    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mcallen

    McAllen, Texas, has a population of nearly 143,000 people, approximately 12 percent of whom are 65 and over. According to the Alzheimer's Association, roughly 380,000 Texans are living with Alzheimer's, and one in 10 seniors will be diagnosed.

    As well as providing high-quality memory care facilities, McAllen is home to McAllen Medical Center, which offers specialty care for older adults. Its inpatient Acute Care for the Elderly unit focuses on addressing health issues in older patients using the standards of health care outlined by a national geriatric program called NICHE.

    • While sales and property taxes are relatively high in Texas, the state does not impose an income tax, making it a tax-friendly state for retirees. McAllen seniors hang on to the entirety of their Social Security income, withdrawals from retirement accounts and public and private pensions, which may make memory care more affordable. 
    • The air quality of Hidalgo County is exceptional, which may be beneficial to McAllen seniors who have respiratory or cardiovascular diseases. The American Lung Association gave the county an A for ozone pollution, an A for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution.
