What to Consider About Memory Care in Sherman
Sherman, Texas is a small, quiet community about 60 miles north of Dallas. In a state with over 380,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's disease and dementia residents, many of Sherman's 5,600 seniors may need to transition into memory care living. Sherman has over 30 memory care facilities to care for their aging population. Many of these homes are dedicated Alzheimer's care facilities, although some are separate, secure wings of larger assisted living communities.
Both independent memory care facilities and those incorporated as part of a larger assisted living campus in Texas are subject to specific state regulations that focus on staff training and certification. These require Alzheimer's and dementia care be provided in Type B nursing care facilities that house individuals who would be unable to evacuate in an emergency without staff assistance. Type B facilities also provide services to seniors who need overnight supervision and aid. In Texas, senior living communities that are certified Alzheimer's care facilities admit only those with a physician's diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
Weather in Sherman means long, hot summers in the high 90s and mild, snow-free winters. Seniors sensitive to extreme heat may be uncomfortable, but others may find the warmer weather alleviates their sore joints or other health conditions.
- Texas does not have a state income tax. Income from retirement accounts and investments as well as Social Security benefits are also state tax exempt. Families who are helping their loved ones pay for memory care may have extra money to work with due to there being no state income tax. Although property taxes and sales tax are higher in Texas than in other states, these taxes should have little effect on those in memory care housing.
Crime rates in Sherman are high despite its small size — both property crimes and violent crimes are higher than the national average. While seniors in memory care facilities are generally secured and protected, it is important to take into account that property crime rates, including petty theft and theft of money and property, are about 15 percent higher than the national average.
- The Sherman area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Texoma Medical Center and Advocate Sherman Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
