What to Consider About Memory Care in Apex

Apex, North Carolina was so named because it sits at the highest point of the Chatham railroad, but now it exemplifies a different kind of peak: Apex held the number one spot in Money Magazine’s 2015 Best Places to Live list, and this town of 50,451 people has much to offer seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. There are 17 memory care facilities in and around Apex, with two in the townsite itself and 15 in nearby Cary, Chapel Hill, Fuquay Varina, Durham and Raleigh.

There are two types of memory care facilities in North Carolina, and the Division of Health Service Regulation licenses these residential care settings based on size: family care homes serve two to six residents, and adult care homes serve seven or more residents. Both serve seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. These residences may provide hospice and home health care services directly or through third-party providers.

  • The cost of living in this Wake County town is somewhat prohibitive, and seniors with limited budgets should factor this into their decision when choosing a memory care facility. Apex’s overall cost of living score is 125, compared to nearby Durham’s rating of 101, which is more in line with the national average.

  • The American Lung Association has given Wake County a passing grade for its air quality. However, it has a "C" grade for its 24-hour particle pollution levels, which may pose problems for seniors with respiratory conditions.
  • Apex is a friendly, close-knit community that enjoys a relatively low crime rate, which can give senior residents and their loved ones peace of mind. Its violent crime rating is 22.9, which is 27 percent lower than the national average, and its property crime rating is 28.6, which is 25 percent lower than the national average.
