What to Consider About Memory Care in Salt Lake County

Salt Lake County is the biggest county in Utah, a state where there are an estimated 31,000 people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. By 2025, this number is expected to be around 35 percent higher at 42,000. Of the 1,100,000 or so residents of Salt Lake County, just over ten percent of them are aged 65 and over. While this is a relatively low demographic in comparison to other parts of the country, there's still a definite need for appropriate facilities to care for seniors with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. There are 27 of these facilities located throughout Salt Lake County that are regulated by the Bureau of Health Facility Licensing and Certification

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Salt Lake County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as St. Mark's Hospital and the Salt Lake Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors with a respiratory condition may find that their illness is aggravated by the air in Salt Lake County. The American Lung Association has rated the air the 18th worst in the country, with ratings of "F" in its ozone and 24-hour particle pollution categories. 
  • The overall cost of living in Salt Lake County is around 25 percent more expensive than the national average. This is mostly due to the cost of housing, which is 80 percent more expensive than national averages. Healthcare, which may be a priority for seniors requiring memory care treatment, is almost five percent more expensive than the national average.
  • In Salt Lake County, like the rest of the state of Utah, Social Security benefits are taxed. This is something seniors and their families should keep in mind when budgeting for a memory care facility.
