What to Consider About Memory Care in Roanoke

The Alzheimer's Association estimates that 140,000 people in Virginia currently have the Alzheimer's disease. The city of Roanoke has nearly 100,000 people, including a senior community of roughly 15,000. It offers a variety of resources for families and seniors who have been affected by various forms of dementia and other cognitive impairments, including two memory care facilities. Just outside the city limits, there is one more memory care facility. Some of these memory care facilities, which may also be called "special care units," have their own freestanding building while others are located within a secured wing of an assisted living facility. SCUs are licensed and monitored by the Virginia Department of Social Services. 

  • Roanoke is a relatively affordable city, with an overall cost of living that is about 13 percent below the national median and 27 percent less than the state average. The cost of healthcare is on par with the state and national averages, which may be a consideration for seniors who are managing a chronic condition like dementia. 
  • Roanoke has a fairly comfortable year-round climate, rating 61 out of 100 on the Sperling's Comfort Index. Summer highs are in the mid-80s, and winter lows are in the mid-20s. The city gets about 15 inches of snow annually, compared to the national average of 26 inches, which may make local travel easier for families visiting their loved ones in memory care.
  • Roanoke's crime rates are higher than regional, state and national averages, which may be a concern for those who are relocating to the area. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 representing high crime, the property crime rate in Roanoke is 59.5 and the violent crime rate is 46.2.
  • Roanoke's air quality is good, which may be beneficial for seniors who have cardiovascular disease or respiratory illnesses. The American Lung Association gave the county an A for ozone pollution, a B for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution.
