What to Consider About Memory Care in Woodbury
Out of Woodbury’s population of 69,756, 10.6 percent are 65 or older and some are in need of memory care for Alzheimer's disease or other kinds of dementia. The number of seniors in the state of Minnesota who have a memory-related disorder is up to 94,000, and that number is estimated to grow.

These specialized facilities and their services are under the jurisdiction of the Minnesota Department of Health. In Woodbury, and throughout the state, staff must continue their education and receive annual training.
- The city of Woodbury is considered a fairly safe place to live. Violent crimes such as aggravated assault occur at a rate of 21.6 out of 100 (one is best), which is substantially lower than the national average. Security isn't too much of a concern either, as property crime with a rating of 32.8, is lower than the U.S. average of 38.1.
- Families looking for memory care in Woodbury, and throughout Minnesota, may have a hard time affording the state’s high tax rate. Ranked the least tax-friendly in the United States, Minnesota’s lowest income rate, 5.35 percent, is still on the high end. This could make it difficult for low-income folks to afford basic necessities.
- While the expense of living in Minnesota is only 6 percent higher than average, Woodbury is nearly 28 percent more costly. This, in addition to high taxes, means that seniors with a limited income may find it difficult to live here.
- Woodbury has few 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 in St. Paul.
