    What to Consider About Memory Care in Rochester

    The third-largest city in Minnesota, Rochester is a vibrant metropolitan area that's home to people of all ages, including seniors in need of memory care.  Across the state 94,000 seniors have such a need, and out of the 115,733 Minnesotans living in Rochester, 14 percent are seniors. Rochester seeks to support its growing population of elders in need of memory care with 39 assisted living facilities, known throughout the state as Special Care Units. These facilities require their qualified staff to annually attend continuing education on dementia care.

    • Seniors and their families enjoy pleasant summers in Rochester, with average highs of 81 degrees in July and 180 days of sunshine. The winters can get cold, with temperatures dropping down to an average of 6 degrees in January and heavy snowfall of 49 inches, which is 23 inches more than the national average.
    • The country’s average cost of living is 100, while the state of Minnesota is rated at 106, 6 percent higher. Rochester, on the other hand, is 98.2, making it a little more affordable than average for both the state and across the United States.
    • Though the cost of living in Rochester is slightly below average, Minnesota’s high tax rate could be a serious drawback for those on a tight budget. With a high rate of 5.35 percent for the lowest income bracket, Minnesota is ranked as the least tax-friendly state in the country by Kiplinger. Families looking for a memory care facility here should consider how this may affect their budget.
    • Seniors and their loved ones can feel quite secure in Rochester due to the low crime rate. Property crime is rated at 34.3 out of 100 (one being the safest), which is lower than the national average of 38.1. Violent crime is considerably lower, rated at 14.2 compared to the U.S. average of 31.1.
