What to Consider About Memory Care in Wylie
Wylie, Texas, is a family-friendly, lakeside community, part of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. There are over 380,000 Texas residents diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, including some of Wylie's 3,500 seniors who will find 15 memory care options in the area.
Some of the assisted living communities in Wylie have separate, secure memory care facilities that are part of the larger campus, served by the same dining facilities and housekeeping but secured and heavily monitored. These wings are staffed with employees who have state-mandated special training. Wylie has other Alzheimer's care only facilities, designated as such by the state's Department of Health and Senior Services and under the same staff training regulations.
Memory care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas, a regulation designating facilities where residents need staff assistance in an emergency and require overnight supervision.
North Texas weather, including Wylie, means long hot summers and mild winters with rare snow. Seniors in memory care who have respiratory conditions alleviated by warmer weather may be more comfortable here, but those sensitive to high heat may be uncomfortable during summer heat waves.
Texas residents are not subject to a state income tax, including income derived from retirement accounts and Social Security benefits. This may help families budgeting for memory care better afford boarding fees.
Wylie's cost of living is slightly higher than the rest of the country, although grocery and health care costs are slightly lower. Housing costs bring the average up, which may affect the monthly fees associated with live-in memory care.
- The Wylie area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as The University of Texas Center for Brain Health and Methodist Health System, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
