What to Consider About Memory Care in Rockville
Rockville, Maryland, has a population of a little less than 70,000 people, about 15 percent of whom are seniors. According to the Alzheimer's Association, this is the demographic most often affected by Alzheimer's disease, which is the top cause of dementia. Roughly 110,000 people in Maryland are currently diagnosed with this disease.
To meet the needs of seniors with dementia, the state provides memory care services in assisted living facilities, which are officially called assisted living programs. Rockville is home to nine memory care facilities, and there are 30 more nearby. These facilities, as well as all facilities in the state, are licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
- Social Security benefits and disbursements from public pensions are not taxable in Maryland, which may help seniors and families afford the cost of memory care in Rockville. All other forms of retirement income are taxed, but seniors can claim a fairly large deduction to partially or completely offset the expense.
- While Rockville's crime rate is higher than that of more than half of Maryland's cities, it is significantly lower than the crime rates in similarly sized communities across the country. This may provide families peace of mind as they seek out memory care for their loved ones in this city.
- Rockville has hot, humid summers and very cold winters, which may be a consideration for seniors who enjoy being outdoors throughout the year. Annual temperatures range between 26 degrees and 87 degrees, and the region receives just 18 inches of annual snowfall.
- As is typical of the region, Rockville's cost of living is high relative to the U.S. average, mainly due to the high cost of real estate. Healthcare expenses are on par with the national average, but transportation expenses are almost 60 percent higher. This may be a concern for families on a tight budget who will be visiting their loved one in memory care.
