What to Consider About Memory Care in Casa Grande

The Arizona Department of Health Services regulates memory care communities in Casa Grande and the rest of the state. It sets clear rules regarding the level of staff training and qualifications, minimum safety standards and the essential health measures that must be implemented into residents' care plans. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Casa Grande

 

  • Casa Grande's overall pleasant weather may make it a comfortable hometown for seniors who prefer warmth to snow. The region typically sees no annual snowfall and only 8.9 inches of rain, compared to the U.S. average of 38.1 inches of snow and rain. Temperatures average 21 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the national norm in summer, but mild winters 15.2 degrees Fahrenheit above the U.S. average offset this.
  • Casa Grande has 31 physicians per 100,000 population — considerably less than the national norm of 210. However, the city's proximity to Phoenix means additional doctors and specialists are only a short drive away should seniors need medical care. Memory care communities may provide on-site doctors' visits and basic medical assistance.
  • The city's low cost of living may help reduce monthly expenses for families. Ranked on a 100-point index, where the U.S. average is 100, Casa Grande measures 94.7 due to cheap housing, groceries and transportation.
  • Crime rates are slightly higher than average in Casa Grande when ranked on a 100-point scale. At a measurement of 27, the city's violent crime rate is 4.3 points higher than across the country, while property crime rates are 51.1 in Casa Grande vs. 35.4 nationwide. Fortunately, crime is generally not a significant concern in memory care communities because of their excellent security features.
  • Seniors needing diagnosis, surgeries or emergency care in Casa Grande can benefit from the city's excellent network of specialist clinics and the presence of the Banner Casa Grande Medical Center. Additional health care facilities are available in Phoenix, just northwest of the city, or in Tucson, a short drive southeast.
  • Casa Grande has fairly good air quality. While PM2.5 particulates occasionally exceed WHO guidelines, many memory care communities use air filters to improve comfort for residents.
