What to Consider About Memory Care in Saginaw
Saginaw is a small city located in central Michigan that's home to 48,984 people. Seniors age 65 and older make up 12.3 percent of the city's population, and some of these seniors are included in the state's 180,000 people of people living with Alzheimer's disease. To serve this senior demographic, Saginaw has seven memory care facilities — five within the Saginaw city limits and two in nearby communities. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services licenses and regulates the state's homes for the aged, including those with memory care units in Saginaw.
- Saginaw has mild summers and cold winters, which might make it difficult for seniors to spend a lot of time outdoors. The highest monthly average temperature in July is 72 degrees Fahrenheit and the lowest monthly average temperature in January is 24 degrees Fahrenheit.
- The cost of living in Saginaw is 9 percent lower than the state average and 21 percent lower than the national average, which makes the area a good option for seniors on low or fixed incomes. Seniors should expect the cost of groceries and health care services to be on par with that in the rest of the state, but the average costs are still 9 percent and 6 percent lower than the national average, respectfully.
- Seniors residing in a Saginaw area memory care facility and their loved ones might be concerned about personal safety — with good reason. Saginaw's overall crime rate is 53 percent higher than Michigan's average and 26 percent higher than the national average. Fortunately, memory care units have added security to prevent residents from roaming, and that added layer of security also keeps out unwanted guests.
- The New Port Richey area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Covenant Health Care, Ascension St. Mary's, and Select Specialty Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
