    What to Consider About Memory Care in Roanoke City

    The city of Roanoke is home to nearly 100,000 residents, 15.4 percent of whom are aged 65 and older and may be living with some type of dementia. Approximately 140,000 seniors across Virginia have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, including some that may live in Roanoke. Seniors in need of specialized treatment for this diagnosis can find assistance at Special Care Units (SCUs), two of which are currently available in Roanoke, with an additional option close by in the city of Salem.

    • Roanoke is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The overall climate in Roanoke is considered very pleasant. Winter temperatures only drop to a low of 27 degrees, with no more than 15 inches of snow expected in a season, and summer temperatures can reach the high 80s. In terms of overall comfort, the city scores a 61 out 100, with 100 considered the best. These mild conditions may make it easier for seniors to cope with the changing seasons.
    • While the overall cost of living can be a high in many Virginia cities, Roanoke offers a budget-friendly option for seniors. At a score of 87.2, the city's cost of living falls well under both the statewide average of 114 and base national average of 100. Housing and transportation costs represent the areas of largest savings.
    • On a scale of 100, with 100 representing high crime, the city scores a 46.2 for violent crime and a 59.5 for property crime. These numbers compare to the statewide rates of 19.7 and 42.8 in the same categories, respectively. While most SCUs are equipped with surveillance systems and security, discussing the specific policies and procedures of a facility may offer families added peace of mind.
