What to Consider About Memory Care in Framingham

Framingham is an affluent suburb of Bostonthe capital of Massachusetts. This is a state with over 130,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Framingham's population is just 71,000, although 14 percent of those are seniors over 65, many of whom will need accommodations in memory care facilities. To care for these folks, Framingham has over 20 memory care facilities, with more in the greater Boston metro area.

Memory care facilities are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which stipulates security measures for residents, staff to patient ratios and around-the-clock supervision. Workers in designated dementia care facilities are required by state law to undergo specific training for these conditions. This includes both assisted living facilities that have separate memory care wings as well as Alzheimer's only treatment centers, referred to as “Dementia Special Care Units” (DSCUs). Other memory care facilities attached to assisted living communities are called “Special Care Residence” (SCR). 

  • Framingham 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. In addition, those over 65 may claim a state tax exemption, and there are several other exemptions for seniors and those with a qualifying disability. 
  • Weather in Framingham is warm in the summer, and cold and snowy in the winter. 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. 
  • The Framingham 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.
  • Cost of living in Framingham is notably higher than the national average. This figure is due mainly to housing costs, which are more than double the U.S. average. Grocery costs and health care are more in line with the national average. While higher housing costs may affect some memory care fees, many seniors in memory care facilities should be largely unaffected.
