    What to Consider About Memory Care in Midland County

    Midland County, Michigan is home to a little more than 83,000 residents and more than 17 percent of its population is aged 65 or older. Across Michigan, an estimated 180,000 seniors are living with Alzheimer's Disease or another form of dementia; therefore, the need for dementia care in places like Midland County, where such a large percentage of the population are seniors, is considerable. 

    Seniors with dementia and their family members can choose from three memory care facilities that are located in Midland County. Both memory care and assisted living facilities fall under the same rules and regulations in Michigan and are officially known as homes for the aged. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for overseeing all homes for the aged.

    • Midland County has a lower cost of living than most other counties in the area. The overall cost of living in the area is more than 10 percent below the national average, and the cost of housing is more than 30 percent lower. These low costs across the county are typically reflected in the cost of memory care.
    • The Midland County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as MidMichigan Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Midland County has cold and snowy winters. The average low temperature in January is only 15 degrees and the area has nearly double the annual snowfall of the average U.S. city. Its important to ask memory care facilities what security measures they've taken to prevent residents from wandering outside, especially during the winter.
    • Crime rates in Midland County are much lower than both state and national averages. On a scale of one to 100, where one represents low crime and 100 represents high crime, Midland County's property crime rate is only 25.0 and its violent crime rate is only 27.9. By comparison, the average U.S. city has a property crime rate of 38.1 and a violent crime rate of 31.1. Even with low crime rates, it's important to make sure memory care facilities have systems in place to keep residents safe.
