What to Consider About Memory Care in Bellevue
The city of Bellevue is located in eastern Nebraska and is home to over 53,000 people, more than 13 percent of whom are seniors. According to statistics published by the Alzheimer's Association, one in 10 of those seniors have or will have Alzheimer's disease, a disease that has been diagnosed in 34,000 Nebraskans. The city is served by the Alzheimer's Association Nebraska Chapter, which provides support and informational resources for local seniors and families.
There are three memory care facilities in Bellevue, with two in the city proper and one more in nearby Papillion. Memory care facilities may be situated in their own building or they may be located within an assisted living facility that abides by the regulations outlined in the Alzheimer's Special Care Disclosure Act.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Bellevue
- The air quality in Bellevue is moderate, with Sarpy County receiving a C for short-term particle pollution from the American Lung Association. This may be a consideration for families whose senior loved one has a condition like asthma or COPD.
- Unlike most other states, Nebraska does not exempt Social Security benefits from state income tax, and it does not provide any exemptions or deductions for other types of retirement income. This may leave less money in the budget for memory care expenses in Bellevue.
- Bellevue's summers are hot and humid with highs in the upper-80s, and the city has chilly winters with lows in the teens. Families may want to ensure that the memory care facility they choose for their senior loved one keeps residents safe and comfortable during extreme seasonal weather.
- Although Bellevue's overall living costs are slightly below the U.S. average, healthcare costs about 25 percent more in this city than in the nation as a whole. This may negatively impact how much it costs to manage a chronic condition like dementia and leave less money in the budget for memory care expenses in this city.
Paying for Memory Care in Bellevue
