    What to Consider About Memory Care in Shenandoah County

    More than 20 percent of Shenandoah County's residents are seniors aged 65 or older and many of those seniors are living with dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease. Throughout Virginia, an estimated 150,000 seniors are living with Alzheimer's Disease. Most often, seniors with dementia eventually require specialized residential care and supportive services. 

    Shenandoah County is home to two memory care facilities that provide such care to seniors with dementia. These facilities are officially known as assisted living facilities and subject to nearly the same rules and regulations as those that provide basic assisted living services to senior citizens. The Virginia Department of Social Services is responsible for regulating all assisted living facilities throughout the state. 

    • Although the climate is reasonably mild in Shenandoah County year-round, the area does receive 26 inches of snow each year and above-average rainfall levels. As a result, the county has less sunny days each than the average U.S. county, which some seniors may find depressing.
    • The cost of living in Shenandoah County is about average when compared with the average U.S. county. Most families should find the area affordable, but for those on tight budgets, it may be wise to consider memory care facilities in a less expensive part of the state. 
    • Crime rates in Shenandoah County are above average when compared with the average city in the U.S. On a scale of one to 100 where one represents low crime and 100 represents high crime, Shenandoah County has a violent crime rate of 42.2 and a property crime rate of 43.2. By comparison, the average U.S. city has a violent crime rate of only 31.1 and a property crime rate of only 38.1. As such, it's important to discuss security with memory care facilities to ensure all residents are protected from crime. 
    • The Shenandoah County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Shenandoah Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
