    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lake County

    Lake County, which is situated in northern Indiana, is home to about 486,000 people, including a senior community that makes up 16 percent of the population. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, about 13 percent of seniors receiving Medicare benefits are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

    Memory care facilities in Lake County, as in all of the state, may also be called dementia special care units. Some DSCUs have their own dedicated building that serves only those with dementia; others are situated within assisted living facilities that specialize in multiple levels of care. Lake County has four memory care facilities, which are located in the cities of Merrillville, Hobart, Crown Point and Schererville.

    • In Lake County, as in the rest of Indiana, seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, but all other types of retirement income are fully taxable. Depending on a senior’s source of retirement income, this may decrease how much money they can put toward memory care expenses. 
    • According to data gathered by the American Lung Association, Lake County has very high ozone pollution and short-term particle pollution levels. The region’s air quality may be a consideration for families whose senior loved one has a condition like cardiovascular disease or COPD. 
    • The crime rate in Lake County is higher than state and national averages. On a 100-point scale, with a higher score representing more crime, the county's violent crime rate is 49.4, which is about 18 points higher than the national average. The property crime rate is 45.7, which is about 15 points higher than the national average. As they're researching local memory care facilities, families may want to find out what measures are taken to keep residents and their belongings safe.
    • Lake County experiences warm summers and chilly winters, with year-round temperatures ranging between 16 degrees and 84 degrees. To keep residents comfortable throughout the year, many local memory care facilities have individual climate control in each bedroom.
