What to Consider About Memory Care in Sachse
Sachse is a safe, family-friendly suburb of Dallas, one of the largest metro areas in Texas. This is a state with over 380,000 of its residents diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Many of the over-65 seniors that comprise Sachse's population of 26,000, nine percent of Sachse's residents, are included in these dementia cases. To care for these Texans, Sachse is home to nearly 50 memory care facilities.
Some assisted living communities in Sachse have a separate, secure wing for memory care residents that are designed for aging in place, others are facilities completely dedicated to Alzheimer's care. Memory care facilities are subject to specific state regulations, focusing on staff training and certification.
Texas stipulates that Alzheimer's and dementia care be provided in Type B nursing care facilities. Type B facilities house those who would be unable to evacuate in an emergency without staff assistance and those who require overnight supervision and aid.
Sachse's weather is mild in the winter, but in the summer heat waves of 100 degrees or hotter are common. Memory care residents who are especially sensitive to heat will likely be uncomfortable, although the milder winters may bring relief to stiff joints.
- There is no state income tax in Texas. Retirement income and Social Security benefits are also exempt from state taxation. The extra money may help families budgeting for a loved one's memory care.
Sachse's cost of living is higher than the national average, with the increase solely attributable to housing costs. At one and a half times the national average, the high price of housing may affect the cost of dementia care and boarding, as the operating costs for some facilities may be influenced by this.
- The Sachse area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as UT Dallas Center for Brain Health and Baylor, Scott & White - Sachse, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
