What to Consider About Memory Care in Lebanon
The city of Lebanon has a large senior community that makes up nearly 16 percent of the population of 16,000 residents. The city is located in Boone County, where just over 10 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over have Alzheimer's disease or dementia.
While Lebanon does not have any memory care facilities, there are more than a dozen located nearby. Memory care services in the Lebanon region are provided in dementia special care units, which may either be located in assisted living facilities or in their own dedicated building that accommodates only those with dementia.
- Indiana seniors pay state income tax on all types of retirement income except Social Security benefits. This may be a consideration for families who are helping their senior loved ones relocate to a memory care facility in Lebanon from outside of the state.
- Boone County, where Lebanon is located, was given a C for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association. This type of pollution may exacerbate conditions like COPD and asthma, which may be a concern for some families researching memory care in this region.
- While Lebanon's cost of living, including healthcare expenses like hospital stays and doctor's visits, is slightly higher than the statewide median, it is about 10 percent lower than the national average. This may make the city a good option for families and seniors with restrictive memory care budgets.
- Lebanon's summers are warm with highs in the mid-80s, and winters are chilly with lows in the teens. The city only gets about 18 inches of annual snowfall, which is several inches less than the national average, which may make seasonal travel easier on families visiting loved ones who reside in local memory care facilities.
