What to Consider About Memory Care in Provo
With a population of 117,335, Provo is Utah's third-largest city. Although adults who are 65 and older represent just 6 percent of the population, Utah has one of the highest per capita rates of Alzheimer's disease and dementia in the nation.
Several memory care facilities that support the needs of this population are located in Provo and the surrounding area. To offer these services and to maintain a secure dementia unit, organizations must be registered as a Type II assisted living facility through the Utah Department of Health, Facility Licensing and Certification.
- Like other parts of Utah, Provo experiences some extreme weather. Average highs and lows vary between 92 and 20 degrees, and the area receives twice as much snow as the average U.S. city. Before selecting a memory care facility for your loved one, determine which safeguards are in place to protect residents during severe weather.
- Provo is a popular destination for seniors and families due to its low crime rate. Law enforcement agencies reported just 18.7 property crimes and 1.3 violent crimes per 1,000 residents. For added protection, secure dementia care units are required to have restricted access systems and other security measures in place.
- Residents of Provo enjoy a low cost of living that's slightly more affordable than other parts of the state. Although health care expenses are 5 percent higher and housing costs are 40 percent higher than other parts of the United States, utility rates and transportation expenditures are slightly lower than the national average. For these reasons, memory care in Provo may cost slightly less than other areas.
- All retirement income, including Social Security retirement benefits, are subject to Utah's state income tax. However, many filers qualify for tax credits on retirement income from pensions and IRAs, excluding 401(k) distributions. The state's income tax policy may affect the affordability of memory care and assisted living services for seniors who depend on a fixed income.
