    What to Consider About Memory Care in Hampton

    Hampton is a sprawling city in Virginia, a state in which it's estimated that about 140,000 people have Alzheimer's disease. The city has nearly 135,000 people, with seniors accounting for almost 14 percent of the total population. The community has a variety of resources for seniors and families who have been affected by Alzheimer's disease, as well as two memory care facilities, or "special care units." Those who are looking for more options will find another 15 facilities outside the city limits.

    SCUs may be freestanding, or they may be located within an assisted living facility that meets special guidelines for facility amenities, staffing and staff training. All SCUs are licensed and monitored by the Virginia Department of Social Services. 

    • The air quality in Hampton is good, receiving an A for short-term particle pollution, a B for ozone pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. The Virginia Beach-Norfolk area tied for 1st place for cleanest metropolitan areas in the country for short-term particle pollution, and it ranked 122 out of 227 metropolitan areas for high ozone days. This may appeal to seniors who have respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease.  
    • The overall cost of living in Hampton is about 5 percent lower than the national average and nearly 20 percent lower than the state average. Healthcare expenses in this city are somewhat high, however, with average costs coming in a little over 10 percent of the state and national averages. This may be a concern for seniors seeking treatment for chronic conditions like Alzheimer's disease. 
    • On a scale of 1 to 100 with 1 representing low crime, Hampton's property crime rate is 47.6, compared to the national average of 38.1. However, its rate of violent crime is lower than regional and nationwide averages at 21.0. Families who are helping their loved ones transition to memory care in this city may want to review the safety and security procedures their chosen facility has in place to keep residents safe.
    • While seniors in Hampton do not pay income tax on their Social Security benefits, other types of retirement income are taxable. However, the state provides a deduction for up to $12,000, which may help seniors put more money into their memory care budget.
