What to Consider About Memory Care in Flagstaff
About 140,000 people in Arizona are living with Alzheimer's and dementia, and Flagstaff is home to a portion of them. While this small city's cold mountain winters don't draw as many retirees as other Arizona communities, about 8 percent of the 72,000 residents are age 65 or older. People looking for memory care facilities can choose from six options in and around Flagstaff. These facilities are regulated by the Arizona Department of Health Services and are required to have secure entrances and exits to prevent residents from wandering.
- Seniors in Arizona enjoy some moderate tax benefits that may help a fixed income cover more. Social Security benefits are not taxed, but most other forms of retirement income are at least partially taxed. Groceries and medication are exempt from sales tax, but the sales tax in general tends to be fairly high. Flagstaff has a combined sales tax rate of 8.951 percent on other items.
- Flagstaff is an expensive city to live in when compared with the U.S. average, but a significant portion of that is housing costs which may indirectly apply to memory care residents' monthly fees.
- The climate in Flagstaff can be unpredictable due to its high elevation, but summers are generally cool and mild. Highs are often only in the upper 70s or lower 80s. Winter days can be fairly mild as well, with daytime highs often in the lower 40s, but winter storms drop an average of 77 inches of snow a year.
- Coconino County, of which Flagstaff is part, tends to have high ozone levels which led the American Lung Association to give it a D grade for air quality. This may cause problems for seniors, particularly those dealing with existing respiratory issues.
