    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lake County

    There are more than 230,000 people living in Lake County, Ohio, and almost 20 percent of these are aged 65 years or older and the most at risk for diseases related to memory, such as dementia or Alzheimer's. Throughout Ohio, it is estimated that 220,000 people were suffering from Alzheimer's as of 2018, and Lake County has six memory care facilities to meet the needs of this demographic. In Ohio, these are considered part of the Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) designation and are licensed and regulated by the Ohio Department of Health.

    • Lake County has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Cleveland.
    • The weather in Lake County is typical of the rest of Northeastern Ohio, with mild summers and cold winters. Summer highs usually average around 80 degrees, and winter temperatures often get into the low 20s and teens. Nearby Lake Erie causes this county to get a full 36 inches of snow per year, 10 inches more than the national average, which could be a concern for cold-sensitive seniors or families coming to visit.
    • While the overall cost of living in Lake County is 7 percent lower than the U.S. average, this is due to the very low housing costs. Residents will pay 6 percent and 11 percent more than the national average, respectively, for goods and services and groceries, which may be a concern for budget-sensitive seniors. However, healthcare costs are only about 1 percent higher than the the national average.
    • Ohio is a relatively tax-friendly state for seniors because Social Security income is not subject to state taxes. There are also exemptions available to some seniors to offset the tax liability of income from IRAs and 401(k)s.
