What to Consider About Memory Care in Mishawaka

Mishawaka is situated in the northern region of Indiana, where it's estimated that 110,000 residents have Alzheimer's disease. This disease is most prevalent in older adults over the age of 65, with 10 percent of seniors receiving this diagnosis. Mishawaka has a large senior community that comprises over 15 percent of its population of 59,000.

Local seniors and families who have been affected by Alzheimer's disease have a variety of local resources available to them, including Alzheimer's and Dementia Services of Northern Indiana, which provides education and support for community members. Mishawaka is also home to two memory care facilities, and there is one more in the nearby city of Granger. These facilities may be referred to as dementia special care units and are located within assisted living facilities or in their own dedicated building.

  • The air quality in Mishawaka is relatively poor, which may be a consideration for seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease. The American Lung Association gave St. Joseph County an F for ozone pollution and a C for short-term particle pollution. 
  • The overall crime rate in Mishawaka is 86 percent higher than the state average and 96 percent higher than the national average. However, a majority of the crimes committed are property-related. The violent crime rate is 16 percent lower than the state average and 12 percent lower than the U.S. average, which may provide peace of mind for families moving their loved one to memory care facilities here. 
  • Mishawaka’s overall cost of living is nearly 20 percent below the national average, and healthcare expenses are roughly 20 percent lower than they are elsewhere in the country. This may make the city a good option for seniors on a restrictive budget. 
  • While Social Security income is not taxed in Indiana, other forms of retirement income are fully taxable. This may be a consideration for seniors who draw income from pensions or retirement savings accounts.
