    What to Consider About Memory Care in Waldorf

    About 25 miles south of the nation's capital, the Maryland city of Waldorf is home to more than 6,000 seniors. Approximately 1,000 seniors in the city are dealing with Alzheimer's disease or some other form of dementia. Help for families affected by these illnesses is provided by two memory care facilities in the city. Facilities qualified to have an Alzheimer’s Special Care Unit must have a disclosure statement and meet other requirements of the state's Assisted Living Program (ALP).

    Families may want to ensure prospective memory care facilities have effective climate control so that their loved ones are protected during inclement weather. The climate in Waldorf is cold during the winter and warm and humid during the summer with occasional heat waves. 

    • For seniors in Maryland, railroad retirement benefits and social security income are exempt from taxes. Some seniors may also qualify for a yearly increase in their pension exclusion. These tax benefits may make it easier for families to pay for memory care.
    • The cost of living in Waldorf is about 25 percent above the national average. Housing and transportation contribute most to this difference. Waldorf, however, is significantly more affordable than the nearby Washington D.C. metro area.
    • Crime in Waldorf is above the national, state, and Washington D.C. metro area averages. This applies to both property and violent crime. Families concerned about safety may want to inquire about the security at memory care facilities they may want to use.
    • Waldorf has no/few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Fort Washington.
