The coastal city of Hampton, which is located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay in southeastern Virginia, has a population of around 138,037. Those aged 65 or older account for 15.3% of the population, and they're at the highest risk for Alzheimer's or dementia. The CDC reports the percentage of Alzheimer's-related deaths to total deaths in Hampton declined 0.3% from 2016 to 2020. However 6.7 million  Americans are currently affected by memory loss, and the number of new cases is predicted to double by 2050.

Seniors who are living with memory loss need access to quality dementia care to maintain a high quality of life. The staff employed within memory care communities is specifically trained to treat cognitive impairments and provide 24/7 compassionate care. Therapeutic approaches and engaging activities designed to support cognitive stimulation, such as music and aromatherapy, are also available.

This guide compares the types and costs of long-term care options and evaluates the pros and cons of living in Hampton. It also features a table of helpful resources to assist seniors with memory loss.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Hampton

The government agency responsible for overseeing Hampton memory care facilities is the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS). It regulates and licenses all types of care centers to ensure they meet the necessary standards for providing quality care to individuals with memory-related conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Hampton

 

  • The cost of living in Hampton is 12% more affordable than the national average and 16% less than statewide costs. Seniors' hard-earned dollars have more purchasing power in regard to food, real estate and transportation. This could be a great benefit for those looking for a coastal residence; Hampton may be more affordable than other cities with comparable amenities.
  • Nationally ranked and high-performing hospitals in the area include Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, which serves as the primary teaching institution for Eastern Virginia Medical School and is the only Level I trauma center in the Hampton Roads region. Chesapeake Regional Medical Center is a certified primary stroke center that offers individually tailored comprehensive neurological care.
  • Based on a 100-point scale, health care costs in Hampton are about 14% higher than the U.S. average. Seniors have access to only 146 physicians per capita, which is lower than the national average of 210. However, the area contains minimal health risks and has air quality that is 11 points higher than the national ranking.
  • Because of its proximity to the Atlantic coast, Hampton has mild winters and warm summers, with 221 sunny days per year for seniors to spend time outdoors. Snowfall only occurs about 4 days each year, and the average rainfall is about 46 inches. Hampton also ranks 7.5 on a 10-point comfort index, making it one of the most pleasant cities in Virginia
  • Property crime in Hampton is slightly higher than the national average, but it's significantly below average for a city of its size. Violent crime has been declining. Residents in memory care communities don't often need to be concerned about property crime; there are 24/7 security and added safety measures facilities take to ensure seniors are free from harm.
  • Although income tax is high in Hampton, sales and property taxes are relatively low, putting more money in the pocket of seniors who may need to pay for long-term care. Social Security retirement benefits are not taxed, and other types of retirement income, such as pension income and retirement account withdrawals, are deductible.
