What to Consider About Memory Care in Mooresville

In Mooresville, as well as in the rest of North Carolina, memory care facilities may be located in adult care homes or multi unit assisted housing with services facilities. The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation licenses both types of facilities and imposes rules for resident-to-caregiver ratios, staff training and building security.  

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Mooresville

  • North Carolina has a flat state income tax rate of 4.99%, and unlike most states, it doesn’t provide exemptions or deductions on retirement income from savings accounts and pensions. However, it doesn’t impose state income taxes on Social Security benefits, which may help some seniors afford memory care in the Mooresville region.
  • Summers in Mooresville are warm and humid, with daytime highs ranging from 80 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit and muggy conditions 20% of the time. Winters are mild, however, with daytime temperatures falling between 51 and 58 degrees Fahrenheit, and nighttime lows seldom dipping below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the city only gets about 5 inches of annual snowfall, most of which comes in January. This may make travel easy for those visiting loved ones in local memory care facilities.
  • The American Lung Association reports that the air quality in the Charlotte metropolitan area, where Mooresville is located, is subpar. Out of 227 metropolitan areas nationwide, it rates as the 41st worst for ozone pollution, and it’s the 63rd worst out of 200 metropolitan areas for annual particle pollution. Fortunately, many memory care facilities have air purification systems to support the health of seniors sensitive to environmental irritants.
  • The Iredell County Area Transportation System provides public transportation services in Mooresville and the surrounding region, including fixed routes and a demand-response service. This can help those who don’t drive visit loved ones in local memory care facilities, as well as provide an alternative to facility-based transportation services.
  • Lake Norman Regional Medical Center is a 123-bed acute care hospital in Mooresville proper. It offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient services, including 24-hour emergency care, outpatient surgery and orthopedics. It also offers the latest technology in neurological care and treats seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

 

Paying for Memory Care in Mooresville

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

In Mooresville, residential memory care costs approximately $5,500 per month.
