What to Consider About Memory Care in Tippecanoe County

Tippecanoe County, Indiana, is home to about 191,000 people and has a senior community that makes up over 11 percent of its population. Over 14 percent of the seniors living in the county who are receiving Medicare benefits have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or dementia, compared to the national average of 10 percent.

In Tippecanoe County, memory care facilities are officially called dementia special care units. Families seeking memory care options in this county have four facilities to choose from, all of which are located in nearby Lafayette. One of these memory care facilities is independent and situated in a building that accommodates only those with dementia; the others share their grounds with assisted living facilities.  

  • The cost of living in Tippecanoe County is about 12 percent below the national median. Healthcare expenses, including hospital stays and visits to doctors' offices, are about 14 percent lower than the national median. Because living expenses here are relatively low, seniors and their families may have more money to spend on memory care services. 
  • Crime is more prevalent here than in the nation as a whole. On a 100-point scale, with a high score indicating high crime, Tippecanoe County is rated 46.8 for violent crime and 49.4 for property crime, compared to the national medians of 31.1 and 38.1. To keep residents safe, local memory care facilities install surveillance cameras, alarm systems and access control systems. 
  • Tippecanoe County has an average of 186 sunny days annually, and year-round temperatures range between 18 degrees and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The region receives 19 inches of annual snowfall, which is about 7 inches less than the national average. This may appeal to families who travel during the winter to visit loved ones living in a memory care facility.
  • Particle pollution levels are fairly low in Tippecanoe County, with the county receiving a "B" for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. This may benefit seniors with certain respiratory or cardiovascular conditions.
