    What to Consider About Memory Care in Warren County

    The south-central Iowa county of Warren has about 50,000 residents, almost 16 percent of whom are aged 65 and older. It's projected that a little over 8 percent of seniors who receive Medicare benefits in this county have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. The Iowa Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association serves these seniors and their families by providing support and informational resources.

    Those who are seeking memory care services for a loved one in Warren County may choose from three facilities, including two in Indianola and one in Norwalk. In Iowa, memory care services are most often provided in assisted living programs. These facilities are certified as dementia care units by the Department of Inspections and Appeals, Health Facilities Division

    • While Warren County's overall cost of living is nearly 10 percent higher than the state median, it's roughly on par with the national average. Healthcare expenses are about 13 percent higher than the national average and 5 percent lower than the state average. This may be a consideration for seniors and families seeking cost-effective memory care services. 
    • Warren County is a relatively safe community with a crime rate that is below the national average, which may appeal to families seeking local memory care services for a loved one. On a 100-point scale with a higher value indicating more crime, property crime in this county is rated 25.1 and violent crime is rated 25.8, versus the national rates of 38.1 and 31.1, respectively. 
    • Year-round temperatures in Warren County range between 12 degrees and 85 degrees, and the county receives 36 inches of rain and 29 inches of snow annually. As they're touring memory care facilities, families may want to ask what measures are taken to prevent residents from wandering when outside temperatures are low.
    • In Iowa, all Social Security income is exempt from state income taxes, and the state provides a deduction on other types of retirement income. This may leave families with more money for memory care.
