What to Consider About Memory Care in Vigo County

Vigo County, situated in west-central Indiana, is home to roughly 108,000 residents and has a senior community that makes up about 16 percent of the population. According to data published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, over 14 percent of seniors receiving Medicare benefits have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. This is notably higher than the national average of 11.3 percent. There are three memory care facilities in Vigo County, all three of which are in Terre Haute. 

In Vigo County, as in all of Indiana, memory care facilities are officially called dementia special care units and are most often located in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. These facilities are licensed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Summers in Vigo County are warm with highs near 90 degrees and winter lows drop to around 20. This county receives about 15 inches of annual snowfall, versus the national average of 26 inches, which may appeal to families who travel during the winter months to visit loved ones in local memory care facilities. 
  • Vigo County's overall cost of living is roughly 20 percent below the national average, and healthcare expenses are about 8 percent lower than the national median. Vigo County's relatively low living expenses may leave more money in the budget for memory care services. 
  • Vigo County's air quality is decent, which may benefit seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease. The American Lung Association gave the county a B for ozone pollution and a C for short-term particle pollution. 
  • In Indiana, seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits. However, all other forms of retirement income, including public and private pensions and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, are fully taxable. This may affect how much money seniors can budget toward memory care services in Vigo County.
