    What to Consider About Memory Care in Auburn

    In Auburn, Massachusetts, 20 percent of the town's 16,700 residents are 65 or older. As senior citizens become the fastest-growing segment of the state's population, age-related medical conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease, are increasingly common. Already, 130,000 adults in Massachusetts, including 7,600 in the county, are living with dementia.

    Age-related memory loss has an enormous socioeconomic impact due to the care that patients require. When these needs become too difficult, families may turn to specialized memory care facilities. In Auburn and all of Massachusetts, the state Executive Office of Elder Affairs certifies dementia special care units based on their ability to ensure the well-being of dementia patients. Auburn is home to two memory care facilities, and a dozen others are located in Worcester County.

    • Auburn's competitive cost of living may benefit seniors who depend on a fixed income to cover their essential living expenses. Although the area's 15 percent more expensive than the national average, it's more affordable than most parts of the commonwealth. Additionally, healthcare costs are 15 percent below the national average.
    • The Auburn area is home to several world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as the Vibra Hospital of Western Massachusetts, UMass Memorial Medical Center and Saint Vincent Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses.
    • Thanks to its suburban location an hour from Boston, Auburn residents enjoy superior air quality. As part of Worcester County, the community received a C rating for ozone and an A rating for particle pollution. These conditions are unlikely to worsen symptoms caused by COPD or respiratory disorders.
    • For older adults, chilly New England weather is less than ideal. Compared to the national average, Auburn receives twice as much snow and 9 more inches of rain. Summers are warm and muggy with highs in the low 80s, but winters are unforgiving with average lows in the teens. In light of these conditions, memory care facilities must be prepared for all types of weather.
