What to Consider About Memory Care in Winston Salem

The Forsyth county town of Winston-Salem boasts 344 physicians per 100,000 people, which is 1.5 times more than the national average. Winston-Salem residents have access to excellent health care programs like the geriatrics-focused health care offered by the Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer’s Prevention at the Wake Forest Baptist Health Center. To further support residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, there are four memory care facilities in Winston-Salem itself as well as 10 others in nearby Clemmons, High Point, Walnut Cove, Kernersville, Greensboro, Thomasville, Lexington and King.   

In Winston-Salem, as in the rest of North Carolina, the Division of Health Service Regulation licenses two types of memory care facilities based on 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. Both serve seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia and may provide hospice and home health care services directly or through third-party providers.

  • Forsyth County has earned a passing grade from the American Lung Association for its low levels of particle pollution. Senior residents with respiratory illnesses would not have to worry about their condition worsening due to poor air quality.
  • The Sperling Comfort Index gives Winston-Salem a rating of 66 out of 100 for its mild climate, compared to the national average of 54. This city receives 75 percent less snowfall and 28 percent less precipitation than the national average, so seniors with dementia are less likely to be endangered by extreme weather.
  • Crime rates in Winston-Salem are significantly higher than the national average. Seniors and their loved ones may want to inquire about the security procedures in place at their chosen memory care facility. On a scale of one to 100, with 100 being the least safe, this city’s violent crime rating is 57.9, almost twice the national average, and its property crime rating is 68.3, 1.8 times the national average.
  • North Carolina does not tax Social Security retirement benefits, and other types of retirement income are taxed at a moderate rate of 5.499%. This may make memory care services more affordable.
