The 10 Best Memory Care Facilities in Katy, TX for 2024

The senior population of the small town of Katy accounts for 12% of its 24,000 residents. Alzheimer's accounted for 6.6% of deaths in 2016 in the city, the same percentage as in 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since the population increased by 70% during those periods, the 29% increase in deaths from this disease and the overall death rate is likely the result of population growth.

Memory care communities are residences explicitly designed for people with memory impairments. Staff members trained in dementia care are on hand 24/7 to assist with daily living activities such as dressing, bathing, grooming and medications, while housekeeping services are available for convenience. The use of technology in many of these communities enables residents and families to stay connected while supervised, tailored activities are available daily to stimulate a resident's physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

As well as offering information on the costs of care in the city and nearby communities, this guide also provides in-depth information on the sources and services available to those with dementia and their families.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Katy

Katy is a city in Texas, the state with the fourth highest incidence of Alzheimer's disease in the nation. The senior community in Katy comprises about 14 percent of the city's 18,000 residents. According to the Alzheimer's Association, one in 10 seniors over the age of 65 has Alzheimer's disease.

Although Katy is a relatively small city, it is home to 15 memory care facilities, and there are 15 more facilities in neighboring communities. While some of these facilities have their own dedicated building where they exclusively provide memory care services, others are situated within Type B assisted living facilities. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Katy

 

  • The air quality in Katy is relatively poor. The American Lung Association gave Harris County an F for ozone pollution, a C for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution. Seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular may want to speak with their medical practitioner to determine how the city's air quality may affect them. 
  • With a crime rate that is lower than 62 percent of Texas cities, Katy is a relatively safe community. Residents have a one in 658 chance of being the victim of a violent crime, compared to the Texas average of one in 230. This may provide peace of mind for families of seniors in memory care in this city.
  • Katy's hot, humid summers may be a drawback for seniors who are sensitive to extreme heat. The hottest month of the year is August when highs soar into the 90s and lows are in the 70s. Winters are comfortable, however, with January highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
  • Texas does not have an income tax, which means that Katy seniors hang on to all of their Social Security benefits, retirement account income and pension disbursements.
