What to Consider About Memory Care in Clive

The city of Clive is located in central Iowa in Polk County, where more than 10 percent of seniors who are Medicare beneficiaries have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Some of these seniors may be a part of Clive's own senior community, which makes up almost 14 percent of the city's population of 17,000 people. 

There are 10 memory care facilities in the Clive area. Two of these facilities are located in the city proper, and there are another eight facilities in nearby cities like Des Moines and Urbandale. In Clive, as in the rest of the state, memory care may be provided in an assisted living program that is certified as a dementia care unit or in a residential care facility that has a designated unit or a standalone facility for residents with dementia.

  • Clive is rated safer than 41 percent of all U.S. cities and 22 percent of Iowa's cities. However, when compared only to other cities that are similarly sized, Clive's crime rate, especially its violent crime rate, is noticeably lower. This may make Clive a good option for memory care for safety-minded families.
  • The overall cost of living in Clive is about 10 percent higher than the nationwide average, which may drive up the cost of memory care in this city. However, healthcare expenses are only slightly above the national median, which may make help families and seniors afford the costs associated with chronic conditions like Alzheimer's. 
  •  The air quality in Polk County is good, which may make Clive a good option for seniors with respiratory illnesses. The American Lung Association gave the region an A for ozone pollution and a B for short-term particle pollution.
