What to Consider About Memory Care in Council Bluffs

Around 64,000 people in Iowa have Alzheimer's disease, a number that's expected to grow to 73,000 by 2025. In Council Bluffs, where over 15 percent of the city's 62,000 residents are 65 or older, memory care facilities are an important resource for people with dementia to live out their lives in a secure, therapeutic environment. The city has two of these facilities with a further five in nearby communities.

In Iowa, memory care can be provided by both assisted living programs (ALPs) and residential care facilities (RCFs). Both have staff with specialized training on duty 24 hours a day and are licensed by the Iowa Department of Inspection and Appeals, Health Facilities Division.

  • Income from retirement funds and pensions is subject to income tax in Iowa, but deductions are available for seniors. People receiving benefits from Social Security will not have it taxed by the state. This may make more money available in the budget for memory care.
  • The cost of living in Council Bluffs is rated at 90.5 on the Sperling Index, compared to the national average of 100. However, seniors and their families should be aware that some expenses are still high compared to other parts of the country. In particular, healthcare is rated at 118, 18 points higher than the U.S. average, which can have a large impact on seniors with health conditions.
  • The Council Bluffs area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Council Bluffs' crime rate is 62 crimes per 1,000 residents, one of the highest crime rates in the state. This is largely due to the high property crime rate of 59.65, which is almost triple the state average of 21.25. The violent crime rate of 2.41 is slightly lower than the Iowa average of 2.93. Families may wish to ask about security measures in their loved one's memory care facility.
