What to Consider About Memory Care in St. Peters

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services licenses all memory care facilities in St. Peters and the rest of Missouri. This department conducts background checks on prospective caregivers and has dementia-specific training requirements for residential care facilities that provide memory support. It also enforces rules related to housing, care planning and nutrition and medication services.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in St. Peters

  • St. Peters is located in dementia-friendly St. Charles County, where leaders have taken strides toward providing educational and informational resources and early-stage engagement activities for seniors and families affected by dementia. Through the local contact, families may be able to find support groups and research opportunities.
  • Ozone pollution levels are relatively high in St. Peters and may impact seniors’ health and comfort. The American Lung Association gives St. Charles County an F for this type of pollution based on 9 days annually with ozone pollution levels high enough to impact vulnerable individuals and 1 day with levels high enough to affect healthy individuals. Fortunately, memory care facilities often have air purification systems to promote clean indoor air.
  • Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital is located in St. Peters proper and has served the region for over four decades. It has more than 400 physicians on staff and specializations across numerous areas, including cancer care, orthopedics and therapy. It also provides neurodiagnostic testing to identify neurological problems, such as memory loss.
  • St. Peters has cold, snowy winters and hot, muggy summers, making it a favorable option for older adults who enjoy experiencing distinct seasons. Average year-round temperatures range from 24 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit, and extreme temperatures rarely dip below 8 degrees Fahrenheit or rise above 97 degrees Fahrenheit. The rainiest month is May, when residents see an average of 4 inches of rainfall, and January is the snowiest month with an average of 3.5 inches of snow. Memory care facilities schedule outdoor therapeutic activities, such as picnics and gardening, throughout the year to help residents enjoy the weather.
  • Seniors in St. Peters pay state income taxes on all forms of retirement income, but exemptions and deductions are available. For those whose income falls below $85,000, Social Security benefits are exempt. Additionally, there’s a $6,000 exemption for those whose income is at or below $25,000. This may help some seniors afford local memory care costs.

Paying for Memory Care in St. Peters

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.

In St. Peters, memory care residents pay a monthly median rate of $5,125 for dementia services.
