What to Consider About Memory Care in Lakeville
There are more than 68,000 residents living in Lakeville, Minnesota. With more than 8 percent of the city's population aged 65 and older, the need for senior services, such as dementia care, is considerable. Throughout Minnesota, in fact, there are an estimated 94,000 seniors who've been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease or various forms of dementia.
The Lakeville area is home to six memory care facilities that provide residential dementia care to seniors. These facilities, officially known as special care units (SCUs) throughout Minnesota, are often in facilities alongside assisted living facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lakeville
- Minnesota fully taxes all forms of retirement income, including pensions, savings accounts and even Social Security income. Some families might find that income tax cuts too much into their memory care budget.
- The Lakeville area is home to world-class medical facilities including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care, such as Northfield Hospital and Clinics, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Lakeville has low crime rates and is safer than 66 percent of U.S. cities. Residents have only a one in 1,449 chance of becoming the victim of a violent crime and a one in 107 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime. Even with low crime rates, it's a good idea to ensure that memory care facilities take measures to protect residents from crime.
- Lakeville's winters are harsh. The city experiences more than double the snowfall of the average U.S. city and has an average low temperature in January of only 6 degrees.
