What to Consider About Memory Care in Leander

Leander is a small, safe suburb of Austin, the state capital of Texas. This is a state with 380,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's patients. Some of Leander's 3,250 seniors over 65, may be part of this group needing daily treatment and supervision for dementia in one of the town's memory care facilities. There are over 40 memory care facilities in Leander and a further 25 in the greater Austin area. 

Some assisted living communities feature a dedicated memory care wing, secure from the main campus and under different state regulations. Leander also has several Alzheimer's care-specific facilities whose residents are only admitted with a physician's diagnosis. Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas, a legal designation for residents who require overnight supervision and care from certified staff and assistance in an emergency. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Leander

  • Leander's climate is desert-like, with long, hot summers of temperatures reaching into the 90s and heat waves of over 100 degrees. Winters are typically mild and snow-free, comfortable for aging joints. 
  • Texas does not have a state income tax. This includes retirement income and pensions, meaning that families budgeting for memory care may have more money to work with.  
  • The cost of living in Leander is a bit higher than the national average, mainly due to a higher housing cost. This may increase memory care fees, as higher housing costs are associated with a higher cost of operations for memory care. 
  • The Leander area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Cross Creek Hospital - Austin and the UT Health Austin Cognitive Disorders Center at the Mulva Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Paying for Memory Care in Leander

Memory Care costs in Leander start around $5,022 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.

It’s important to note that memory care rates in Leander and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
