    What to Consider About Memory Care in Baltimore City

    Baltimore City is the largest city in the state of Maryland, which itself has an estimated 110,000 residents living with Alzheimer's disease. With around 12 percent of the city's population over the age of 65, there's an immediate need for memory care facilities to support those with dementia-related illnesses. 

    There are over 20 memory care facilities in Baltimore City to care for people with cognitive impairments. The facilities are officially known as assisted living programs, and are operated and regulated by the Maryland Department of Health.

    • The cost of living in Baltimore City is around 4 percent lower than the national average and almost 30 percent lower than the average for Maryland. This makes Baltimore one of the most appealing options for people on a budget looking for a memory care facility. 
    • On a scale of one to 100, with one being the lowest crime and 100 being the highest, the violent crime rate in Baltimore City is ranked at 92.1 and property crime rate at 57.1. These are considerably higher than the national averages but don't reflect on the safety of residents living in memory care facilities. Generally, facilities are equipped with surveillance cameras, and in some instances security staff. It's still a good idea to find out how prospective facilities keep residents safe. 
    • The American Lung Association has awarded Baltimore City an ozone rating of "F". This rating indicates that the air quality in the city may be of concern to seniors with respiratory illnesses. However, the rating of "A" in the 24-hour particle pollution category suggests that short-term risks are minimal. 
    • Baltimore City is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as The Johns Hopkins Memory and Alzheimer's Treatment Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
