    What to Consider About Memory Care in Waconia

    Waconia, Minnesota, is a city in Carver County, sitting on the shores of Lake Waconia with a population of over 12,000. An estimated 94,000 seniors in the state of Minnesota suffer from Alzheimer's disease, and with 11.9 percent of its residents aged 65 and older, Waconia has two dedicated memory care facilities to accommodate this population. An additional 18 of these facilities, known in Minnesota as special care units (SCUs), are also available in neighboring communities.

    • Waconia is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Ridgeview Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Housing and transportation costs play a significant role in bringing Waconia's cost of living up to 21.4 percent above the U.S. national average. This may be something for seniors and their families to keep in mind when budgeting for a memory care facility.
    • While summers are warm and sunny with temperatures in the mid-80s, winters in Waconia are harsh, resulting in an overall comfort index rating of 37 out of 100. Temperatures can drop below 5 degrees, and residents can expect around 50 inches of snow. Families may want to consider looking into the measures facilities have in place to keep seniors safe from the cold during winter months.
    • Crime rates in Waconia are similar to average rates seen on a national level. At 34.7, the rate of property crime is lower than the 38.1 national average; however, the rate of violent crime is higher at 32.6 compared to 31.1. While memory care facilities are generally secure, families may still want to find out the policies and procedures to keep residents safe.
