    What to Consider About Memory Care in Jackson County

    The sprawling community of Jackson County has almost 700,000 residents, nearly 15 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. The rate of Alzheimer's disease and dementia is slightly higher here than in the nation as a whole. According to data gathered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, 12.4 of seniors who rely on Medicare benefits are living with this diagnosis, versus the national average of 11.3 percent.  

    In Jackson County as in all of Missouri, memory care services may be provided in their own independent building or within residential care facilities. There are eight memory care facilities in this county, including three in Lees Summit and two in Independence.

    • In Jackson County and the rest of Missouri, all retirement income is subject to state income tax, including Social Security benefits. However, there are generous deductions for Social Security benefits and public pensions, which may leave more money in the memory care budget.
    • The air quality in Jackson County is fair, with the American Lung Association giving this county a C for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution. This may impact the quality of life for memory care residents who have chronic conditions like COPD or cardiovascular disease.  
    • The cost of living in Jackson County is on par with the statewide average and about 7 percent lower than the national average, but healthcare expenses are about 10 percent higher here than they are in the state and nation as a whole. This may be a consideration for families and seniors who are seeking affordable memory care options. 
    • July highs in Jackson County are around 90 degrees, and January lows are in the low-20s. In spite of its cold temperatures, the region receives just 8 inches of annual snowfall, which may make seasonal travel relatively easy for those visiting loved ones in memory care here.
