Like many states, Mississippi expects a 14% increase in individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia from 2020 to 2025. More than 65,000 seniors will be living with the disease by 2025. According to the Alzheimer's Association, Mississippi has the second-highest death rate for Alzheimer’s in the United States, and in 2019, there were close to 1,700 Alzheimer’s-related deaths. This represents a 275% increase since 2000.

Memory care facilities provide those living with Alzheimer's and dementia with care that is tailored to their unique needs. Memory care can take place in its own facility, or as part of a designated wing of another residential care community. Staff members of memory care units or facilities undergo specialized training in caring for those with memory impairment, and the facilities often coordinate social activities and schedules specifically for the needs of those living with Alzheimer's or dementia.

This guide will cover the cost of memory care in Mississippi, financial assistance options for paying for memory care, free memory care resources in the state and a directory of memory care facilities in Mississippi.
