    What to Consider About Memory Care in Sparks

    Sparks is located in Washoe County, Nevada, just outside the city of Reno. Nearly 15 percent of the city's 100,000 residents are 65 years of age or older, and many have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, Huntington's Disease or other forms of dementia, which affects an estimated 43,000 seniors in Nevada. 

    There are five memory care facilities throughout Sparks and Reno, officially referred to in Nevada as Residential Homes for Groups. These homes must operate under the same regulations as those providing assisted living services to seniors; however, they must be endorsed by the Nevada State Health Division - Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance to provide dementia care. Facilities providing memory care must also adhere to strict security regulations including maintaining fully secure premises with alarmed doors.

    • The Sparks area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as the Senior Bridges Behavioral Health Program at Northern Nevada Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Washoe County, including Sparks, has high levels of ozone pollution according to the American Lung Association. Families of seniors who've been diagnosed with respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses or certain cancers may want to consider the effect that air quality may have on their loved one's health condition if supervised outdoor activities are available.
    • The overall cost of living in Sparks is nearly 24 percent higher than the cost of living in the average U.S. city. Housing costs are the biggest factor, which are 76 percent above the national average. This is likely to have an effect on the cost of memory care, particularly when it comes to room and board.
    • There's no state income tax in Nevada, meaning that retirement income including social security benefits and pension are tax-free. Families with a tight budget can use the savings towards the cost of memory care.
