What to Consider About Memory Care in Portage County

Ohio has an estimated 220,000 people living with diseases like dementia and Alzheimer's disease, and some of these seniors live in Portage County. Nearly 16 percent of the approximately 162,000 people living in the county are 65 years of age or older, and there are three memory care facilities in the nearby area to provide this level of care.

In Portage County and the rest of the Buckeye State, memory care facilities are considered part of the Residential Care Facility (RCF) category, and the Ohio Department of Health is responsible for licensing and monitoring these assisted living places.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • The weather in Portage County, as in the rest of Northeast Ohio, can be a challenge even for seniors in a memory care facility. Winter temps regularly dip below freezing, and sometimes even below zero, and the area gets several inches of snow a year. However, the mild summers can be a willing tradeoff for seniors with breathing issues who don't handle heat well.
  • The higher-than-average crime rates in Portage County may be of concern to families of seniors needing memory care. In the county seat of Ravenna, both violent and property crime rates are 19 percent higher than the rest of the state, although the year-over-year crime rate has decreased 2 percent.
  • The relatively low cost of living in Portage County can be a big draw for seniors needing memory care as well as their families. Healthcare costs in the area are 16 percent lower than the U.S. average which can provide significant savings for seniors who need to be aware of their budgets.
  • Portage County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as University Hospitals, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
