    What to Consider About Memory Care in Wilmington

    The senior community in the city of Wilmington comprises over 13 percent of the 71,000-person population. Wilmington is situated on the eastern shore of the Delaware River in Delaware, a state in which the Alzheimer's Association estimates that 18,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease.

    The Wilmington area has a dozen memory care facilities for families to choose from, with five located in the city proper and the other seven in nearby cities. Generally speaking, memory care services are provided in assisted living facilities that specialize in serving residents who have dementia. 

    • Wilmington seniors are not taxed on their Social Security income, which may leave more money in the budget for memory care. While other types of retirement income are taxable in Delaware, there is a large deduction for taxpayers that are over the age of 60.
    • The combined rate of property and violent crime in Wilmington is among the highest in the country, with residents having a one in 13 chance of being the victim of any type of crime. When compared to other U.S. cities of similar size, Wilmington's crime rate is significantly higher. This may be a consideration for families who are moving their loved ones to memory care in this region. 
    • The Wilmington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Wilmington Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Wilmington summers are hot and humid. The hottest month of the year is July, with highs in the 80s and a 60 percent chance of muggy weather. Winters are relatively mild, however, with January temperatures ranging between 26 degrees and 40 degrees. To keep residents from wandering outdoors during very hot or very cold temperatures, memory care facilities employ alarm systems and security cameras.
