What to Consider About Memory Care in Wickliffe

Wickliffe is located on the shores of Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio and has a population of 12,736 — 23 percent of whom are 65 or older. This age group is most vulnerable to developing Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease and other forms of dementia. In fact, according to the Alzheimer's Association, 220,000 seniors in Ohio have one of these diseases. 

Families of seniors in Wickliffe with Alzheimer's and related dementias can choose from seven memory care facilities, one in the city and six nearby, such as Mentor and Richmond Heights. Memory Care Facilities in Ohio are known as Residential Care Facilities and are located in their own facilities or co-located with assisted living facilities. In Ohio, the Department of Health oversees the licensing and regulations for both types of facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Wickliffe

  • Ohio is a somewhat tax-friendly and doesn't tax Social Security income. The state does tax withdrawals from retirement accounts, and wages earned by seniors are taxed at normal rates. This means that Wickliffe seniors relying on SSI may have a little more money left for memory care monthly fees.
  • In Wickliffe, temperatures can be extreme in winter with lows in the 20s, and the July high temperatures reach 80 degrees on average. Seniors and their loved ones may want to find out how facilities keep residents comfortable in extreme temperatures.
  • Based on a scale of 1 (low) to 100 (high), the crime rate in Wickliffe is less than half the U.S. average for both property and violent crime. Family members coming to visit residents in memory care facilities may rest easier knowing that the city is statistically very safe.
  • The cost of living in Wickliffe in 84, which is lower than the U.S. average of 100 and Ohio state average of 88. This is driven mainly by extremely low housing and health costs. This may impact the monthly costs of memory care indirectly and can also help keep healthcare costs in check.
