    What to Consider About Memory Care in Shelby County

    Home to Elvis Presley and blues music, Shelby County is the hub of a major metropolitan area in Southwest Tennessee and has a population of more than 930,000 people, 13.1 percent who are over the age of 65. Residents in that age bracket who have Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia may choose between 12 memory care facilities in the county.

    As is the case for all of Tennessee, memory care facilities in Shelby County are referred to as either assisted care living facilities or residential homes for the aged and must receive a license from the Tennessee Department of Health. This license certifies that the facility is capable of caring for adults in varying stages of memory decline.

    • Shelby County's winters are short and mild, and fall and spring tend to be pleasant. Memory care residents who enjoy spending supervised time outside may find their excursions are limited by the sweltering summer days. The highs in July and August regularly exceed 90 degrees, and the humidity can be oppressive.
    • At eight percent cheaper than the national average, Shelby County's cost of living is very low for a major metropolitan area in the Sun Belt. The county's housing costs are a full one-third lower than average, making the area attractive to family members wanting to relocate or purchase a second home near their loved one in memory care.
    • Seniors in Shelby County do not pay state taxes on any of their retirement income, including Social Security benefits. This friendly tax treatment leaves more money available for memory care residents to spend on high-quality care. The area's property taxes are also much lower than average.
    • Shelby County is known for its violent crime rate of 68.7 out of 100, which is more than double the U.S. average of 31.1. While safety-conscious seniors may want to keep this fact in mind, they might also consider that memory care facilities, most of which have extensive security features, are among the safest places to live.
