What to Consider About Memory Care in Canton

Nestled between Detroit and Ann Arbor, the Charter Township of Canton is home to nearly 92,000 residents, 12.7 percent of whom are aged 65 and older. In a state where 180,000 seniors are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, ensuring this demographic has access to specialized care is an issue of great importance. There are two of these memory care facilities in Canton, as well as an additional 11 in neighboring communities.

In Michigan, including the city of Canton, memory care facilities, also known as Alzheimer's special care units (SCUs), are designed to address the specific needs of those with dementia. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Canton

  • Out of a possible 100, with 100 being high crime, Canton scores 31.6 for violent crime and 30.7 for property crime. Though similar to the U.S. national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, these numbers are much lower than the average rates seen across the Detroit-Warren-Dearborn metropolitan area. Families should consider speaking to a facility about the security policies and procedures it has in place to keep residents safe.
  • While it is slightly more temperate than the average climate across Michigan, winters in Canton can be quite harsh. The winter low is around 18 degrees, which is about five degrees higher than the state average, though the area is expected to receive around 44 inches of snow in a season.
  • Canton has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Plymouth (Detroit Medical Center – Plymouth) and Wayne (Beaumont Hospital).
  • On average, Michigan tends to be a more affordable option than many American cities, scoring a 97 compared to the national average of 100. However, the cost of living in Canton is significantly higher, scoring an overall 117.5. Despite its high housing and transportation costs, which are the largest factors in this difference, health and grocery costs are actually quite low, which may help seniors and families when budgeting for memory care services.

Paying for Memory Care in Canton

Memory Care costs in Canton start around $5,859 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.

It’s important to note that memory care rates in Canton and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
