What to Consider About Memory Care in White Bear Lake
Known for its beautiful scenery and rich cultural history, the city of White Bear Lake, Minnesota is home to almost 26,000 residents. Of this population, 18.9 percent are aged 65 and older and may be living with some form of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, a diagnosis affecting 94,000 seniors across the state.
To serve this segment of the population, specialized treatment is available at memory care facilities, known in Minnesota as Special Care Units (SCUs). Two of these SCUs are available in White Bear Lake, and an additional 48 in surrounding communities.
- Like many cities across Minnesota, White Bear Lake experiences very cold winters. On average, the area receives 52 inches of snowfall in a season and temperatures can fall below 7 degrees. Families may want to check that an SCU has proper measures in place to prevent its residents from being exposed to harsh weather conditions.
- Based on the U.S. average of 100, the cost of living in White Bear Lake is rated 113.5. While housing and transportation costs are high, residents can expect to save on grocery and health expenses, which could allow for extra money to be put toward the cost of memory care services.
- Though most SCUs have security systems in place, a low rate of crime can offer added peace of mind for families of seniors with dementia. In terms of violent crime, White Bear Lake scores a 12.1 out of 100, with 100 representing high crime. This is lower than both the general metropolitan area's rate of 25 and the national average of 31.1. However, property crime rates are quite high, so it's a good idea to review the safety policies and procedures of a facility.
- White Bear Lake has no available facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located at St. John's Hospital in Maplewood.
