These seniors and their families can select from 30 memory care facilities, along with another nine located in nearby cities such as Brentwood.
Memory care facilities, along with a range of other assisted living and health care facilities, are regulated by the Department of Health's "Office of Health Care Facilities." This organization licenses and certifies memory care facilities to ensure they provide quality care to seniors living with dementia in Nashville and throughout the state.

Not surprisingly, the costs for memory care facilities in Nashville also come in higher than the national average.
