    What to Consider About Memory Care in Chesapeake City

    With a population of 240,400, including 28,800 senior citizens, Chesapeake is the third-largest city in Virginia. In this community, 10 percent of the Medicare population has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or related forms of dementia, and these conditions affect more than 140,000 adults statewide.

    In Chesapeake and other parts of the state, assisted living facilities must meet specific staffing and administrative requirements to manage special care units for adults with cognitive impairments. The Virginia Department of Social Services has licensed over a dozen memory care facilities in the area, including five within the city and several in surrounding communities.

    • Thanks to its mild Mid-Atlantic climate, Chesapeake's comfort index is 12 points higher than the national average. The area receives 8 more inches of rain than the typical U.S. city and six extra days of sunshine. Annual highs and lows fluctuate widely, so memory care facilities must protect residents from freezing weather and the summer heat.
    • The air quality in Chesapeake is variable. While the community has low 24-hour levels of particulate pollution, its annual numbers are less than stellar. Additionally, Chesapeake is in the bottom half of metropolitan areas based on the number of high-ozone days. Local memory care facilities may have to take precautions to protect seniors who have asthma, COPD or respiratory ailments.
    • Resident safety is another important concern for memory care facilities. Although Chesapeake's crime rate is just above the national average, it's slightly safer than the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News metropolitan area. To protect residents who may become disoriented, most memory care facilities operate secured units that are locked or monitored.
    • Despite its central location, the cost of living in Chesapeake is only 15 percent higher than the national average. Compared to other parts of the U.S., housing is approximately 40 percent more expensive, and transportation and healthcare costs are 17 percent higher. The area's reasonable cost of living may benefit fixed-income seniors who require memory care and similar services.
