What to Consider About Memory Care in Tempe
Tempe, AZ, sits in the middle of the Phoenix-Scottsdale-Mesa metro area where nearly 4.6 million people live. In the city, the population is 185,038; almost 10 percent are seniors age 65 and over. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that 140,000 of Arizona’s total population have dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease and for those living in Tempe, there is one dedicated memory care facility while nearby Phoenix has 50. All are classified as assisted living facilities and regulated by the Arizona Department of Health Services.
- With 300 days of sunshine, Tempe has one of the more comfortable climates for those who have Alzheimer's Disease. Highs in the summer reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. In the winter, daytime highs normally top out in the 60s and lows hover in the 40s.
- Because Tempe sits in a basin surrounded by mountains, its air quality suffers in the winter. Major pollutants include fine particulates that can be irritating for seniors with lung or breathing conditions. In the summer, the sun combines with vehicle exhaust to form ozone. Arizona’s Department of Environmental Quality issues air quality alerts, warning sensitive groups that include seniors to stay inside until air quality improves.
- Arizona does not tax social security income and it is possible to deduct some kinds of pension income in Arizona. The low sales tax in Tempe of 8.1 percent and lack of taxation of social security income and possible deductibility of pension income help make memory care facilities in Tempe more affordable.
- Tempe is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Tempe St. Luke's Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
