What to Consider About Memory Care in Elkhart

Elkhart is a city in northern Indiana, a region where it's estimated that about 36,500 people have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. This illness affects as many as one in 10 seniors and is the leading cause of dementia.  

In the Elkhart area, almost 12 percent of the population consists of seniors age 65 and older. Local families seeking out dementia care will find three memory care facilities in the Elkhart region, including one in the city and two more in nearby Goshen. These facilities, which may also be called dementia special care units, may have their own dedicated building or be located within assisted living facilities.

  • While Social Security benefits are not taxed in Indiana, all other forms of retirement income are fully taxable, including public and private pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts. This may impact how much money seniors can put toward memory care.
  • The Elkhart area is home to world-class medical facilities, such as Elkhart General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The air quality in Elkhart is relatively poor, receiving an F for 24-hour particle pollution and a C for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association. The region ranks 36 out of 227 metropolitan areas for high ozone days and 17 out of 201 metropolitan areas for 24-hour particle pollution. This may be a consideration for seniors who have cardiovascular or respiratory illnesses. 
  • Summers in Elkhart are pleasant with highs in the low-80s. Winters can be harsh, however, with lows around 17 degrees Fahrenheit. The area receives about 51 inches of annual snowfall, nearly double the national average, which may impair local travel for families visiting their loved ones in memory care.
