Hurricane, West Virginia

Memory Care

Memory care services offer help to seniors who require specialized memory care. A memory care community conforms to specific dementia-related health and safety guidelines. Memory care living homes possess supervised areas to limit wandering which is a common symptom of Alzheimer's. This type of community provides 24-hour supervised care with health management, recreational opportunities, and meals for seniors. Typically, residents in memory care need aid with eating, dressing, and washing. West Virginia has a number of provisions related to this kind of community.

Cost of Living

Cost of living is a big influence when deciding which care option works best. Hurricane has a median home value of $167,594 and the median cost of rent is around $793 per month. The rent burden for Hurricane is around 14.6% of the average monthly income.
