The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Gilbert, AZ for 2024

Gilbert is a suburb of Phoenix home and to 273,136 people. However, Gilbert has a relatively small senior population with less than 10% being 65 and older. Between 2016 and 2020, Alzheimer’s deaths in Gilbert increased by 8.64%, and this is likely to increase further as Arizona is projected to have 200,000 seniors living with the disease by 2025. This makes dementia care especially important for seniors and families in the Gilbert area.

Memory care communities are residential care facilities for seniors with memory-loss disorders. In a memory care community, seniors get hands-on care and supervision from trained staff members 24/7. Gilbert and the surrounding area are home to many of these communities, giving families many options for their loved ones.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Gilbert

 The Arizona Department of Health Services is responsible for overseeing long-term care facilities, including memory care communities. They conduct yearly assessments to make sure state rules and regulations are being followed and seniors are well cared for. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Gilbert

  • Gilbert gets much less rain than many other parts of the country, which is one of the reasons many seniors are attracted to this city. The drier climate does well with many health-related issues with which some seniors contend. However, it does get excessively hot in this corner of the country. 
  • The cost of living in Gilbert is a bit higher than the national average. However, the city makes up for that with lower costs in healthcare and grocery. 
  • Arizona does not tax Social Security income, which means that area seniors have more money to put towards monthly expenses and other costs of living. This also means that seniors living on retirement funds are able to do so more comfortably in Gilbert. 
  • Seniors will be happy to hear that crime in the city is much lower than the national average. Additionally, memory care facilities have their own security measures in place such as 24/7 video monitoring, door alarms, emergency alert systems in residents’ rooms and wearable emergency pendants or bracelets. 
  • Valley Metro offers discounted rides to seniors, so those in the 65+ age range who want to visit friends and family members in memory care can easily do so. Fares range from .50 to $3.00 per ride.
