What to Consider About Memory Care in Phoenix
With over 1.5 million residents, Phoenix has the largest population of any U.S. state capital. Just under 10 percent of the city's residents are over the age of 65 and, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services, more than 12,000 of these seniors will have moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease by the year 2020.
For families seeking care for their loved ones with Alzheimer's disease or various forms of dementia, there are more than 60 memory care facilities available in the Phoenix area. Memory care facilities in Phoenix and throughout Arizona fall under the umbrella of assisted living facilities or ALFs. Unlike other types of ALFs, memory care facilities must have exit controls in place and offer secure outdoor areas for residents.
- Phoenix receives plentiful sunshine year-round. While the city's winters are usually mild and pleasant, its summers can be dangerously hot, with an average high temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Given this, you may want to ask a prospective memory care facility what safeguards are in place to protect residents from heat exposure.
- Arizona's retiree-friendly tax policies, such as exempting Social Security benefits, allow seniors to keep more of their income, which in turn may help them to cover the cost of living.
- Phoenix is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Alzheimer's and Memory Disorders Program at the Barrow Neurological Institute and the Memory Disorders Clinic at the Banner Alzheimer's Institute, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- According to the American Lung Association, the Phoenix area has one of the highest rates of air pollution in the nation. Poor air quality can cause or exacerbate many health problems, especially if your loved one already has a respiratory illness.
