    What to Consider About Memory Care in Fort Wayne

    Fort Wayne, which has over 265,000 people and a senior community that makes up 13 percent of the population, is located in the heart of Indiana — a state where about 110,000 residents have Alzheimer's disease. The city offers an array of programs for those with dementia, including the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department’s Unwind Your Mind program, which provides classes and activities for those in the early stages of dementia. In addition to this, the city has eight memory care facilities.

    In Fort Wayne, as in the rest of Indiana, memory care facilities may also be called dementia special care units or SCUs. Some of these facilities occupy their own building while others are situated within assisted living communities that are equipped to care for seniors with dementia. 

    • Fort Wayne is an affordable place for seniors, with a cost of living that is roughly 17 percent below the national average. Seniors can expect to spend about 20 percent less on health care expenses in this city than they would elsewhere in the country, which may help them more easily afford necessary medical care.

    • Fort Wayne's climate is typical of central Indiana, with hot, humid summers and cold, windy winters. The region is partly cloudy year-round, and the temperature ranges from 19 degrees Fahrenheit to 84 degrees Fahrenheit.
       
    • Fort Wayne's property crime rate is relatively high, rating 47.3 on a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 representing high crime. However, its rate of violent crime, which is 27.1, is lower than regional, state and national averages. This may provide peace of mind for families helping their loved ones transition to a memory care facility in this area. 

    • While all Social Security benefits are exempt from Indiana's state income tax, seniors do pay income tax on income they receive from other retirement income.
