What to Consider About Memory Care in Lorain County
It's estimated that 250,000 Ohio residents will be suffering from Alzheimer's by the year 2025, and some of these people will call Lorain County home. Of the almost 308,000 population nearly 18 percent are seniors aged at least 65 years or more. To help provide care for this demographic, the Ohio Department of Health regulates and licenses memory care facilities under the Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) category, and four of these places are located in Lorain County.
- Lorain County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Mercy Health and University Hospitals, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- The climate in Lorain County could be a problem for seniors with arthritis or other health issues that tend to flare in cold weather. The area sees average winter lows in the teens, and it gets 43 inches of snow a year, well above the U.S. average of 26 inches. Lorain County also only gets 164 sunny days, compared to the national average of 205, which could be a concern for seniors who feel better when the sun is out.
