    What to Consider About Memory Care in Virginia Beach City

    Virginia Beach's population is the highest in the state at 450,435, including slightly more than 57,200 who are over 65 years old. Based on Medicare enrollment statistics, nearly 4,460 of those elderly residents have Alzheimer's disease or a dementia-related condition.  

    Special care units, as they are called in Virginia, must be licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and have to follow special staffing and administrative rules to supervise patients with cognitive issues. Seven special care units are located in Virginia Beach, and a few more are in neighboring communities.

    • Virginia Beach has a typically mild temperate climate with only six inches of snow per year, which is 20 inches less than the U.S. average. Its 213 sunny days per year outnumber the national average by eight, and the annual 45 inches of rainfall is a mere six inches higher than the country's average. Winter lows are around 33 degrees, and summer highs are near 87, earning the city a 67 out of 100 on the Sperling's Comfort Index. 
    • Rating 13.8 out of 100, Virginia Beach's violent crime rate is more than 50 percent lower than the national average of 31.1. Property crime ranks only two points higher than the U.S. average of 38.1 at 40.0. Special care units are generally secure, but it's a good idea to ask about security measures.
    • Compared to a median ranking of 100 for the U.S., Virginia Beach's cost of living index is slightly above average at 115.6. Families with loved ones in special care units can expect to pay slightly more for care than it would cost in an average U.S. city.
    • Social Security benefits are not taxed, and residents over 65 may deduct as much as $12,000 of income per person. Virginia's property taxes are low, and the elderly receive discounts from the state. Seniors and their families may find more room in their budget for memory care in Virginia Beach.
