What to Consider About Memory Care in Madison County

Home to nearly 100,000 people, Madison County is roughly halfway between Nashville and Memphis, and more than 16 percent of its population is 65 or older. The county has three memory care facilities serving its older residents with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

Memory care facilities in Madison County and all of Tennessee are referred to either as assisted care living facilities or as residential homes for the aged. The Tennessee Department of Health licenses both types of facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Madison County has a true four-season climate, with hot summers and cold (though usually brief) winters. Summer highs average around 90, while winter lows regularly drop below 30. The area gets more than 200 annual days of sunshine but also much more rain than the national average. Memory care residents who choose Madison County will get to experience diverse weather.
  • The cost of living in Madison County is substantially lower than both the state and national averages. This is largely due to the area's inexpensive housing. An average home in Madison County sells for $106,200, less than half the national average of $216,200. The one area where Madison County has high costs is healthcare, which is 36 percent more expensive than in the average U.S. city.
  • Madison County is a low-tax landing spot for seniors and retirees. There are no state income taxes on Social Security benefits or other forms of retirement income, and property taxes in the area are low. That said, many newcomers are surprised by Tennessee's sales taxes, which rank among the nation's highest.
  • Memory care residents who worry about personal safety may want to be aware of Madison County's crime rates, which are substantially higher than average. The county's violent crime rates are 53.6 out of 100 (the national rate is 31.1), and its property crime rates are 53 (the national rate is 38.8). However, memory care facilities tend to be secure places to live. Most of them offer locking exterior doors, guards, and other safety features.

Paying for Memory Care in Madison County
