    What to Consider About Memory Care in Salisbury

    Maryland has an estimated 110,000 people with Alzheimer's disease, and it's expected that the number will be closer to 130,000 by 2025. Around 11 percent of Salisbury's 33,000 people are aged over 65, and residents with dementia are served by the city's four memory care facilities and two in nearby Delmar.

    Maryland's Department of Health regulates assisted living facilities in the state. There are three types of licenses offered based on the level of care provided. Facilities with Alzheimer's special care units must provide dementia-specific training to all staff.

    • Salisbury has a crime rate of 65 per 1,000 residents, which is higher than 98 percent of Maryland's other towns and cities. Both the violent crime rate and property crime rate are more than double the state average, and the city has been named one of the top 100 most dangerous cities by NeighborhoodScout. When touring facilities, families may wish to inquire about security measures that keep residents safe.
    • The climate in Salisbury is generally pleasant. In January the average low temperature can get down to 27 degrees, but the city only gets 5 inches of snow each year, 21 inches less than the national average. In July the average high is 88 degrees, and there's an average of 209 sunny days each year, giving seniors plenty of opportunities to spend time in the fresh air.
    • The Salisbury area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Peninsula Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. However, the closest hospital with specialized dementia care is in Baltimore.
    • The cost of living in Salisbury is around 8 percent lower than the national average. Health care costs are 6 percent lower than the U.S. average, which may leave more money in your loved one's memory care budget, especially if they have other health conditions.
