    What to Consider About Memory Care in Montgomery County

    Situated about an hour northwest of Nashville, Montgomery County has 200,000 residents, and just over 9 percent of them are 65 years or older. The county has two memory care facilities for its older residents with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

    As is the case in all of Tennessee, memory care facilities in Montgomery County fall into two categories: assisted care living facilities and residential homes for the age. Both categories must be licensed by the Tennessee Department of Health.

    • Montgomery County has hot, humid summers, with July highs averaging 89 degrees. Winters tend to be short but can get cold. Nighttime lows in January average 26 degrees. The area is not known for snow, however, averaging only three inches per year. Memory care residents who like to spend supervised time outside can do so during the 208 annual sunny days in Montgomery County.
    • Montgomery County is an affordable place to live. Its overall cost of living is 8 percent less than the national average, though healthcare in the county, often a major expense for memory care residents, is 8 percent higher than what it costs in the average U.S. city. Family members thinking of purchasing a home to be near their loved one can find great deals, as housing costs in Montgomery County are 18 percent below average.
    • Social Security benefits and other retirement income are not taxed at the state level in Montgomery County. As a result, memory care residents get to keep more of their money to put toward health care expenses. Tennessee has low property taxes, as well, but one of the nation's highest sales tax rates.
    • Safety-conscious seniors may want to be aware of Montgomery County's higher-than-average crime. Its rate of violent crime stands at 50.2 on a scale of one to 100 (100 is worst), is substantially higher than the national average of 31.1. Its property crime rate of 53.1 also exceeds the national average of 38.1.
