    What to Consider About Memory Care in Fairfax

    Fairfax is located along the Potomac River, just south of Maryland, in the state of Virginia, where it's estimated that 140,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. To support its local seniors, which comprise over 15 percent of the city's 24,000-person population, the area offers a variety of programs and services as well as nearly three dozen memory care facilities for those with dementia. Three memory care facilities are located in the city proper, and families who are looking for more options will find an additional 28 nearby. 

    In Fairfax, memory care facilities are officially known as "Special Care Units," or SCUs. SCUs may occupy their own dedicated building, or they may be located within a secured wing of an assisted living facility. Both types of memory care facilities are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. 

    • The overall cost of living in Fairfax is 55 percent higher than the Virginia average and nearly 70 percent higher than the nationwide average. This is mainly due to the high cost of real estate, which may impact how much seniors pay for room and board in local memory care facilities. Healthcare expenses are about 5 percent lower than both state and national averages, which may help offset the higher living expenses. 
    • Fairfax residents experience hot summers, where highs reach into the upper-80s, and cold winters with lows in the mid-20s. It is partly cloudy year round, and the region gets some form of precipitation on an average of 76 days annually. Because of its varied climate, Fairfax may be well-suited for seniors who enjoy experiencing all four seasons. 
    • Virginia seniors are not taxed on income they receive from Social Security, and income from retirement accounts is deductible up to $12,000. This may allow seniors to put more money into their memory care budget.
    • The Fairfax area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Inova Fair Oaks Hospital and Medical Campus, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
