What to Consider About Memory Care in Maricopa County

With 4.3 million residents, including 636,400 senior citizens, Maricopa is one of the nation's most populous counties. As the number of seniors increases locally and statewide, Alzheimer's disease has become an important public health concern. Between 2015 and 2025, Arizona is expected to experience the nation's second largest increase in dementia cases. Already, officials estimate that more than 50,000 adults in Maricopa County are living with these impairments, which means that demand for memory care is likely to rise. 

Thanks to Maricopa County's metropolitan location, local residents who require these services for their loved ones may choose from more than 100 memory care facilities that are licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Seniors living in Maricopa County must be vigilant about their respiratory health. The American Lung Association gave the county's air quality an "F" grade based on the high concentration of pollution. The county is also home to Phoenix, which is one of the 20 worst cities for ozone pollution and particulates.
  • Intense summer heat affects the area's air quality and livability. Like other parts of Arizona, summer temperatures in Maricopa County regularly reach 105 degrees. Older adults who are sensitive to extreme temperatures may need to take special precautions during the warm season.
  • Maricopa County is home to many world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, the Mayo Clinic-Phoenix and the Banner Heart Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses. 
  • Overall, the county offers fixed-income residents a reasonable cost of living that's just 6 percent above the state average. Housing costs are almost 40 percent higher than the U.S. median, yet healthcare costs and most other essential expenses are almost even with the U.S. baseline, which may benefit those who have high expenses or ongoing medical bills.

I have a sister in this facility and I would not put her anyplace else. I moved her twice because of the lack of care until I found this place. They are caring, clean and take wonderful care of her.
