What to Consider About Memory Care in Billerica

Billerica is a safe, affluent suburb of Boston, the capital city of Massachusetts, a state with over 130,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Billerica's population of 43,000 includes an over-65 population of 6,300, many of whom will need accommodations in one of the town's five memory care facilities.

In Billerica, and all of Massachusetts, memory care facilities are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Regulations include security measures for residents, staff to patient ratios and 24-hour supervision and accountability. In order to work in an Alzheimer's or dementia care facility, employees are required by state law to undergo specific training for these conditions. Memory care facilities in Massachusetts can either be separate wings of an assisted living campus or a facility devoted entirely to memory care. Stand-alone memory care facilities are referred to as “Dementia Special Care Units” (DSCUs). Other memory care facilities attached to assisted living communities are called “Special Care Residence” (SCR). 

  • The state of Massachusetts does not tax Social Security income, which may leave more money available for families budgeting for memory care costs. Other tax breaks include an over-65 state tax exemption, as well as several other exemptions for seniors and those with a qualifying disability. 
  • Weather in Billerica means cold, snowy winters and warm summers. Those in memory care with health conditions aggravated by cold may be uncomfortable. 
  • Billerica, as part of the greater Boston area, 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.
  • Cost of living in Billerica is about one and a half times the national average. While healthcare is noticeably lower, the housing costs, more than double the rest of the country, may cause memory care fees to rise.
