    What to Consider About Memory Care in Eaton County

    Nearly 20 percent of Eaton County, Michigan's 107,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and up and many of these seniors require a special level of care and assistance due to dementia-related disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease or Huntington's Disease. An estimated 180,000 seniors across Michigan are living with Alzheimer's Disease and in Eaton County, there are five memory care facilities that provide the level of care those with advanced dementia and other Alzheimer's Disease symptoms require.

    In Michigan, memory care facilities are known officially as Homes for the Aged. These Homes for the Aged often provide both memory care and assisted living services, as provisions for both levels of care are nearly the same. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for overseeing and regulating all memory care and assisted living throughout the state.
