    What to Consider About Memory Care in Ann Arbor

    Ann Arbor, Michigan, is home to at least a dozen different memory care facilities designed to help meet the needs of the state's growing number of seniors with dementia. Statewide, about 10.8 percent of Michiganders over the age of 65 have Alzheimer's disease, and the number of cases is only projected to increase through the year 2025. 

    Seniors who choose a memory care facility in Ann Arbor will also be close to state-of-the-art medical facilities, including those offered at Michigan Medicine. In Ann Arbor and throughout Michigan, the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs may license memory care facilities as Adult Foster Care (AFC) facilities or Homes for the Aged (HFA).

    • Tax policies in Ann Arbor and throughout Michigan are generally favorable toward seniors. Michigan does not tax Social Security income. Pensions, 401(k) plan withdrawals and other kinds of retirement income are taxable but may be deductible. 

    • Compared to other large cities in Michigan, Ann Arbor has a higher overall cost of living. For example, living costs in Detroit and Grand Rapids are 5.6 and 7.3 percent lower than the national average, respectively. By contrast, Ann Arbor's cost of living is 27.1 percent above the U.S. median. However, housing prices account for most of the difference. Seniors can expect some goods and services, including groceries and transportation, to be cheaper in Ann Arbor than elsewhere in Michigan.

    • Southeast Michigan's cold, snowy winters may be especially tough on older adults. Each year, about 53 inches of snow blanket Ann Arbor and temperatures dip to an average low of 16 degrees Fahrenheit, families with loved ones in memory care facilities should make sure the staff takes extra precautions to keep residents warm and comfortable in cold weather.

    • According to the American Lung Association, which uses several measures to determine a city's air quality, Ann Arbor, along with Detroit and Warren, ranked as the 14th most polluted city in the U.S. for year-round particle pollution. Ann Arbor's poor air quality may pose health risks, especially for older residents with respiratory problems.
