    What to Consider About Memory Care in Bloomington

    Bloomington, Indiana, is widely known for pioneering the state's first dementia-friendly Lifetime Community District. This community not only provides support for families and their loved ones who are living with dementia but strives to create a safe, informed and respectful environment that promotes a high quality of life. This city is home to a little over 85,000 people, approximately eight percent of which are over the age of 65. To support those living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Bloomington has four memory care facilities to choose from. These facilities may also be called dementia special care units, or SCUs. 

    • Bloomington seniors do not pay income tax on their Social Security benefits, but they do pay taxes on income from retirement accounts. Families who are relocating their senior loved one to memory care in this city may want to speak to a tax professional to determine how the state's laws will affect their memory care budget.
    • Bloomington's summers are hot and humid with highs in the mid-80s, and winters are cold with lows in the low-20s. The area receives just 16 inches of snow annually, which may make local travel easier for families visiting their loved one in memory care.
    • The Bloomington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as IU Health Bloomington Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Bloomington's property crime rate is higher than regional, state and nationwide averages, rating 51.1 on a scale of one to 100, with 100 representing high crime. However, the city's rate of violent crime rate is lower than the metro, Indiana and national averages, which may provide peace of mind for families who are helping their loved ones relocate to a memory care facility in the area.
