    What to Consider About Memory Care in Alexandria

    Located just 20 minutes outside of the nation's capital, Alexandria, Virginia is a Washington, D.C. suburb with a population of about 160,000. Close to 11 percent of these residents are aged 65 and older, and some may be part of the 140,000 seniors in Virginia living with Alzheimer's disease. Those interested in staying in Alexandria may opt to live in a memory care facility in the city of which there are three facilities with another 19 nearby.

    The Virginia Department of Social Services oversees and regulates memory care facilities, termed assisted living facilities, in Virginia. These regulations ensure that the facilities provide ongoing, high-quality nursing care for seniors with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. 

    • Due to its proximity to the nation's capital, Alexandria has a high cost of living. On a scale where 100 represents the national average, Alexandria ranks at 165.2. Not surprisingly, memory care facility costs in Alexandria are also above the national median, so seniors and their families can expect to pay more to live in the area.
    • Virginia offers some tax savings for seniors living in Alexandria. The state does not tax social security income, which can result in some savings every month. Seniors' families should consider this non-taxable income when helping budget for memory care facility expenses.
    • Living in Alexandria ensures seniors will experience all four seasons. Winters are cold, with lows in the 20s and about 15 inches of snow a year. Summers are warm with high temperatures in the upper 80s. The area sees more rain and fewer sunny days than the national average.
    • Alexandria is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Inova Alexandria Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
