    What to Consider About Memory Care in Urbandale

    The city of Urbandale is home to nearly 44,000 people and has a senior community that makes up close to 14 percent of the population. The Alzheimer's Association reports that Alzheimer's disease is diagnosed primarily in older adults over the age of 65 and is the leading cause of dementia. About 64,000 people in Iowa are currently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and as the population continues to age, that number is expected to increase by over 14 percent.

    To serve local seniors with dementia, Urbandale has two memory care facilities, and there are a dozen more nearby. In most cases, memory care services are offered in assisted living programs that meet additional requirements to be certified as special care units. They are licensed through the Department of Inspections and Appeals, Health Facilities Division.

    • Social Security benefits are not taxed in Iowa, so Urbandale seniors who rely entirely on this form of retirement income do not pay income tax at all. Other types of retirement income are taxed, but those over the age of 55 are eligible for a deduction.
    • Compared to the rest of Iowa, Urbandale's crime rate is higher than that of 81 percent of the state's cities and towns of all sizes, though it's considerably lower than most cities of the same size nationwide. Residents have a one in 164 chance of being the victim of a violent crime and a one in 61 chance of being the victim of a property crime. To keep residents safe, memory care facilities have alarm systems, security cameras and controlled exits.
    • Urbandale has warm, humid summers, with July highs in the 80s and humid conditions about 80 percent of the time. Winters are cold and snowy, with January lows in the teens. The region receives about 35 inches of annual snowfall, compared to the national average of 26 inches, which may be a consideration for families who travel to Urbandale throughout the year to visit their loved one in memory care.
    • The Urbandale area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Des Moines.
