    What to Consider About Memory Care in Porter County

    Porter County is located in north-central Indiana and has a large senior community that makes up nearly 16 percent of its population of 168,000 people. In this county, it's projected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that almost 12 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Local families and seniors have a variety of informational resources and support groups available to them through the Alzheimer's and Dementia Services of Northern Indiana.

    Porter County is home to five memory care facilities, all of which are located on senior living campuses that provide other levels of care. In Indiana, memory care services are offered in dementia special care units, and they are licensed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging

    • The air quality in Porter County is subpar. The American Lung Association gave the county an F for ozone pollution and a C for 24-hour particle pollution. Families whose senior loved ones have conditions that may be worsened by pollution may want to consider the county's air quality.
    • Compared to Indiana as a whole, Porter County's cost of living is relatively expensive at about 20 percent higher than the state median, and living costs are about 7 percent higher than the national median. Healthcare is affordable here, coming in about 18 percent below the nationwide average, which may benefit those managing chronic conditions like dementia. 
    • While the rate of violent crime in Porter County is roughly on par with the national average, the rate of property crime is a little lower. Even so, as they're touring local memory care facilities, families may want to inquire about what measures are taken to protect residents and their belongings. 
    • Porter County seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, but all other types of retirement income are subject to tax. This may affect how much money is available for memory care expenses.
