What to Consider About Memory Care in Northport

While the city of Northport is generally considered to be a college town, it has a large senior community that makes up almost 15 percent of its population of 25,000 people. The city is located in Tuscaloosa County, where almost 14 percent of seniors who receive Medicare have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. This is considerably higher than the national average of 10 percent of seniors living with Alzheimer's disease. 

The Northport region has four memory care facilities. There is one facility in Northport proper and three more in nearby Tuscaloosa. These memory care facilities are located within specialty care assisted living facilities, which are licensed through the Department of Public Health and certified by the Board of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Northport

  • While Alabama does not impose state income tax on Social Security income or pension income, income from retirement accounts is fully taxable. This may affect how much money can be put towards memory care in Northport. 
  • Living expenses in Northport are roughly on par with the national average. While the overall cost of living is slightly below that of the nation as a whole, healthcare costs in this city are slightly above the national median. This may be a consideration for families who are researching local memory care options for their loved ones.
  • Northport is rated safer than 19 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes, and its crime rate is quite a bit higher than the crime rates of similarly sized cities across the country.  To help keep residents safe, most memory care facilities in the Northport region have surveillance equipment, secured exits and alarm systems.
  • Tuscaloosa County's air quality is exceptional, which may benefit seniors residing in memory care in Northport. The American Lung Association gave the region an A for both short-term particle pollution and ozone pollution, as well as a passing score for annual particle pollution.
