What to Consider About Memory Care in Mcleod County
Across the state of Minnesota, 94,000 seniors are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, which is of particular significance to regions with high senior populations like McLeod County, where 18.4 percent of its almost 36,000 residents are aged 65 and older.
In response to this, the Minnesota Board on Aging issued a State Plan outlining steps that can be taken to ensure this segment is properly cared for. One of the most important factors is access to treatment at memory care facilities, three of which are available in McLeod County. In the county and the state as a whole, these facilities are referred to as Special Care Units (SCUs).
- With a cost of living below that state average, seniors on a budget may find McLeod County to be an appealing option. The county receives an overall rating of 91, based on the U.S. national average of 100, with the largest percentage of savings seen in the categories of housing, health and transportation.
- While summers are warm, the McLeod County scores just a 35 out of 100, with 100 representing the best, in terms of overall comfort. In the winter, temperatures can drop below 3 degrees, and on average, 46 inches of snowfall is expected each year. Families should consider inquiring about the measures an SCU takes to ensure the comfort and safety of its senior residents when conditions get harsh.
- McLeod County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Hutchinson Health Hospital and Glencoe Regional Health Services, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- On a scale of 100, with 100 considered high crime, McLeod County scores a 30 for violent crime and 29.4 for property crime. While property crime is lower than the U.S. national average of 38.1, the violent crime rate is very close to the nationwide score of 31.1. As safety is often a top priority for families of loved ones with dementia, it's a good idea to review the security policies and procedures of an SCU.
