter (an average of 35 degrees). The city also sees a decent amount of storms, allowing the government to keep water supplies at a healthy amount.
  • One of the biggest disadvantages to living in Annapolis is the crime rate. Annapolis’ crime rate is 28% higher than the national average, with 2,994 crimes reported per 100,000 residents. Most of it — approximately 78% — is property crime.
  • Seniors and those with disabilities have access to complimentary transportation around Annapolis through two programs supported by Anne Arundel County Office of Transportation (OOT). Lift-equipped vehicles are available for people in wheelchairs. Reservations are required. 
  • Air quality in Annapolis has been rated as poor as of late, so it may be unhealthy for particular groups to spend a lot of time outside. While the air quality is considered poor, there are actually three ratings on the scale below it, so it isn’t nearly as bad as it could be.
