What to Consider About Memory Care in Washington County

The sprawling community of Washington County, Minnesota, has over 256,000 residents, roughly 14 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. It's projected that almost 11 percent of the seniors who rely on Medicare benefits here are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia.  Families seeking out memory care in the Washington County region have over 30 options to choose from.

In Washington County and the rest of Minnesota, memory care facilities may also be referred to as special care units. Dementia services are generally offered in assisted living facilities, which the state officially refers to as housing with services establishments. These facilities must register annually with the Department of Health

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • The American Lung Association gives Washington County an A for ozone pollution, a C for 24-hour particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution. With its relatively clean air, this county may be a good option for seniors who have conditions like heart disease or COPD.
  • In Washington County and the rest of Minnesota, all forms of retirement income are subject to state income tax, including Social Security income. This may leave less money in the budget for local memory care expenses.  
  • Washington County is among the pricier counties for memory care. Overall living expenses in this county are about 22 percent higher than the national median and roughly 15 percent higher than the state median. Families and seniors may save money on healthcare expenses, however, with the cost of hospital stays and doctor's office visits coming in on par with the state average and about 15 percent lower than the national average. 
  • Summers in Washington County are mild and comfortable, with July highs of around 83 degrees. As is typical of Minnesota, winters tend to be harsh, with January lows around 6 degrees. The county gets about 50 inches of snow annually, which is nearly double the national average. This may make local travel challenging for families visiting loved ones in memory care.
