    What to Consider About Memory Care in Williamsburg

    Williamsburg is located in the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News metropolitan area in Virginia, a state in which 140,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. The city itself is home to about 15,000 people, about 15 percent of which are at least 65 years old. To support local seniors who have Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Williamsburg has nine memory care facilities, and there are two more outside of the city limits.

    Memory care facilities in Williamsburg may also be referred to as "special care units," or SCUs. These facilities provide at least 16 hours a week of scheduled activities that focus on cognitive stimulation, physical functioning and natural world activities. Some SCUs are freestanding while others are located in secured units in assisted living facilities.

    • The cost of living in Williamsburg is on par with the state average and about 14 percent higher than the national average, which may be a consideration for those transitioning to memory care from outside of the state. Healthcare expenses are slightly higher in this area at over 10 percent higher than state and national averages. 
    • Williamsburg residents enjoy comfortable temperatures throughout the year. Summers are warm with highs in the upper-80s and winters are cold with lows near 30 degrees. The region receives just 6 inches of snow annually, compared to the national average of 26 inches, which may appeal to families who travel to local memory care facilities to visit loved ones.
    • Williamsburg is a safe city with a crime rate that is lower than state and national averages, which may provide peace of mind for families with loved ones in memory care. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 representing the lowest crime rate, the property crime level is 28.6, compared to the U.S. average of 38.1, and the violent crime rate is 13.1, compared to the national average of 31.1.
    • Seniors in Williamsburg do not pay income tax on Social Security benefits. While other types of retirement income are taxable, there is up to a $12,000 deduction, which may leave more money in the budget for memory care.
