What to Consider About Memory Care in Grand Island

The city of Grand Island, Nebraska, is home to over 51,000 people, nearly 14 percent of whom are age 65 or over. According to the Alzheimer's Association, seniors are at greater risk than younger adults to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, a degenerative brain disease which is the most common cause of dementia. In Nebraska, where the senior community makes up over 15 percent of the population, there are currently 34,000 people living with Alzheimer's disease.

To care for Grand Island seniors with dementia, the city has two memory care facilities. In Grand Island, as in the rest of the state, memory care facilities may be independent, freestanding facilities that exclusively provide care for those with dementia. Memory care may also be offered in assisted living facilities that abide by the regulations outlined in the Alzheimer's Special Care Disclosure Act. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Grand Island

  • The Grand Island area is home to world-class medical facilities, such as CHI Health St. Francis, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Nebraska is among the few states that do not exempt Social Security income from taxation. Additionally, there are no exemptions or deductions for any other type of retirement income. This is an important consideration for seniors, particularly those moving to Grand Island from another state with more retirement-friendly tax laws. 
  • Healthcare costs in Grand Island are about 28 percent higher than the national median, which may make it difficult for seniors to afford the cost of managing a chronic condition like dementia. Housing costs are about 20 percent lower than the national average, however, which may translate into more affordable room and board in a memory care facility.
  • Grand Island is prone to extreme temperatures, with hot summers and freezing winters. July highs are near 90 degrees and January lows are in the teens. This may be a consideration for seniors who prefer a more comfortable year-round climate.
