What to Consider About Memory Care in Dodge County

Out of the estimated 34,000 seniors in the state of Nebraska who have Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, a small portion call Dodge County home. People aged 65 and over only make up only 9.4 percent of the population in the county, well below the national average of 15.6 percent. Living arrangements for these seniors are available through two memory care facilities, officially known as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs), located within the city of Fremont.

All facilities that care for seniors, even those with cognitive impairments like dementia, fall under the same licensing laws enforced by the Nebraska Division of Public Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Families needing memory care on limited budgets may find Dodge County appealing due to its low cost of living. Compared to the national average of 100, the county has a cost of living index rating of 87.7. Dodge County is about five percent less expensive than neighboring Washington County.
  • While Dodge County is an affordable place to live, the state of Nebraska does not have tax policies that are friendly for seniors. Social security income that's subject to federal taxes is also subject to state taxes, and all withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed.
  • The climate in Dodge County can get quite harsh during the winter with low temperatures reaching 12 degrees and snowfall of 32 inches per year. In order to keep seniors safe during these conditions, memory care facilities train staff to prevent seniors from going outside. Summer can be quite warm with a January high of 86 degrees.
  • Dodge County has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Omaha
