What to Consider About Memory Care in Ellis County

Ellis County is part of the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex in Northern Texas, which has 3 million residents. This is a state with 380,000 residents diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's Disease. Ellis County estimates that 11.5 percent of its population has a memory impairment, and of these 164,000 residents, 12 percent are seniors 65 and older who may be especially vulnerable to such diseases.

To care for these folks, Ellis County has nearly 40 memory care facilities that are regulated in Texas by the state's Department of Health and Senior Services. Licensing requires specific training for staff members. These facilities are designated Type B, indicating the need for 24-hour resident supervision and staff assistance for emergency evacuation. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Summers in Ellis County are known for being long and hot with high temperatures reaching well into the 90s. Seniors in memory care who are sensitive to high heat may be uncomfortable. Those with health conditions alleviated by warmer weather may find relief, as winters get little snow and temperatures average in the high 30s. 
  • Texas does not have a state income tax, which exempts income from Social Security benefits and retirement accounts. Families budgeting for a loved one's memory care may find the extra money helps. 
  • The overall cost of living in Ellis County is slightly higher than the national average. Housing is 10 points higher, while healthcare is nearly 20. These costs may affect memory care fees; families on a budget may want to take this into account when selecting a facility. 
  • The Ellis County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Baylor University Medical Center and Medical City Dallas Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
