    What to Consider About Memory Care in Temple

    Temple is located in central Texas, just outside Fort Hood Army base and part way between Dallas and Austin. Texas is a state in which over 380,000 of its residents have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Temple's population of 75,000 includes an over-65 population of 14.5 percent, many of whom fall into this memory condition category. To care for these folks, there are two memory care facilities in the Temple area. 

    Memory care facilities in Texas are licensed as Type B homes, with state regulations for staff certification and training. Residents of Type B facilities require overnight supervision and staff assistance in case of emergency evacuation. To be accepted in a designated memory care facility a physician's diagnosis is required. 

    • The climate in Temple is hot in the summer, with heat waves reaching over 100 degrees. Memory care residents sensitive to high temperatures may be uncomfortable, but the mild winters and rare snow may be comfortable for aging joints. 
    • Texas does not have a state income tax, including income from retirement accounts, disability benefits and Social Security pensions. The extra money may help families on a budget afford memory care. Higher property taxes and sales taxes in Texas typically leave memory care residents unaffected. 
    • Cost of living in Temple is lower than the national average, especially housing costs. Lower costs for housing may make memory care fees less in Temple than other areas of the state, as the operating costs for these facilities may be lower. 
    • The Temple area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Baylor, Scott, and White - Temple and the Central Texas Veterans Administration Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
