What to Consider About Memory Care in Douglas County

Nestled along the Missouri River, Douglas County in eastern Nebraska is home to 517,110 residents, with more than 10 percent of its population being comprised of seniors aged 65 and older. Some of these seniors may be among the 34,000 Nebraska residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. To accommodate this group, there are 17 memory care facilities in Douglas County.

In all of Nebraska including Douglas County, memory care facilities are known as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and are licensed by the Nebraska Division of Public Health, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Licensure and Regulation.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Residents in Douglas County experience harsh winters with lows of 13 degrees and annual snowfalls totalling 30 inches, four inches more than the national average of 26. Seniors who don’t like cold weather might not like living in Douglas County.
  • The cost of living in Douglas County is 96, slightly lower than the U.S. average of 100. Transportation expenses are also lower than the average, but healthcare costs are higher than the average at 125. Seniors wishing to move to a facility in the county might want to take the higher healthcare expenses into consideration. 
  • Nebraska is not tax-friendly toward seniors. While Social Security benefits are only partially taxed, retirement savings account income and pensions are fully taxed. Douglas County seniors on fixed incomes might find that the higher taxes result in less money to allocate toward their memory care budgets.
  • Douglas County has a violent crime rate of 40.6 and a property crime rate of 42.1, both slightly higher than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. While these crime rates are unlikely to affect seniors living in memory care facilities, families might still want to ask staff about safety measures for their own peace of mind.
