The 3 Best Memory Care Facilities in Hot Springs, AR for 2024

 

A 2024 special report by the Alzheimer's Association reveals that over 10% of the nation's seniors aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease. Around one in five (21.4%) of Hot Springs' 38,109 residents belong to that age group, and according to CDC data, 8.11% of deaths in the city in 2020 were Alzheimer's-related. Fortunately, access to local specialized dementia care can help those with progressive memory loss disorders live longer and enjoy a good quality of life.

Memory care communities provide comfortable housing within a secure environment staffed 24/7 by dementia-trained caregivers. These communities also tend to offer specialized activities, such as brain training games, sensory experiences, music therapy and reminiscing, designed to slow the progression of memory loss and ensure those impacted still experience moments of joy in daily life.

In addition to discussing the advantages and disadvantages Hot Springs affords seniors, this guide provides information about paying for memory care in the city and the expected costs of alternative types of care. Contact information for organizations offering free local services to families navigating a dementia diagnosis is also listed.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Hot Springs

 

  • The local cost of living is around 80% of the national average, making Hot Springs a relatively affordable retirement location. Housing and transportation, in particular, are significantly less expensive than in many other U.S. cities.
  • Compared to national figures, crime rates in Hot Springs are high. Local property crime and violent crime rates are about 2.69 and 1.66 times greater than U.S. averages, respectively. Fortunately, the city's memory care community residents are typically well-protected by around-the-clock on-site staff, controlled-access doors and emergency alert systems.
  • Based on a 100-point index, air quality in Hot Springs is 11 points below the national average. However, the city receives a perfect score of 100 for water quality, which can positively impact the health of residents.
  • Seniors with urgent, acute and chronic medical conditions can access quality health care services locally, as the city is home to National Park Medical Center and an award-winning regional hospital, CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs. The city's physician-to-resident ratio is also 13.5% better than the national norm of 210 physicians per 100,000 people.
  • Although Hot Springs has mild winters with lows of just 30 degrees, its long summers can be uncomfortably hot and humid. The average annual rainfall rate of 57 inches is significantly higher than the U.S. average of 38 inches, but the city receives just 2 inches of snow per year. Memory care communities, fortunately, tend to be climate-controlled environments that ensure seniors are comfortable year-round.
  • Social Security retirement benefits in Arkansas are tax-exempt, and senior residents pay no tax on the first $6,000 withdrawn from an IRA. Arkansas also has no inheritance taxes, and prescription drugs are free from state sales tax.
