There are approximately 89,000 residents of South Carolina who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and that figure is set to skyrocket by almost 35 percent to around 120,000 by 2025. Greenville County is the most populous county in South Carolina and just over 15 percent of its residents are aged 65 and over. With seniors being such a large demographic in this county, there's a need for memory care facilities, for residents who are diagnosed or may be diagnosed with Alzheimer's in the future. 

Alzheimer's Special Care Units, sometimes housed within a residential care facility, are the responsibility of the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. There are over 20 of these facilities in the Greenville County area.
