    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lynchburg City

    In Virginia alone, 140,000 adults aged 65 and older are currently living with Alzheimer's disease. The city of Lynchburg is home to around 81,000 residents, 13.9 percent of whom are a part of this age demographic, and therefore may be impacted by some type of dementia.

    To serve this segment, Special Care Units (SCUs) are available to provide specialized treatment. In Virginia, an SCU can either be its own facility or part of an assisted living community. Three facilities offering this type of care are available in Lynchburg, as well as one in the nearby community of Forest.

    • With its low housing, transportation and grocery costs, Lynchburg's  overall cost of living is 88.3, based on the U.S. national average of 100. The average cost of living in Virginia is 114, so Lynchburg may be a good option for seniors and families looking to save on daily living expenses so more funds can be put toward the cost of memory care.
    • Lynchburg is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Centra Lynchburg General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Though average crime rates in Virginia are low compared to national averages, crime is much more prevalent in Lynchburg. Out of 100, with 100 being a high crime, Lynchburg scores a 34 for violent crime and 43.3 for property crime, while Virginia averages are just 19.7 and 24.8 in the same categories, respectively. Families may want to consider reviewing an SCU's security policies and procedures to ensure resident safety is a top priority.
    • The climate of Lynchburg is quite pleasant year-round. The winter low is 25 degrees Fahrenheit, which is several degrees warmer than the U.S. national average, and the area only receives about 13 inches of snowfall per year. Summers are warm, with temperatures climbing to the mid-60s, and the area scores 50 out of 100 in terms of overall comfort, which may help seniors enjoy a good quality of life.
