What to Consider About Memory Care in Allen County

Home to the city of Fort Wayne and its greater metro area, Allen County has a senior population of more than 53,000 people. Many of the seniors in this community deal with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The county has several medical facilities, including those that provide geriatric services for dementia and other brain health issues, such as St. Joseph Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Long-term care is available for seniors with dementia at 10 memory care facilities located within the county. Facilities that are capable of providing this type of care are officially recognized by the state as Residential Care Facilities. Licensing and compliance of these facilities is provided by the Indiana State Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Due to the number of high ozone days detected in the area, Allen County has a C grade for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association. The county has a D grade for particle pollution. Exposure to these pollutants can cause both immediate breathing problems and long-term health issues. Families with seniors living in the area may want to check what strategies memory care facilities take to keep their indoor air quality within optimal ranges.
  • Violent crime, such as murder, robbery and assault, in Allen County is 14 points above the national average of 31. Property crime is 2 points above the state average and 4 points above the U.S. average. Most memory care facilities use security cameras and alarms to keep seniors protected from these dangers. 
  • Families on a limited budget for memory care may find Allen County desirable due to its relatively low cost of living. Healthcare is 19 percent less expensive than the national average, and housing is 33 percent cheaper than the national average.
  • Indiana's tax policy is somewhat friendly towards seniors. While social security income is exempt from income tax, withdrawals from retirement accounts and income from pensions is fully taxed. Families may want to take these policies into account when budgeting for memory care.
