    What to Consider About Memory Care in Cascade County

    Located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains near the Lewis and Clark National Forest, Cascade County is home to more than 14,000 people age 65 and over. Some of the seniors in the county are living with  Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, and there are two memory care facilities in Great Falls that may be able to make their lives easier.

    The official term for these facilities in Montana is Assisted Living Facility. In order to maintain certain standards for care, they are licensed and regulated by the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.

    • Cascade County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Benefits Health System, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The rate of crime in Cascade County is high relative to the U.S. average and the surrounding counties. Violent crime is 11 points higher than the national average of 31.1. Families worried about this may want to inquire about the security features available at memory care facilities, such as alarms, high-tech locks and cameras.
    • Cascade County has a relatively dry climate with warm summers and cold winters. In January, lows can reach 16 degrees, so families searching for memory care should check that staff are trained to keep residences from going outside when the weather is really cold.
    • Montana's tax policies are friendly towards seniors with low incomes but only moderately friendly to those with middle to high incomes. For individuals who gross less than $25,000, all social security income is deductible. Those with higher incomes can partially deduct social security. There is no sales tax in Montana which makes things more affordable for all seniors needing memory care.
