Southern and midwestern cultures blend together in Louisville, which is situated along the Kentucky-Indiana border. It is the state’s most populous city, consisting of approximately 624,400 residents, 15% of whom are seniors ages 65 and over. The city has a higher number of doctors per resident than the national average, as well as specialized medical centers offering advice and quality care to those with cognitive impairments. Norton Neuroscience Institute Resources Center and Norton Hospital provide support to people who are living with dementia, as well as a diverse range of general and medical care services.

Dementia care extends beyond typical assisted living services and provides specialized care for dementia and memory loss disorders, which requires specialized training, as well as a secure living environment. As a result, memory care costs are typically 25% higher than those for assisted living. The $4,375 per month it costs for memory care in Louisville is in line with the state average of $4,310, yet lower than the national average of $5,625.
