    What to Consider About Memory Care in Pittsburgh

    Pittsburgh is home to the University of Pittsburgh Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, which specializes in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. There are approximately 280,000 people living with this disease in Pennsylvania, where 14 percent of the population is over 65. In Pittsburgh, there are 15 memory care facilities from which to choose and 14 located in nearby areas including Monroeville and West Mifflin. Assisted living residences (ALRs) in Pittsburgh and the rest of the state that are licensed to provide care for residents with Alzheimer’s are called Special Care Units (SCUs) and are held to stringent requirements.

    • The cost of living in Pittsburgh ranks at 94.2, cheaper than the U.S. average of 100. Caregivers who handle financial matters for seniors in memory care may find the lower living cost reflected in areas such as facility cost and health care.

    • Pittsburgh ranks 52 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index because there are only 160 sunny days per year as compared to the U.S. average of 205. The city receives an estimated 27 inches of snow annually, which may hinder outdoor enjoyment for senior residents.

    • The rate for both violent crime and property crime in Pittsburgh is higher than the national average. Violent crime ranks 71.7 as compared to the U.S. average of 31.1, while property crime comes in at 46.6 as compared to the U.S. ranking of 38.1. The good news is that memory care facilities have surveillance and security to ensure the safety of residents and their belongings.

    • Pittsburgh has an air quality rating of 39 out of 100, while the U.S. as a whole is rated 58. This may be detrimental for seniors in memory care who have respiratory illnesses or who are sensitive to pollution.
