    What to Consider About Memory Care in Fairfield County

    Of the nearly 155,000 people residing in Fairfield County, Ohio, 15.5 percent are seniors aged 65 years or older, which is the most at-risk demographic for diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia. To help serve these seniors, Fairfield County offers two memory care facilities, both of which are in the county seat of Lancaster. In Ohio, facilities that provide memory care are still classified as Residential Care Facilities, and the Ohio Department of Health is in charge of licensing and regulation.

    • Ohio is a relatively tax-friendly state for seniors, with Social Security income totally exempt from state taxes. While other retirement income, such as 401(k)s and IRAs are taxed at regular rates, there are exemptions some seniors in memory care in Fairfield County may be able to take advantage of.
    • Healthcare and housing costs can both impact the price of memory care, and in Fairfield County, these are cheaper than much of the rest of the United States. Healthcare costs run about 8 percent less than the U.S. average, and housing is much cheaper at 32 percent less than the rest of the country. 
    • The weather in Fairfield County may be a drawback for some seniors considering memory care facilities in this area. While summers are mild with highs in the mid 70s, winter temperatures are usually below freezing, and the area sees 40 inches or rain and 18 inches of snow on average every year. 
    • While violent crime rates in Fairfield County are more than 17 percent lower than the U.S. average, the area sees quite a bit of property crime. Property crime rates are 80 percent higher than the national average, so families of seniors may want to ask what procedures the facilities have in place to keep residents' belongings safe.
