This region has been ranked among the top places to retire in the United States and boasts seven memory care facilities for seniors with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. There are 19 more facilities nearby in Raleigh, Apex, Chapel Hill, Fuquay Varina and Durham.

    Cary, as with the rest of North Carolina, offers two types of memory care facilities that serve seniors with dementia. The Division of Health Service Regulation licenses these facilities based on occupancy: facilities that serve two to six residents are called family care homes, and facilities that serve seven or more residents are called adult care homes. Both may provide hospice and home health care services directly or through third-party providers.

    • This small Wake County town is ranked as one of the top 20 safest cities in the country, which makes it an ideal place for seniors to live. The Cary violent crime rate is scored at 21.1, 10 points lower than the national average, and property crime is scored at 23.1, 15 points lower than the national average.
    • Cary is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as REX Healthcare of Cary, as well as WakeMed Cary Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Cary’s year-round climate is generally mild. On a scale from one to 100, where higher scores indicate more days annually with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, Cary scores a 63. However, temperatures can drop to 30 degrees in January and July can see highs of 89 degrees. It is a good idea to ask your chosen memory care facility how they ensure that residents do not wander out in extreme weather.
