What to Consider About Memory Care in Westerville
Westerville is a city located in the heart of Ohio and has a population of nearly 40,000 residents, one in five of whom is 65 years or older. The state of Ohio has the sixth highest rate of Alzheimer's disease in the country, with roughly 220,000 people living with the condition.
To support those with dementia, Ohio has memory care facilities which may either be housed in an independent, freestanding structure or within existing assisted living facilities.

These facilities, as well as all memory care facilities in the state, are licensed by the Ohio Department of Health.

- The cost of living in Westerville is about 26 percent higher than the state average and 14 percent higher than the national median, primarily due to the relatively high cost of housing.

This may help seniors afford the expense of managing a chronic condition.
