Fortunately, Lorain is home to organizations that help those affected by cognitive conditions, such as the Neurology Center, Inc. and the Memory Cafe Espanol. The latter hosts regular bilingual events where seniors and caregivers participate in activities, meet other families affected by dementia and learn about free local support services. Many of Lorain’s senior living communities also feature specialized units to deliver dementia care to those who need it.

Employing trained caregivers and featuring additional safety measures to meet the unique needs of seniors with cognitive impairment, memory care communities typically charge 25% more than assisted living providers. Memory care costs an average of $6,175 per month in Lorain, 6% above the Ohio median.
