The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Kenner, LA for 2024

 

Alzheimer's disease affects more than 6 million Americans. It also contributes to the death of approximately one-third of all people aged 65 and older, making it a significant cause of mortality in seniors. While Kenner has 64,007 residents, 17.1% of whom are seniors, the city's Alzheimer's mortality rate has only risen by 5.75% from 2016 to 2020, according to CDC data, compared to an increase in all-cause mortality of 33.31% over the same period.

Dementia care plays a critical role in keeping Alzheimer's mortality rates low, as it ensures seniors are monitored by trained caregivers who know how to manage symptoms of memory loss and spot signs of health deterioration. Seniors living in Alzheimer's communities are also less likely to experience injuries during periods of confusion thanks to security features and 24/7 monitoring.

This guide discusses why Kenner may be the right location for loved ones with Alzheimer's. It outlines several benefits and drawbacks of the city while comparing costs with other areas.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Kenner

Memory care communities in Kenner and other cities in Louisiana fall under the regulatory jurisdiction of the state's Health Standards Section, which is part of the Louisiana Department of Health. This agency licenses long-term care communities and ensures they meet various health standards to keep residents safe.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Kenner

 

  • Kenner experiences 222 sunny days per year, slightly more than the national average of 205. While summers can be somewhat uncomfortable due to the region's humid climate, average winter temperatures sit at 45.4 degrees Fahrenheit, which is much higher than the U.S. norm of 21.7 degrees Fahrenheit, benefiting seniors who dislike cold weather.
  • Violent crime rates are relatively low in Kenner, measuring 19.1 on a 100-point scale, whereas the U.S. average is 22.7. Although property crime rates are 13.1‬ points higher than the national norm of 35.4, memory care communities have features such as camera surveillance and keypad entries that protect against burglaries and vandalism.
  • Kenner's overall cost of living is 2.5% lower than average. While this is only a slight difference, it can still help make memory care and its associated costs more affordable for families.
  • Kenner has a high sales tax rate of 9.2%, greatly exceeding the U.S. average of 7.3%. Louisiana's maximum income tax rate is 4.25%, but the state doesn't tax Social Security income. Seniors aged 65+ may also be eligible for a tax deduction of up to $6,000 on other forms of retirement income, giving them more money to offset the higher cost of living in Kenner.
  • Health care is 12.6‬% cheaper in Kenner than the national average, and the city has a nearly 46% higher physician density than the U.S. norm, with 306 doctors for every 100,000 people.
  • Many hospitals fall within a 25-mile radius of Kenner, providing highly accessible medical care for seniors. Ochsner Medical Center, one of the closest choices, has won awards for excellence in patient safety. It's also recognized both by the American Heart Association and The Joint Commission for outstanding cardiac and stroke care.
