What to Consider About Memory Care in Greensboro
Greensboro is the third-most-populous city in North Carolina, and 12.9 percent of the 209,222 people who live there are seniors. To support members of the senior population with Alzheimer’s disease and various types of dementia, this Guilford County city has five memory care facilities, and there are nine more in the surrounding communities of Thomasville, Burlington, Highpoint and Kernersville. North Carolina offers two types of memory care facilities that serve seniors with dementia, and the Division of Health Service Regulation licenses them based on occupancy size: 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.
- Residents of North Carolina are not taxed on their Social Security retirement benefits, and other types of retirement income are taxed at a flat rate of 5.499 percent. Modest taxes, in addition to a cost of living that is 12 percent less than the national average, make Greensboro an ideal location for seniors with a limited budget.

Compare this to neighboring Raleigh, whose violent and property crime ratings are 35.9 and 43.6 and more in line with the national average. Seniors and their families should inquire about the security plans in place at their memory care facility.
