    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lawton

    Lawton is a large city of just over 94,000 people in the southwestern region of the Oklahoma. The town has three memory care facilities for seniors with dementia, Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive impairments with more available in nearby cities. 

    Memory care, which is sometimes called dementia care or Alzheimer's care in official state documents, is a special concern of seniors and their families, especially for the more than 64,000 Oklahoma seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, the single leading cause of dementia among aging citizens.

    • The climate in Lawton is as variable as it can be in the rest of the state. Summers get hot and dusty, which is an issue for heat-sensitive and asthmatic seniors. July and August see average high temperatures of 95 degrees. Winters are cold and wet, which can be a problem for seniors with COPD or other breathing difficulties. December lows average 27 degrees. Lawton gets a solid 33 inches of rain in a typical year, but just 1 inch of snow falls here, usually in January.
    • The average cost of living in Lawton is split. In general, people here pay 9 percent less for living expenses than the average nationwide, though much of those savings are in the affordable housing market. Costs that are especially relevant to seniors in memory care can be higher, such as health care, which runs as much as 15 percent more than the national average.
    • Crime in Lawton is an issue for many people, though less so for seniors in memory care facilities. Violent crime is about twice as common here as it is in the rest of Oklahoma, with a roughly one in 120 chance that a resident of Lawton will be the victim of a violent crime in any given year, versus a one in 220 chance elsewhere in the state. Property crime in Lawton is not as bad, but the rate here is still about 30 percent higher than it is for Oklahoma overall.
