    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.

    • The Eaton County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Michigan doesn't tax social security income and provides generous deductions on all other forms of retirement income, which can be beneficial to families who have limited funds for senior care. 
    • Crime rates in Eaton County are higher than the state average. On a scale of one to 100, where one represents low crime and 100 represents high crime, Eaton County's violent crime rate is 35.8 and its property crime rate is 34.8. By comparison, the state averages only 33.1 for violent crime and 25.1 for property crime. When touring memory care facilities, its a good idea to inquire about systems that are in place to keep residents safe.
    • The cost of living in Eaton County is below the countrywide average by nearly 7 percent. Seniors and their families will find they're able to save the most money on healthcare and housing costs, which are both nearly 20 percent below the national average.
