What to Consider About Memory Care in Mclean
McLean is home to roughly 48,000 people and has a large senior community that makes up over 20 percent of the population. In Virginia, it's estimated that 140,000 seniors are living with Alzheimer's disease, which is the leading cause of dementia and is present in roughly one in 10 elderly people.
In McLean, as in all of the state, memory care facilities are officially known as special care units. They are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. McLean has two memory care facilities, and there are over two dozen more in the surrounding area.
- Social Security benefits are not taxed in Virginia, and up to $12,000 of other types of retirement income is tax deductible. This may keep more money in the budget for memory care expenses in McLean.
- As is typical of northern Virginia, McLean is a fairly expensive place to live. The overall cost of living is more than double the national average, primarily due to the high cost of real estate. This may impact the cost of room and board in a memory care facility; however, families may save money on health care expenses in this city, which are about 6 percent less here than the nationwide average.
- McLean has a relatively low crime rate, with property and violent crime rates coming in below regional, state and national averages. On a 100-point scale, with a lower score representing less crime, McLean's violent crime rate is 18, which is about 13 points below the U.S. average. The property crime rate is 22.9, which is roughly 15 points below the national average. This may appeal to families researching memory care in northern Virginia.
- According to the American Lung Association, ozone pollution levels are high in Fairfax County, but short-term particle pollution levels are fairly low. This may be a consideration for families whose senior loved one has a respiratory or cardiovascular illness.
