What to Consider About Memory Care in Burlington

Burlington, Massachusetts, is a suburb of Boston with a history stretching back to the colonial area. This is a state with over 130,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's and dementia patients, mostly seniors aged 65 and older. Many of Burlington's seniors, comprising 20 percent of the town's population of 26,000, may be vulnerable to these conditions. To accommodate them, Burlington has nearly 40 memory care facilities, with more in the greater Boston metro area.

Memory care facilities in Burlington are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which stipulates security measures for residents, staff to patient ratios and around-the-clock supervision. 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). 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Burlington

  • Burlington residents, as all of those in Massachusetts, are exempt from tax on Social Security income, which may leave more money available for families budgeting for memory care costs. 
  • Weather in Burlington is warm in the summer, and cold and snowy in the winter. Seniors who are sensitive to high heat may be comfortable here, as July average temperatures are rarely higher than the mid-80s, although those in memory care with health conditions aggravated by cold may be uncomfortable. January lows are consistently in the teens. 
  • The Burlington 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.
  • Burlington's cost of living is higher than the national average, mainly due to housing costs. At nearly triple the U.S. average, these higher housing costs may increase the boarding fees for memory care, due to higher facility cost of operations.
