What to Consider About Memory Care in Ottawa County

Nearly 15 percent of Ottawa County's 286,000 residents are age 65 or older and many of the area's seniors require specialized residential care for dementia related disorders, which affect an estimated 180,000 seniors in Michigan. Seniors who require such care, along with their families, can choose from one of the area's six memory care facilities. These facilities, known officially as homes for the aged, are often housed alongside assisted living facilities, as both levels of care are subject to a similar set of rules and regulations. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for overseeing the operation of all homes for the age in the state. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • The Ottawa County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as North Ottawa Community Health System and Holland Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
  • Ottawa County has high levels of ozone pollution according to the American Lung Association. Consistently breathing poor-quality air can lead to adverse health effects, especially for seniors and individuals with a respiratory illness. 
  • Crime rates in Ottawa County are lower than both state and countrywide averages, which means that family members can rest assured knowing that their loved one is relatively safe. On a scale of one to 100, where one represents low crime and 100 represents high crime, Ottawa County's property crime rate is only 27.6 and its violent crime rate is only 27.5. By comparison, the national average property crime rate is 38.1 and the national average violent crime rate is 31.1.
  • While the overall cost of living in Ottawa County is on par with the national average, healthcare in the area is 11 percent less expensive than in the average U.S. city. As a result, seniors and their families can expect to save on the cost of services provided in memory care facilities.
