What to Consider About Memory Care in Flint

According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, about 240,000 people in Michigan are living with dementia. In Flint, the senior community makes up more than 12 percent of the population of 96,000 people and is the most at risk group to develop Alzheimer's disease. 

To support seniors with Alzheimer's and other cognitive impairments, Flint has one memory care facility, and there are 11 more scattered across Genesee County. Memory care facilities are established to meet the needs of seniors who have Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. These facilities are licensed and monitored by the Department of Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Flint

  • Flint seniors do not pay income tax on their Social Security benefits, but other types of retirement income are subject to state income tax. However, the state provides a sizable deduction to reduce the expense, which may allow for more money in the budget toward memory care. 
  • The American Lung Association gave Genesee County an F for ozone pollution and a B for 24-hour particle pollution. Ozone can cause respiratory and cardiovascular harm, particularly in those over the age of 65. This may be a consideration for families moving their loved one to memory care in Flint.
  • Flint is a very affordable place to live, with overall living costs coming in at nearly 25 percent below the national average. Healthcare costs about 17 percent less here than elsewhere in the country, which may appeal to families whose senior loved one has a chronic condition like dementia. 
  • Flint's crime rates surpass regional, state and national averages. On a 100-point scale on which a higher score indicates more crime, the city's violent crime rate is 96.1 and the property crime rate is 65.2. This is compared to the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. To keep residents safe, memory care facilities have security features like controlled entrances, alarm systems and surveillance cameras.

Paying for Memory Care in Flint

Memory Care costs in Flint start around $4,182 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 Flint 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.
