What to Consider About Memory Care in Laporte

La Porte, Indiana, is a city of about 22,000 people, nearly 18 percent of whom are seniors. In Indiana, it's estimated that as many as 110,000 Hoosiers have Alzheimer's disease, which is primarily diagnosed in those who are 65 and over. La Porte families who have been affected by Alzheimer's and dementia can find informational resources and support groups through the Alzheimer's and Dementia Services of Northern Indiana.

In addition to local support groups, La Porte is home to one memory care facility, and there are six more in nearby cities, including Valparaiso and Michigan City. These facilities are officially called dementia special care units and are located within assisted living facilities or in their own independent building.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in LaPorte

  • Summers in La Porte are warm and humid with highs in the low-80s, and winters are chilly with lows in the teens. The city gets 61 inches of snow annually, which may impede travel for families visiting their loved ones in memory care.
  • The American Lung Association gave LaPorte County a D for ozone pollution and a B for short-term particle pollution. This is an important consideration for families whose senior loved one has a respiratory or cardiovascular condition. 
  • While La Porte seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, Indiana does tax income from retirement accounts and public and private pensions. This may impact how much money can be put toward memory care expenses.
  • While the rate of property crime in La Porte is quite a bit higher than the nationwide average, the violent crime rate is notably lower. This may provide peace of mind for families moving their loved one to memory care in this city. 

Paying for Memory Care in Laporte
