    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kalamazoo

    Situated halfway between Detroit and Chicago, Kalamazoo is a Michigan city with around 75,000 residents. About 10 percent of them are past their 65th birthdays, which makes them part of the age group most likely to develop dementia. The Alzheimer's Association projects that across the state of Michigan,180,000 seniors had Alzheimer's disease in 2018 and that number is projected to grow by 22 percent by the year 2025. For families of seniors with dementia who need round the clock care, Kalamazoo has at least four memory care facilities available to help.

    The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs may license memory care facilities in Kalamazoo as Homes for the Aged (HFAs) or Adult Foster Care (AFC). Unlike some states, Michigan does not have an additional set of rules that are specific to facilities serving seniors with dementia.

    • Kalamazoo's overall cost of living is 16.9 cheaper than the national average, savings which may help families on a budget to better afford memory care services for their senior loved ones with dementia.
    • In its 2018 study on air quality, the American Lung Association gave Kalamazoo County a flunking grade for ozone. At many memory care facilities, seniors have access to secure areas outside, which may put them in contact with polluted air. Unhealthy levels of ozone can irritate seniors' lungs and exacerbate pre-existing respiratory conditions.
    • The Kalamazoo area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Bronson Neuroscience Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The odds of becoming the victim of a crime in Kalamazoo are about one out of 18, placing it among the 100 most dangerous cities in the country. Families may want to ask what security measures prospective memory care facilities use to minimize crime on-site and keep residents safe.
