    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kentwood

    According to Rethinking Dementia: Accelerating Change, a local community collaborative that provides informational resources to those who have been affected by dementia, 18,000 seniors in western Michigan are living with dementia. In Kentwood, the senior community makes up more than 12 percent of the 51,000-person population.

    To accommodate those with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Michigan has memory care facilities, which may either be independent or housed within assisted living facilities. There are 14 memory care facilities in the Kentwood region, with two in Kentwood and a dozen more in nearby cities like Grand Rapids and Wyoming. These facilities are licensed and monitored by the Department of Human Services.

    • Kentwood's cost of living is on par with the state average and a little below the U.S. average, and healthcare expenses are about 17 percent less here than elsewhere in the country. This may appeal to seniors who live on a fixed income. 
    • Michigan does not tax Social Security benefits, meaning that seniors who rely solely on this retirement income do not pay income tax. Other types of retirement income are taxed, including withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and pension income, but the state offers a large deduction to minimize the expense. 
    • The Kentwood area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Grand Rapids.
    • The American Lung Association gave Kent County an F for ozone pollution, a B for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution. Families who are helping their loved one transition to memory care in Kentwood may wish to speak to their medical practitioner to determine how the city's air quality may affect their health.
