What to Consider About Memory Care in Bethesda

Bethesda has a population of about 60,000 residents, and nearly 19 percent of them are aged 65 and older. For those Bethesda seniors living with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, a memory care facility may provide the resources that this population requires. Bethesda is home to two such facilities, with another 26 in nearby cities like Silver Spring and Potomac.

The Maryland Department of Health's Assisted Living Unit oversees the state's assisted living facilities, which include memory care facilities. These regulations ensure the facilities deliver high-quality care to seniors living in Bethesda and throughout the state.

  • Bethesda's cost of living is significantly higher than the national average, coming in at 222.1 on a scale where 100 represents the national average. Housing costs are especially high in Bethesda. As such, memory care facility costs are also higher than the national median.
  • Seniors in Bethesda may enjoy some tax savings, however. While Maryland does have a state income tax, the state does not tax social security income, which can result in some savings.
  • Seniors living in Bethesda will experience all four seasons. Winters are cold, with January lows in the 20s and about 15 inches of snow per year. Summers warm to high temperatures in the upper 80s. The area sees more rain and fewer sunny days than the national average.
  • Seniors' families can rest easy knowing the crime rates in Bethesda are below the national average. The violent crime rate is 27.7 and the property crime rate is 36.4 on a scale where one represents the safest city and 100 the most dangerous. For even more peace of mind, seniors' families may want to inquire about security features, such as cameras or gates, at the memory care facility.
