    Alzheimer's disease is a growing concern in the state of Minnesota, with approximately 94,000 seniors across the state currently living with this diagnosis. Just southwest of the Twin Cities, Carver County is home to over 102,000 residents, 11.5 percent of whom are aged 65 and older, and may require specialized dementia treatment. This can be accessed at memory care facilities, known as Special Care Units (SCUs), five of which are available throughout the county.

    • At 126.9, the cost of living in Carver County is much higher than both the U.S. national average of 100 and Minnesota state average of 106. While health costs remain low, residents can expect to spend more on housing, transportation and miscellaneous expenditures, which may be an important consideration for seniors on a tight budget.
    • A low rate of crime can offer peace of mind for seniors and their families. Out of a possible 100, with 100 representing high crime, Carver County is scores 19.8 in terms of violent crime and 20.3 for property-related crime. These ratings are lower than national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, respectively, though it's still a good idea to review the security policies and procedures of an SCU.
    • Carver County has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the only major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Waconia at the Ridgeview Medical Center.
    • Seniors and other residents of Carver County are subject to harsh winters, with temperatures dropping as low as 3 degrees and an average 48 inches of snow expected to fall throughout the season. In fact, the county's overall comfort index score is only rated 37 out of 100, with 100 being the best.
