    What to Consider About Memory Care in Vanderburgh County

    Vanderburgh County, Indiana, located along the Ohio River near the Kentucky border, has a population of about 182,000 residents, about 16 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. In this county, it's projected that over 13 percent of seniors receiving Medicare benefits have Alzheimer's disease or dementia, compared to the national average of 11.3 senior Medicare beneficiaries. 

    To support these seniors, Vanderburgh County has two memory care facilities, also called dementia special care units, both of which are in Evansville. While one of these facilities is independent and only offers dementia care, the other, like many in the state, shares a campus with an assisted living facility.  

    • The American Lung Association reports very high ozone pollution levels in Vanderburgh County, giving the county an F for this type of pollution. Particle pollution levels are low, however, with the county receiving an A for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution. Families may want to talk to their senior loved one's doctor to determine how the county's air quality may affect any existing medical conditions.
    • In Vanderburgh County, seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits. However, all other forms of retirement income are fully taxable. This may affect how much money seniors and families can budget toward memory care services in this region. 
    • Over the course of a year, Vanderburgh County's temperatures range from an average of 26 degrees to 90 degrees. The county receives about 46 inches of rain and 11 inches of snow, versus the respective national averages of 39 inches and 26 inches. The area's relatively light snowfall may appeal to families who drive locally to visit loved ones in memory care.
    • The cost of living in Vanderburgh County is about 17 percent below the national average, and healthcare expenses are about 19 percent below the nationwide median. The area's low cost of living may leave more money in the budget for memory care expenses.
