In Norfolk, more than 10 percent of the city's 244,703 residents are 65 or older, and some of these people will be living with Alzheimer's disease in one of the area's 16 memory care facilities.

Memory care facilities in Norfolk and the rest of Virginia must secure state licensing, a process that ensures high-quality care for seniors with dementia and other memory-related conditions.

    • Norfolk's cost of living is around the national average, scoring 99.9 on a scale where 100 represents the U.S. average. Housing costs come in at 97, and healthcare costs are higher at 117. Seniors' families may want to consider these rankings as they prepare for memory care facility expenses.
    • Seniors may find some savings thanks to Virginia's tax laws. The state does not tax social security income, which may result in more monthly income for seniors.
