    What to Consider About Memory Care in Richmond

    Richmond is the capital city of Virginia, a state in which the Alzheimer's Association estimates that more than 140,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. Over 227,000 people live in this city, with adults over the age of 65 making up nearly 12 percent of the population. The community has a full array of resources for seniors and their families who have been affected by Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, as well as more than a dozen memory care facilities within the city proper. Families who are looking for more options will find 10 more facilities nearby.

    In Richmond, memory care facilities, also called special care units, or SCUs, may be located within their own dedicated building or be housed within an assisted living facility that meets special guidelines regarding staffing, training, security measures and admission procedures. 

    • According to the American Lung Association, Richmond tied for first place for cleanest metropolitan areas in the country for 24-hour particle pollution. The city's good air quality may appeal to seniors who have respiratory illnesses.

    • Richmond residents enjoy four distinct seasons, and the city rates 60 out of 100 on Sperling's Comfort Index compared to the national score of 54. Summers are hot with highs around 89 degrees, and winters are chilly with lows around 26 degrees. The region receives just 11 inches of snow annually, which may make local travel easy for those visiting loved ones in memory care. 

    • The rates of property crime and violent crime in Richmond surpass regional, state and national rates, which may be a consideration for families who are helping their loved ones transition to memory care. The property crime rate is 53.3 compared to the national average of 38.1, and the violent crime rate is 58.8 compared to the U.S. average of 31.1. 

    • Richmond seniors do not pay income tax on their Social Security income, and withdrawals from retirement accounts are deductible up to $12,000. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care expenses.
