What to Consider About Memory Care in Wright County

Wright County is a quiet area between Minneapolis and St. Cloud that's home to more than 16,000 people aged 65 or over. Some of these seniors, a small portion of the 94,000 in all of Minnesota, may have Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. The state licenses and regulates Home Care Providers with special care units (SCUs) to take care of this population. The county has three memory care facilities for those seniors.

Wright County 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 Minneapolis.

  • While below freezing temperatures in Wright County are normal during winter with average lows of three degrees, summers are usually comfortable with highs around 82 degrees. Families may want to check that their chosen memory care facility has adequate heating solutions and contingency plans in place for mechanical problems that may occur due to frigid weather. 
  • Wright County gets a passing grade for annual particle pollution and a B for ozone pollution according to the American Lung Association. Air quality can have a big impact on senior health, so families may want to ensure a memory care facility has filtration solutions that keep the indoor air at optimal quality.
  • Violent crime in Wright County is two points below the national average of 31.1, and property crime is 11 points below the national average of 38.1. Families of seniors within local memory care facilities may have more peace of mind knowing that the county is safer than average.
  • Largely due to real estate, Wright County is one of the more expensive areas in the state. The cost of living is eight percent higher than the Minnesota average of 106 and 14 percent higher than the U.S. average of 100. Wright County may not be the ideal location for seniors needing memory care on a limited budget.
