Alzheimer's is a form of dementia that is primarily diagnosed in older adults age 65 and over. Orem's senior community makes up over 9 percent of the population of 98,000 people.

While memory care facilities may occupy their own dedicated building, most are situated with Type II assisted living facilities. These facilities are licensed by the Department of Health, Facility Licensing and Certification.

  • Orem's violent crime and property crime rates are a little lower than the U.S. median, which may provide peace of mind for families moving their loved one to memory care here.
