What to Consider About Memory Care in Burnsville

The Minnesota Department of Health, Health Regulation Division, oversees memory care facilities in Burnsville and the rest of the state. This department enforces a consistent standard of care through an initial and annual licensing process, conducting regular site inspections and maintaining ongoing communication with facility directors. It also publishes details on the licensing rules all facilities must follow.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Burnsville

  • Fairview Ridges Hospital, situated in Burnsville proper, is a 150-bed hospital that ranks among the top 6% in the nation for quality of care. It offers on-site access to doctors certified in specialties, such as cardiac rehabilitation, surgery and rehabilitative therapies, and it provides recommendations and referrals for specialists who administer dementia services.
  • Dakota County, where Burnsville is located, ranks 8th for health among the state’s 87 surveyed counties, indicating a wide range of health factors and outcomes favorable to seniors. The county sits in the 75-100th percentile for health outcomes, such as its above-average life expectancy of 81.8 years and the low reported number of poor physical health days, which average 2.5 over a 30-day period compared to 3 nationally.
  • The cost of living in Burnsville comes about 13.2% above the national norm, correlating with comparatively high memory care costs. This is mainly due to high healthcare costs, which come in 11% above the U.S. average, although residents spend approximately 11% less on housing and 7% less on utilities here than in a typical U.S. city. Fortunately, the state funds the Elderly Waiver, which provides home and community-based services, including memory care, for qualifying seniors. 
  • Burnsville’s crime rate is relatively high with approximately 27 incidents per 1,000 residents. The city rates as safer than just 13% of U.S. communities and 8% of Minnesota communities, and its crime rate is high compared to similarly sized cities nationwide. However, crime rates aren’t consistent throughout the entire city, with neighborhoods such as Southwind and Burnsville South reporting some of the lowest rates in the nation and providing safe options for those seeking memory care.
  • Minnesota taxes Social Security income along with other forms of retirement income at some of the highest rates in the country, varying from 5.35% to 9.85% depending on income bracket. However, the state has deductions for seniors whose income is below a certain level, letting older taxpayers subtract money from the taxable portions of their Social Security benefits and public pension income. This helps many seniors afford memory care in Burnsville.
