What to Consider About Memory Care in Johnson County
Johnson County has over 591,000 people, including a large senior community that accounts for about 14 percent of residents. In this county, nearly 12 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. The county is served by the Heart of America Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.
Johnson County families have nearly two dozen memory care facilities to choose from, including several in Overland Park and Olathe. Kansas does not license or certify dementia care units, but memory care services are offered in assisted living facilities that specialize in serving those with dementia.
- Kansas seniors whose adjusted gross income is less than $75,000 do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, and public pension income is not subject to state income tax. All other types of retirement income are fully taxable, which may impact the memory care budget for services in Johnson County.
- Johnson County has outstanding air quality, which may make the county a great option for seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease. The American Lung Association gave the county an A for both ozone pollution and short-term particle pollution, as well as a passing score for annual particle pollution.
- Compared to the state and national medians, Johnson County's overall cost of living is high, which may be a concern for families and seniors with tight memory care budgets. Living costs are about 25 percent higher than the state median and 15 percent higher than the national median, and healthcare expenses are about 5 percent higher here than in the state and nation as a whole.
- Summers in Johnson County are hot with July highs near 90 degrees, and winters are chilly with January lows around 20 degrees. As they're touring memory care facilities, families may want to ask what measures are taken to prevent residents from wandering outdoors during the chilly winter months.
