What to Consider About Memory Care in Elyria

Seniors aged 65 and older make up 14.4 percent of Elyria's 53,883 population, and some of these seniors are part of the 220,000 people in Ohio with Alzheimer's disease. The city has two memory care facilities to care for these residents — one in Elyria and one in a community nearby.

The Ohio Department of Health licenses and regulates the memory care facilities in Elyria and the rest of the state. They conduct annual inspections to ensure each facility meets state standards.

  • Some seniors might find Elyria a costly place to live. The city's overall cost of living is 1 percent higher than the Ohio average, and health care services average 6 percent higher than the rest of the state. However, Elyria might be a good option for families looking for a moderately priced area because even though the cost of living is slightly higher than state averages, it's still 9 percent lower than the U.S. average.
  • The Elyria area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Elyria, Ohio, is prone to harsh winter weather. Snowfall is common, and the lowest monthly average temperature is 28 degrees Fahrenheit in February. Winter weather may make it difficult for family members to visit loved ones residing in an Elyria memory care facility. However, visitation shouldn't be a problem for the rest of the year. Throughout the spring, fall, and summer the city has fairly moderate weather with the highest monthly average temperature at 73 degrees Fahrenheit in July.
  • In Ohio, Social Security income isn't taxed, which should leave more funds available to cover memory care costs. However, withdrawals from retirement accounts are taxed at a rate of 2.97 percent, and pension payments, both public and private, are taxed at a percentage of that rate.
