    What to Consider About Memory Care in Spanish Fort

    Spanish Fort is situated on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay in Baldwin County, Alabama. It has a large senior community making up over 15 percent of its population of 8,600 people, and according to the Alzheimer's Association, about one in 10 seniors has Alzheimer's disease. That statistic holds true in Baldwin County, where roughly 10 percent of seniors on Medicare have Alzheimer's or dementia. 

    In Spanish Fort, as in the rest of Alabama, memory care may be provided by specialty care assisted living facilities that are licensed through the Department of Public Health and certified through the Board of Health to provide services for those with dementia. Spanish Fort has one memory care facility, and there are five more in nearby cities like Daphne and Satsuma.

    • Alabama is relatively senior-friendly when it comes to taxes, which may enable families to budget more money toward memory care expenses in Spanish Fort. The state does not tax Social Security income or income from public or private pension. Withdrawals from retirement accounts, however, are taxable.
    • According to data published by the American Lung Association, ozone pollution levels in Baldwin County are fair and short-term particle pollution levels are very low, which may make memory care in Spanish Fort a good option for seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions.

Summers are very hot and muggy, which may be a consideration for families with a senior loved one who enjoys therapeutic outdoor activities like gardening. Winters are mild, however, with virtually no snow.
