    What to Consider About Memory Care in Monroe County

    Monroe County, which is located in the south-central region of Indiana, is home to a population of nearly 147,000 people, about 13 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. According to data published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, about 13 percent of the seniors in this county who receive Medicare benefits have Alzheimer's disease or dementia.  

    To meet the needs of these seniors, the county has three memory care facilities, all of which are in the city of Bloomington. In Monroe County, as in the rest of Indiana, memory care facilities may also be called dementia special care units and may be independent or located in assisted living facilities or nursing homes.  

    • In Monroe County, particle pollution levels are low, which may make the county a good option for seniors who have respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease. The American Lung Association gave the county a "B" grade for 24-hour particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution. 
    • In Indiana, Social Security benefits are exempt from state income tax, but all other forms of retirement income are taxed. This may affect how much money can be budgeted toward memory care expenses in Monroe County.  
    • The crime rate in Monroe County is a little higher than the U.S. average, which may be a consideration for safety-minded families seeking memory care for a loved one. On a 100-point scale where a high score indicates more prevalent crime, violent crime is rated 45.3 and property crime is rated 49.7. This is versus the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. 
    • The overall cost of living, as well as the cost of healthcare, is about 10 percent lower in Monroe County than in the United States as a whole. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care expenses.
