What to Consider About Memory Care in Wayne County

There are an estimated 180,000 seniors living with Alzheimer's Disease across Michigan and in places such as Wayne County, where more than 15 percent of the area's 1.5 million residents are seniors age 65 or older, the need for dementia care is substantial. 

There are 15 memory care facilities located in Wayne County to meet this need and provide residential care to seniors with dementia. These facilities are officially known as homes for the aged in Michigan and are subject to a similar set of rules and regulations as assisted living facilities. As such, both levels of care are often provided in the same facility. All homes for the aged in Michigan are overseen by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services

  • Winters in Wayne County are reasonably cold, with an annual snowfall of 36 inches and average low temperatures of only 19 degrees in January. Extreme weather conditions can pose a threat to seniors with a tendency to wander, so it's important to make sure that memory care facilities have taken measures to prevent residents from going outdoors unsupervised.
  • Wayne County's overall cost of living is about 7 percent below the national average, but the cost of housing in the area is even more significant, at 63 percent below the average U.S. city. These low costs are likely to be reflected in the cost of room and board in memory care facilities. 
  • Although the American Lung Association has assigned a passing grade to the air quality in Wayne County, there are moderate particle and ozone pollution levels in the area. Seniors, particularly those with respiratory illnesses, may notice some discomfort on days when air quality is poor. 
  • The Wayne County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Beaumont Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
