    What to Consider About Memory Care in Memphis

    As the second largest city in Tennessee where there are over 120,000 citizens diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Memphis partakes in supporting its affected population. It has several memory care facilities to cater to seniors 65+ who make up 11.3 percent of its local residents. In Memphis as in the rest of the Volunteer State, the facilities that are licensed to serve individuals with dementia are nursing homes with Alzheimer’s special care units; homes for the aged for residents in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and other related disorders; and assisted-care living facilities for seniors in need of a higher level of memory care. These facilities are regulated by the Tennessee Department of Health, Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities.

    • Winters are mild in Memphis, and the summers can be hot, humid and often rainy. While this makes the city a relatively comfortable place for seniors, loved ones need to ensure that the memory care facilities they choose keep residents safe and healthy during the hot and wet seasons.
    • Seniors and their families enjoy significant savings in Memphis as the city’s overall cost of living is 17 percent lower than the national average, and the state of Tennessee has no tax levy on personal income, retirement benefits and pensions.
    • The violent crime and property crime rates of Memphis are substantially higher than the Tennessee state and U.S. national averages, and the city ranks among the top 100 dangerous cities in the country. Choosing memory care facilities with excellent security systems is vital for the peace of mind of seniors and their families.
