What to Consider About Memory Care in Allen

Allen, a safe and affluent suburb just north of Dallas, Texas, is considered part of the thriving Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, with a population of 101,000. The state estimates that over 380,000 of its residents are diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's Disease. Eight percent of Allen's population are seniors aged 65 and older; to care for those with memory conditions, Allen has over 40 memory care facilities. These homes are subject to specific state regulations, focusing on staff training and certification. The Texas Department of Health and Senior Services stipulates that Alzheimer's and dementia care be provided by Type B nursing care facilities, those that provide overnight supervision and staff-assisted emergency evacuation. Facilities that are designated Certified Alzheimer's care campuses admit only residents with a physician's diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

  • There is no Texas state income tax, although property taxes and sales tax are higher than many other states. Families budgeting for a loved one's memory care fees may benefit from the income tax break. 
  • Allen's cost of living is higher than the national average, although home prices are the only area where the difference is notable. Healthcare and grocery costs are slightly lower than the national average, although some seniors may still be affected by higher housing costs. 
  • The Allen area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as UT Southwestern Medical Center and UT Dallas Center for Brain Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
