    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kokomo

    In Indiana, there are roughly 110,000 residents with Alzheimer's disease. Kokomo residents over the age of 65 accounts for 18 percent of the total population, and families looking for memory care facilities for their loved one with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia will find three facilities within the city limits.

    Some of these facilities, which are officially called dementia special care units, are freestanding while others are situated within residential care facilities. Residential care facilities with SCUs must have a designated facility director, provide specialized training for staff members and follow specific admission and retention policies for residents with dementia. These facilities are licensed and monitored the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.

    • Kokomo's summer temperatures soar into the mid-80s and the winter lows reach the upper-teens, which may make the city an attractive option for seniors who enjoy experiencing all four seasons. The area receives more snowfall than the average U.S. city, however, which may be a concern for families visiting their loved ones in a memory care facility. 
    • Indiana seniors do not pay income tax on their Social Security income. However, other types of retirement income, including income from pensions and retirement savings accounts, are subject to income tax.
    • Kokomo's air quality is fair, which may appeal to seniors who have respiratory illnesses or heart disease. Howard County, which is the county that Kokomo is located in, was given a B for short-term particle pollution by the American Lung Association.
    • While Kokomo has a fairly high property crime rate, its low violent crime rate can provide peace of mind for families with loved ones living in a memory care facility in this city. On a scale of one to 100, with one representing low crime, the city's property crime is 59.3 and the violent crime rate is 28.6, compared to the respective national averages of 38.1 and 31.1.
