    What to Consider About Memory Care in Springfield

    With a population of over 167,000 people, Springfield is one of the largest cities in the state of Missouri. Currently, there are 110,000 people living with Alzheimer's disease in Missouri, and it's estimated that as the population ages, the number of residents with Alzheimer's will increase by 18 percent. 

    To accommodate Springfield seniors with dementia, the area has nine memory care facilities. Seven of these facilities are located within the city proper, while the other two are located in nearby Nixa and Ozark. In Missouri, memory care facilities are generally housed within residential care facilities.

    • Springfield has one of the highest crime rates in the country. Residents have a one in 10 chances of being the victim of any type of crime. To protect residents, particularly those who are prone to wandering, memory care facilities use surveillance cameras, alarm systems and secured indoor and outdoor access.
    • Springfield is prone to extreme temperatures, with hot, muggy summers and very cold winters. The hottest month of the year is July when highs are near 90 degrees and the air is muggy about 60 percent of the time. January is the coldest month, with lows in the 20s. To keep residents comfortable, memory care facilities generally have individual climate controls in each living quarter.
    • While Springfield's overall cost of living is lower than the national median, the city may not be well-suited for seniors and families on tight budgets. Healthcare expenses are a little higher than the national average, which can make it expensive to manage a chronic condition like dementia.
    • Springfield is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Mercy Hospital Springfield and Cox Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
