    What to Consider About Memory Care in Durham

    In a state where about 160,000 people have dementia, Durham is a rapidly growing city with a population of 267,000. This rapid growth is largely due to this city’s presence in the high-tech sector, especially healthcare and biotechnology. The senior population of 10.2 percent has also kept pace with Durham’s growth, remaining stable during this period. Durham has a total of 26 memory care facilities in the surrounding area, with two of these within the city limits. These facilities are specifically designed for residents with a variety of cognitive conditions, including dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The state of North Carolina regulates memory care facilities through its Division of Health Service Regulation.

    • Durham has an average of 220 sunny days compared to the U.S. average of 205, giving it a favorable climate for senior citizens with sensitivity to cold weather.

The average annual snowfall of 3.6 inches is much less than the U.S. average of 25.8 inches. The average high temperature in July is about 89 degrees, which is slightly higher than the state’s average of 87 degrees.
    • Durham’s overall cost of living is 1.2 percent of the national average, so senior citizens on a fixed budget should have no special concerns about living here.

However, transportation and groceries are about seven percent below average. Other major expenses do not differ significantly from the national average.
