What to Consider About Memory Care in Lynchburg

Lynchburg is home to nearly 81,000 people, and while this college town has a relatively young population, about 14 percent of its residents are over the age of 65. It is a small city in the heart of Virginia, a state where more than 140,000 people are currently living with Alzheimer's disease. In addition to providing support groups for local families affected by Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, the city has two memory care facilities, and there is one more outside the city limits.

In Lynchburg, as in the rest of the state, memory care facilities may also be called Special Care Units, or SCUs. SCUs may occupy their own building, or they may be located within an assisted living facility that has secure dementia units. In addition to providing secured, self-contained SCUs, assisted living facilities that offer memory care also have requirements regarding dementia care staff and staff training.

  • Summers in Lynchburg are hot and muggy, with highs that reach into the upper-80s. Winters are cold, with lows in the 20s, and the area gets an average of just 13 inches of snow annually. These temperature extremes may impact seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors.
  • The overall cost of living in Lynchburg is relatively low, coming in at roughly 25 percent below the state average and 12 percent below the national average. However, healthcare costs are slightly higher here than elsewhere in the country, which may be a consideration for seniors who are living with chronic conditions such as dementia. 
  • Lynchburg seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts are deductible up to $12,000. This may help some seniors and families afford memory care. 
  • The Lynchburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Centra Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
