    What to Consider About Memory Care in Fountain Hills

    Located in the suburbs of Scottsdale, Fountain Hills is a master-planned community where adults aged 65 and over represent nearly 35 percent of the population. Due to the high concentration of seniors in Fountain Hills, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias are a growing concern. Today, more than 140,000 residents of the Grand Canyon State are living with Alzheimer's disease, and this number is projected to rise by 43 percent.

    As dementia diagnoses increase, more families are faced with the challenge of assisting their loved ones at home or arranging 24-hour care. State regulations permit specially equipped assisted living centers to provide directed care and behavioral health services to dementia patients. Families who are looking for a memory care facility in Fountain Hills can choose from more than 30 options.

    • The cost of living in Fountain Hills is 40 percent higher than the national average and 30 percent higher than most of Arizona. Although residents spend twice as much on housing, prices for healthcare, food and utilities are close to the U.S. median, which might increase the affordability of memory care.
    • Arizona's tax policies also affect the cost of living. While Social Security payments are exempt from state income tax, IRAs and other retirement accounts are taxed at the normal rate. Additionally, purchases are subject to 5.6 percent sales tax plus local surcharges.
    • Fountain Hills' abundant sunshine and low humidity attracts many retirees to the area. The community has a Sperling's Comfort Index of 77, which is 23 points higher than the national average. Although winter lows hover around 40, summer highs regularly top 100 degrees. For much of the year, seniors may need to take precautions to avoid the extreme heat.
    • The Fountain Hills area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness. The nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care is the HonorHealth Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center, which is located nearly 30 minutes away in Scottsdale.
