    What to Consider About Memory Care in Saint Louis

    Saint Louis is a large Midwestern city that houses approximately 310,000 residents, 11.4 percent of whom are at least 65 years old. Saint Louis seniors struggling with cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer's Disease and dementia have more than 30 memory care facilities available, including some with views of downtown Saint Louis and the Gateway Arch. In Missouri, memory care facilities are called residential care facilities (RCFs) or assisted living facilities. Each of these facilities has staff who are trained in memory care. 

    • The Saint Louis area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Orthwein Brain and Spine Center at St. Luke's Hospital and the Memory Diagnostic Center at Barnes Jewish Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Saint Louis is notorious for its high crime rate; the city is safer than just one percent of other U.S. cities. For peace of mind, loved ones can help seniors with memory conditions choose facilities that have video surveillance and a low patient-to-staff ratio. This helps reduce the risk of wandering seniors becoming victims of violent crimes, which affect one in 52 Saint Louisians.
    • The cost of living is low in Saint Louis when compared to both Missouri's average and the national average. Housing averages just $117,700 in Saint Louis, which is nearly half of $216,200, the U.S. average. Saint Louis residents also pay less for groceries, utilities and medical expenses than the national average.
    • Saint Louis summers are hot, sunny and humid, while winters are cold and dreary. Fall and spring often bring rain and mild or slightly chilly temperatures. Throughout the year, temperatures typically range from the mid-20s to high 80s, but single-digit and triple-digit thermometer readings may also occur.
