Page Reviewed / Updated – August 3, 2023

Located on the banks of the Ohio River, Cincinnati is ranked eighth in the nation for its public park system, and is home to just under 310,000 people. Of these, 12.2% are aged 65 or over. Health care in Cincinnati is 13.6% more affordable than the nation’s average, and the city has very high numbers of Medicare-registered physicians. Cincinnati is also home to the UC Cincinnati Memory Disorders Center, where people with Alzheimer’s and dementia can access expert care. 

Memory care provides specialized support to people with Alzheimer’s and dementia, protecting their safety and improving their quality of life. It integrates personal support and daily research-based cognitive therapy into a home-like environment. Because of the intensive nature of this care, it generally costs around 25% more than assisted living. In Cincinnati, this comes to $5,833 per month. According to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey, this is a little above state and national average prices. 

For those in need of memory care, dive into our list of Cincinnati’s top 10 memory care communities. In it, we highlight the distinct features of each location which make them ideal for memory care services, helping you make the best choice for yourself or your loved ones.
