    What to Consider About Memory Care in Marion County

    Marion County is located in central Indiana and has a population of a little over 950,000 people, over 12 percent of whom are seniors. According to data gathered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, nearly 13 percent of seniors in this county who receive Medicare benefits have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

    Families who are seeking out memory care services in Marion County have 10 facilities to choose from. While some of these facilities are independent and only provide care for those with dementia, most are located in senior living facilities that provide a full range of care options. In Marion County, as in all of Indiana, memory care facilities are officially called dementia special care units and are monitored by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging. 

    • Marion County is a relatively affordable place to live in. The overall cost of living for this county is on par with the statewide average and about 12 percent below the national average, which may result in affordable memory care costs. Healthcare expenses are also fairly low in this region at about 13 percent below the national median.
    • Marion County 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.
    • Marion County seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, even those that may be subject to federal income tax, which may leave more money toward memory care expenses for those who rely solely on this income. All other types of retirement income are fully taxable.
    • The air quality in Marion County is poor, which may worsen certain types of illnesses and be a concern for some families researching local memory care options for their loved ones. The American Lung Association gave Marion County an F for both ozone pollution and short-term particle pollution.
