    What to Consider About Memory Care in Anderson County

    Located about two hours southeast of Dallas, Anderson County is home to 57,000 residents, 14.5 percent of whom are 65 or older. For residents in that age bracket who have Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, Anderson County is home to three memory care facilities.

    These facilities operate as divisions of assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Texas and require a Type B license from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.

    • Anderson County has hot summers and short, mild winters. Daytime highs in July average 93 degrees, and nighttime lows in January average 35. The area gets only one inch of snow during most years but about six inches more rain per year than the average U.S. city. With 225 annual sunny days in Anderson County, memory care residents get ample opportunities to enjoy supervised recreation outside.
    • With a cost of living 19 percent less than the average U.S. city, Anderson County is highly affordable for memory care residents and their families. Housing costs, in particular, are bargain-priced in the area, with the average home selling for under $100,000. Healthcare, however, which can be a major expense for memory care residents, is about 13 percent more expensive than average in Anderson County.
    • Senior citizens in Anderson County do not pay a state income tax on their Social Security benefits, nor are they taxed on private retirement income. Because of this favorable tax treatment, memory care residents in the area can put more money toward receiving the best healthcare.
    • Anderson County's violent crime rate is 51.1 out of 100, compared to the national average of 31.1. Its property crime rate is 44.7, compared to the national average of 38.1. While these somewhat elevated numbers may alarm a safety-conscious memory care resident, it's worth noting that most memory care facilities are highly secure and offer an abundance of safeguards to protect residents, such as cameras and self-locking doors.
