What to Consider About Memory Care in Franklin County

With almost 12 percent of the county's population aged 65 and over, there's a definite need for local memory care facilities to provide the necessary care to seniors who have been or may be at some stage of their life, diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. 

Such facilities are known as Residential Care Facilities and are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health. There are over 30 of these facilities in Franklin County that fulfill the needs of local seniors with cognitive disabilities.

  • The American Lung Association has awarded Franklin county a rating of "F" for ozone pollution, but a rating of "A" in its 24-hour particle pollution category. This suggests that the air quality could be harmful to people with respiratory conditions.
