What to Consider About Memory Care in Blaine

According to the Alzheimer's Association, the state of Minnesota is home to 94,000 seniors who are currently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. This disease, which is the primary cause of dementia, is generally diagnosed in those who are 65 years and older and Blaine's senior community comprises nearly 12 percent of the 65,000-person population. 

In Blaine, memory care facilities may also be called special care units, or SCUs. Memory care is offered in assisted living facilities, which are officially referred to as housing with services establishments by the state, and they are required to register annually with the Department of Health. Blaine is home to four memory care facilities, and there are another 34 facilities in the surrounding region. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Blaine

  • Minnesota is among the handful of states that taxes Social Security income, as well as all other types of retirement income. This may be a consideration for seniors who are moving to Blaine from outside of the state.
  • While Blaine's combined rate of property crime and violent crime is higher than 89 percent of Minnesota's cities and communities, it is on par with the average crime rate of U.S. cities that have a similar population size. The city's violent crime rate is roughly equal to the national average, but its rate of property crime is notably higher. To prevent seniors from wandering outside of secured areas, memory care communities utilize alarm systems and security cameras.
  • The Blaine area is home to world-class medical facilities such as North Memorial Health Clinic in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The overall cost of living in Blaine is about 14 percent higher than the nationwide median. However, medical care in this city is affordable, with health care expenses coming in nearly 15 percent below the national average. This may help seniors on a budget afford the cost of managing a chronic condition like dementia.

Paying for Memory Care in Blaine
