What to Consider About Memory Care in Norfolk

Norfolk, Virginia, one of the of the busiest seaports and naval bases in the world, has a population of 245,000, 10 percent of whom are seniors over 65. Estimates of Virginia seniors with either Alzheimer's disease or dementia are over 140,000, with the number climbing to 190,000 by 2025. Many of these folks will eventually need to transition into a memory care facility, and Norfolk has 44. 

The Virginia Department of Social Services regulates memory care facilities, residential communities providing health care, personal care services and 24-hour supervision. In addition, Virginia's Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services monitors Alzheimer's care and provides resources for caregivers. 

  • The Commonwealth of Virginia grants certain tax breaks for senior citizens over 65, including all or part of their real estate taxes, personal property tax on one vehicle, the vehicle registration/license fee and the solid waste fee. Criteria change from year to year; however, these breaks may free up more funds to pay for memory care fees. 

  • The overall cost of living in Norfolk is on par with the U.S. average. This may be beneficial for those in memory care because high housing prices are unlikely to affect the cost of operations for memory care homes. Health-care costs, however, are more than the national average, which may have an impact on the budgets of those in memory care. 

  • Norfolk's weather is generally pleasant year-round. Summers are warm, with breezes from the Atlantic Ocean, while winters are mild with light snow. Hurricanes in the late summer and early fall may affect those in memory care. 

  • The Norfolk area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
