    What to Consider About Memory Care in Apple Valley

    The Alzheimer's Association estimates that 94,000 people in Minnesota are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, which is the primary cause of dementia and generally diagnosed in those aged 65 and over. Apple Valley's own senior community makes up nearly 13 percent of the 52,000-person population, and as many as 10 percent of those seniors may have Alzheimer's.

    To serve those with dementia, Apple Valley has one memory care facility, and there are over 100 more in surrounding cities. These facilities are officially called special care units. Memory care services may be offered in assisted living facilities, which the state refers to as housing with services establishments, and they register annually with the Department of Health

    • Minnesota is one of the few states that tax Social Security income, along with withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and income from public and private pensions. This may leave less money in the budget for memory care expenses in Apple Valley.
    • Compared to the rest of the country, overall living expenses in Apple Valley are about 17 percent higher than the national average. Healthcare expenses, however, are about 14 percent lower here than elsewhere, which may appeal to those managing chronic conditions like dementia. 
    • Apple Valley's property crime rate is roughly on par with the national average, but the violent crime rate is lower than the U.S. median. On a 100-point scale, with a low score indicating low crime, the city's property crime rate is 38.4 and the violent crime rate is 25.7, compared to the respective national averages of  38.1 and 31.1.
    • Apple Valley's air quality is fair, with the county receiving a B for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. This may be beneficial for those with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease.
