What to Consider About Memory Care in Ingham County

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, almost 14 percent of Medicare beneficiaries age 65 and over have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Although dementia can be diagnosed in adults of any age, it is most commonly diagnosed in seniors. In Ingham County, this demographic makes up 13 percent of the 290,000-person population

While some memory care facilities in Ingham County have their own independent building that only serves those with dementia, in most cases, memory care services are provided in assisted living facilities that specialize in multiple levels of care. These facilities are licensed by the Department of Human Services, and Ingham County is home to nine memory care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

 

  • In Ingham County, seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, even those that are taxed at the federal level. Other types of retirement income are fully taxable, with a sizeable deduction available for taxpayers aged 65 and over. This may leave more money toward memory care expenses. 
  • Ingham County's air quality is decent, with the county receiving a C for ozone pollution, and A for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. The region's air quality may benefit seniors with respiratory conditions. 
  • Ingham County receives about 175 sunny days annually and some type of precipitation 70 days out of the year. July highs are around 80 degrees, and January lows are in the teens. The region receives about 40 inches of snow annually, which is about 14 inches higher than the national average and may impede seasonal travel for families visiting loved ones in local memory care facilities. 
  • Ingham County's overall cost of living is roughly 10 percent below state and national averages, which may result in lower memory care costs. Healthcare expenses in this county are about 15 percent below the national median, which may make it more affordable to manage a chronic condition like dementia.
