What to Consider About Memory Care in Davidson County

North Carolina has 10.3 million residents, and of these, approximately 170,000 individuals are living with Alzheimer's disease, according to figures from the Alzheimer's Association. In Davidson County, North Carolina, part of the Winston-Salem Metropolitan Statistical Area, there are approximately 29,823 people age 65 or over, or about 17.9% of the county's population of 166,614 people. Many of these seniors may require memory care, and there are four memory care facilities to accommodate them — three in Thomasville and one in Lexington.

Memory care facilities are known as Special Care Units, or SCUs, in North Carolina, and typically exist within Adult Care Homes (ACHs), which are classified as a type of assisted living residence (ALR).
