    What to Consider About Memory Care in Goochland County

    More than 20 percent of Goochland County's population is made up of seniors aged 65 or older. Many of those seniors have been diagnosed with some form of dementia such as Alzheimer's Disease, which affects an estimated 150,000 residents across Virginia. There are four memory care facilities in Goochland County that provide care and support to seniors with dementia. These facilities are often housed alongside assisted living facilities, as both levels of care are subject to similar rules that are enforced by the Virginia Department of Social Services

    • The cost of living in Goochland County is about 20 percent higher than the national average. For seniors and families with limited funding for memory care, the area may be too costly and considering a less expensive part of the state may be a better option.
    • Goochland County's crime rates are considerably low when compared with the national average. On a scale of one to 100 where one represents low crime and 100 represents high crime, the area has a violent crime rate of 15.3 and a property crime rate of 14.5. By comparison, the average U.S. city has a violent crime rate of 31.1 and a property crime rate of 38.1. Even though the area is relatively safe, it's best to consider what security systems and procedures memory care facilities have in place to protect residents. 
    • Summers in Goochland County are known to be hot and humid, with average high temperatures in July of 90 degrees and 44 inches of rainfall each year. Some seniors might find the climate in the area to be too uncomfortable.
    • Virginia's tax policies are very retirement-friendly. Social security benefits aren't taxed and the state offers generous deductions on other types of retirement income. Seniors and their families can use the savings towards the cost of memory care.
