    What to Consider About Memory Care in Greene County

    Greene County, nestled at the base of the Ozark Mountains in southwest Missouri, is home to 275,175 residents, with 14 percent of those residents being seniors in the 65 and older age group. Some of these seniors may be among the 110,000 Missouri residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other cognitive impairments. By 2025, that number is expected to increase by more than 18 percent. There are five memory care facilities in Greene County to care for this growing number of seniors, all five of which are located in Springfield.

    All of Missouri, including Greene County, refers to memory care facilities as Assisted Living Facilities and Residential Care Facilities, both of which are licensed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Regulation and Licensure, Section for Long-Term Care Regulation.
