    What to Consider About Memory Care in Billings

    Billings, Montana, is home to just over 100,000 people, and 16.2 percent them are over the age of 65. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 20,000 people in Montana live with Alzheimer’s disease, and 10 percent of them residing in Billings. These seniors are accommodated by five memory care facilities within city limits. In Montana, memory care may exist within assisted living facilities as separate units or may be standalone facilities specializing in Alzheimer’s and dementia. 

    Rated the number one hospital in Montana, the Billings Clinic partners with other health-care providers to engage communities in discussions on how to improve dementia outcomes in health care. Seniors residing in Billings may also be happy to know that an organization called Dementia-Friendly Billings was recently formed to create a sympathetic city for people living with dementia through outreach and education. 

    • Seniors on a budget should note that the cost of living in Billings is 2.9 percent higher than the U.S. average. Housing is the biggest factor in this percentage, with transportation and health care costs coming in below national medians and groceries just above the U.S. average. 
    • The weather in Billings can fluctuate widely depending on the season. Winters get quite cold with lows in January dipping to 18 degrees. Snowfall is above average at 49 inches per year. This may cause issues for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. Summers are warm with highs in July of 88 degrees, and rainfall is below average at 14 inches annually. 
    • Seniors can feel comfortable living in Billings as the city is safer than 5 percent of other U.S. cities. Property crime is somewhat high here with the city scoring a 58.4 out of 100 with 100 representing high crime, but violent crime is lower than the national average with a score of 26.3 out of 100. 
    • Montana seniors over a certain income level may have to pay some tax on their social security benefits, and the state fully taxes most other forms of retirement income. This may make it more difficult to set aside funds for memory care.
