    What to Consider About Memory Care in Granger

    Granger, which is located near the Michigan border in the northernmost region of Indiana, has a large senior community that comprises about 15 percent of the population of 30,000 people. According to statistics published by the Alzheimer's Association, as many as one in 10 seniors have Alzheimer's disease, which is diagnosed in 110,000 Hoosiers.  

    Granger has one memory care facility to meet the needs of local seniors with dementia, and there are four more in nearby cities, including Mishawaka, Elkhart and Niles, Michigan. The official licensure term for memory care facilities in Indiana is dementia special care units, and they may operate independently or be located within assisted living facilities.

    • While the overall cost of living in Granger is a little higher than the U.S. average, health care expenses come in about 20 percent below the average cost of the nation as a whole. This may make the city a good option for seniors with a tight memory care budget.
    • Granger's property and violent crime rates are relatively low, which may provide peace of mind for families with loved ones in memory care here. On a scale of one to 100, with a low score indicating low crime, Granger's property crime rate is 15.6, which is about 22 points below the national average, and the violent crime rate is 17.9, about 13 points below the nationwide average.
    • Indiana seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, but all other types of retirement income are fully taxable. This may be a consideration for families who are moving their senior loved one to a memory care facility to Granger from outside of the state.
    • The air quality in Granger is relatively poor, which may be a consideration for seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. The American Lung Association gave St. Joseph County an F for ozone pollution and a C for short-term particle pollution.
