    What to Consider About Memory Care in Dedham

    Dedham is a small, family-friendly suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, a state with over 130,000 people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease or another memory illness. Out of Dedham's population of 25,000,  20 percent are seniors aged 65 and older, a number of whom may be vulnerable to dementia and similar conditions. To treat these folks and provide around-the-clock supervision, there are twenty memory care facilities in the Dedham area. 

    The Massachusetts Department of Public Health regulates and licenses Alzheimer's-only treatment centers, referred to as dementia special care units  (DSCUs), as well as memory care facilities attached to assisted living communities, called special care residences (SCR).

    • Dedham residents, like all those in Massachusetts, are not subject to a state tax on Social Security income or disability benefits. This may be helpful as families budget money for a loved one's memory care fees.  In addition, there are several other exemptions for seniors and those with a qualifying disability. 
    • Winters in Dedham are very chilly, with temperatures regularly dropping into the teens and a lot of snow. Summers are warm and mild, with July averages in the mid-80s. Dedham seniors who are sensitive to high heat may be comfortable here, although those in memory care with health conditions aggravated by cold may be uncomfortable. 
    • Dedham, 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 Holy Family Hospital and Tewkesbury Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Dedham is one and a half times the national average, mainly due to housing prices, which are more than two and a half times the rest of the county. This may increase memory care fees, as the cost of operations for some facilities may be higher than other areas of the state. Healthcare, however, is notably lower than the national average.
