What to Consider About Memory Care in Southaven

The Mississippi State Department of Health, Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification, regulates and licenses memory care communities in Southaven and the rest of the state. This department establishes rules related to caregiving, staffing and housing, and it monitors compliance with state and federal standards through an annual licensing process and regular site visits.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Southaven

 

  • Baptist Memorial Hospital – DeSoto serves memory care residents in Southaven through a range of services, including inpatient, outpatient and emergency care. This 339-bed facility obtained national recognition as a top-performing medical facility and ranked as the first hospital in the region to offer open-heart surgery. Although it doesn’t provide neurology services, many memory care communities have concierge services to coordinate necessary medical care for residents.

 

  • Out of Mississippi’s 82 ranked counties, Southaven’s DeSoto County ranks fifth for general health and in the top percentiles for health-related outcomes and factors. The overall life expectancy surpasses the state norm by over two years at 76.5, and of its Medicare beneficiaries, 55% obtain annual flu shots. Although there's only one medical care practitioner per 3,550 residents compared to the national rate of 1,310, memory care communities generally have on-call physicians who administer routine care and oversight.

 

  • Southaven offers affordability with an overall cost of living that runs 12% lower than the national norm. Specifically, health care costs come 25% lower than related fees in a typical U.S. city, and housing prices run 34% lower than the national norm, promoting competitive memory care pricing. Additionally, the state funds the Assisted Living Waiver, which helps qualified individuals pay for local memory care costs.

 

  • Mississippi doesn’t impose state income taxes on any form of retirement income, helping many seniors afford living and long-term care expenses in Southaven. While the state’s sales tax rate runs high at 7%, plus county and local sales tax, it exempts prescription medications.

 

  • Approximately 35 crimes per 1,000 residents occur annually in Southaven, which exceeds norms in the state and nation as a whole, as well as typical crime rates in cities of its size. Fortunately, while property crime occurs at a much higher rate here than in most U.S. cities, the violent crime rate falls notably lower than state and national norms, especially in neighborhoods such as Dickens Place and Gardens of Belle Pointe. Memory care facilities support the safety of vulnerable residents through measures such as security gates and monitored surveillance cameras.

Paying for Memory Care in Southaven

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates. No national database currently tracks memory care costs in the United States, so we've estimated the monthly memory care costs listed below by adding 25% to the rates listed in Genworth's 2021 Cost of Care Survey.

In Southaven, the baseline rate for memory care comes to $5,250 per month.
