    What to Consider About Memory Care in Washington County

    Washington County has a little over 135,000 residents, nearly one in five of whom are aged 65 and over. Alzheimer's disease and dementia are relatively less common here than in the nation as a whole. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services projects that about 9 percent of seniors who receive Medicare benefits have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, versus the national average of 11.3 percent of seniors.

    There are nearly a dozen memory care facilities in the Washington County region. In this county, as in all of Wisconsin, memory care services are generally provided within community-based residential facilities.

    • Washington County seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits or income from government pensions, which may allow for more money in their memory care budgets. Income from retirement savings accounts and private pensions is fully taxable. 
    • Living expenses are a little higher in Washington County than in the state and nation as a whole, which may result in memory care expenses that are slightly above average. Similarly, healthcare expenses are a little higher here than elsewhere in the state and nation. 
    • Washington County is a fairly safe county with property crime and violent crime rates that are well below state and national averages. On a 100-point scale, with a low score representing low crime, the county's violent crime rate is 23.6 and the property crime rate is 23.7, compared to the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. This may provide peace of mind for families seeking memory care in this county.
    • On average, Washington County has 190 sunny days every year and receives 33 inches of rain and 40 inches of snow annually. Temperatures range between 10 degrees and 81 degrees over the course of a year, which is a little cooler than the national average. As they're touring local memory care facilities, families may want to find out how residents are kept safe and comfortable when outside temperatures are low.
