    What to Consider About Memory Care in Arlington

    Arlington, Massachusetts, is a safe suburb of Boston, with settlements dating back before the American Revolution. This is a state where over 130,000 residents have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Arlington's seniors aged 65 and over, 16 percent of the town's population of 45,000, make up part of this number and may need care in one of the area's many memory care facilities. 

    Memory care facilities in Arlington are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. This includes both assisted living facilities that have separate memory care wings as well as Alzheimer's-only treatment centers, called dementia special care units (DSCUs). Other memory care facilities attached to assisted living communities are called special care residences (SCR). 

    • Arlington residents, as all of those in Massachusetts, are exempt from tax on Social Security income. As families budget for a loved one's memory care costs, this extra money may help. 
    • Weather in Arlington is warm in the summer and cold and snowy in the winter. Seniors living in memory care who are sensitive to high heat may be comfortable here, as July average temperatures are rarely higher than the mid-80s. However, those with health conditions aggravated by cold may be uncomfortable as January lows are consistently in the teens. 
    • The Arlington area, as part of the Boston metropolis, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Arlington's cost of living is nearly double the U.S. average, due to housing costs that are nearly four times the rest of the nation. While healthcare and grocery costs are more in line with the national average, these high housing costs may increase the cost of operations for memory care facilities in the area, something those on a budget may need to take into account.
