    What to Consider About Memory Care in Livingston County

    More than 15 percent of Livingston County, Michigan's 189,000 residents are aged 65 or older, and in a state where an estimated 180,000 seniors have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease or another form of dementia, the need for memory care facilities in the area is considerable.

    There are two memory care facilities in the county that meet this need by providing specialized residential care to seniors with dementia. These facilities, officially known as Homes for the Aged, are often located alongside assisted living facilities, as the regulations for both types of care are nearly the same in Michigan. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services oversees and regulates the operation of homes for the aged throughout the state.

    • The Livingston County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as St. Joseph Mercy Livingston Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Even in areas with low crime rates, it's important to ask memory care facilities what measures they've taken to keep their residents safe and to protect them from becoming victims of crime.
