What to Consider About Memory Care in Indianapolis
Indianapolis is the capital city of Indiana, which is a state where roughly 110,000 people live with Alzheimer's disease. This large city is home to over 860,000 people, with a sizable senior community that comprises over 11 percent of the total population.
For seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Indianapolis offers more than a dozen memory care facilities. While some of these facilities are in their own separate communities, many are located within assisted living facilities. In Indianapolis, as in all the state, memory care facilities may also be called dementia special care units, and they are licensed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.
- Indianapolis has a relatively high crime rate, with property crime rates that are double the national average and a violent crime rate that is three times the national average. Families who have loved ones in memory care in this city may want to review their chosen facility's security features to ensure their loved one's safety.
- Indianapolis seniors do not pay taxes on their Social Security benefits, but they are taxed on all other forms of retirement income. This may impact their memory care budget.
- The Indianapolis area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as IU Health University Hospital and Eskenazi Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- While Indianapolis's extreme temperatures, which include summer highs in the mid-80s and winter lows around 20, may be unappealing to seniors who prefer mild year-round temperatures, the region receives fewer inches of snow than the average U.S. city. This may make memory care in Indianapolis an attractive option for families who travel locally to visit their loved one in a facility.
