What to Consider About Memory Care in Edmond
Edmond is located in the heart of Oklahoma and is home to a little less than 92,000 people, about 14 percent of whom are over the age of 65. According to the Alzheimer's Association, over 64,000 Oklahomans have Alzheimer's disease, which is a leading cause of dementia.
Families of local seniors with dementia can choose from nearly half a dozen memory care facilities, and there are 11 more facilities nearby. Memory care facilities are situated within assisted living centers, a type of assisted living facilities that are licensed to provide assistance with services or care for residents with dementia.
- Social Security benefits are tax-exempt in Oklahoma, and while other types of retirement income are subject to income tax, residents over the age of 65 can claim a $10,000 deduction. This may enable seniors with dementia to put more money toward the cost of memory care.
- Edmond's overall crime rate is around the median for cities in Oklahoma, with roughly 50 percent of cities in the state having a higher crime rate.
