What to Consider About Memory Care in Madison County

Madison County is located in the west-central region of Mississippi and has a population of about 105,000 people, about 13 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. In this county, it's projected that over 13 percent of the seniors who receive Medicare benefits have Alzheimer's or dementia.  

In Madison County, as in all of Mississippi, memory care facilities are situated within licensed personal care home-assisted living facilities. These facilities must have separate Alzheimer’s disease/dementia care units and meet special requirements regarding staffing, staff training and facility design standards. Madison County is home to three memory care facilities, including two in Ridgeland and one in the city of Madison. 

  • In Mississippi, seniors do not pay state income tax on any type of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and disbursements from pensions. This may allow for more money in the memory care budget for Madison County.
  • Madison County receives 56 inches of rain annually and virtually no snow, and residents enjoy an average of 215 days of sunshine every year. Over the course of a year, temperatures in this county range between 35 degrees and 92 degrees, versus the national average of 23 degrees and 86 degrees. The region's warmer climate may appeal to families whose senior loved ones enjoy spending time outdoors.

Memory care facilities keep residents and their belongings safe by installing features like alarm systems and security cameras.
  • Madison County is a relatively expensive place to live, which may leave less money in the budget for local memory care fees. The overall cost of living in this county is about 3 percent higher than the national average and 15 percent higher than the state average.
