- Violent crime rates in Cleveland are more than 400 percent higher than the national average, and while slightly better, property crime also happens more than twice as often as the rest of the country.

- Cleveland is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as The Cleveland Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- The cost of living in Cleveland is 12 percent lower than the U.S. average, which means seniors on a fixed income should have more wiggle room in their budgets. While much of these savings can be attributed to the very low housing costs in the city, health care costs are on par with the national average, which can help keep expenses associated with memory care down.
- The cold winters and lake effect snow can be difficult for seniors to handle, but Cleveland does offer mild summers, averaging in the low to mid-70s for those who are more sensitive to heat. Cleveland gets an average of 61 inches of snow per year, compared to the national average of 26, which could be a concern for seniors who like to go on supervised outings or who have family and friends visiting regularly.
