What to Consider About Memory Care in St Joseph County

St. Joseph County is located in northern Indiana near the Michigan border and has a large senior community that makes up over 15 percent of the county's population of 270,000 residents. According to data published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, almost 13 percent of seniors in this county who receive Medicare benefits are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. This is compared to the national rate of 11 percent of senior Medicare beneficiaries with this diagnosis.  

There are three memory care facilities in St. Joseph County, two of which are in Mishawaka and one of which is in Granger. These facilities are licensed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging and are officially called dementia special care units.

  • St. Joseph County experiences warm summers with highs in the low-80s and very cold winters with lows near 17 degrees. The region gets 64 inches of annual snowfall, largely due to the lake effect snow that it receives due to its proximity to Lake Michigan, which may make winter travel difficult for families visiting local loved ones in memory care.
  • St. Joseph County's property crime and violent crime rates are higher than the national averages, which may be a consideration for families who are helping their senior loved ones relocate to memory care here. On a 100-point scale, with a high score indicating high crime, the county's violent crime rate is 46.9 and the property crime rate is 44.5, compared to the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively.
  • The air quality in St. Joseph County is relatively poor, which may be a concern for seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease. The American Lung Association gave the county an F for ozone pollution and a C for short-term particle pollution. 
  • In Indiana, including St. Joseph's County, seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, even those that are taxable on the federal level. All other types of retirement income are fully taxable, however, which may impact seniors' memory care budgets in St. Joseph County.
