    What to Consider About Memory Care in Franklin

    Franklin, Massachusetts, is a small suburban town located about 40 miles southwest of Boston, the state capital, and home to 32,996 residents. There are 130,000 residents statewide with Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia, including some seniors in Franklin.

    Franklin is home to two memory care facilities with 16 located in nearby areas. In Franklin as in the rest of Massachusetts, memory care facilities are officially known as "Dementia Special Care Units" (DSCUs). Some assisted living facilities in Franklin may also have special memory care wings in their facility with staff that are trained to care for residents who need memory care.

    • Since Franklin is a part of Massachusetts and New England, the area experiences four distinct seasons, with summer, spring and fall offering the most pleasant weather as well as beautiful foliage, which seniors may enjoy in outdoor spaces. Winters can be challenging in Franklin, as they tend to be cold and snowy. Franklin receives an average of 42 inches of snow per year, much higher than the national average of 26 inches.

On a cost of living index where the U.S. average is 100, Franklin's cost of living sits at 152, slightly higher than the state average of 139. Housing is the biggest factor that affects cost of living, and for seniors, the cost will vary based on the memory care facility they or their family chooses.
    • Massachusetts is moderately tax-friendly towards seniors, as Social Security income is not taxed; however, other forms of retirement income are fully taxed. These include private pension funds and retirement account withdrawals. In addition, the Massachusetts estate tax has an exemption of $1 million, among the lowest in the country.
    • Seniors can have peace of mind living in Franklin, knowing that the crime rate is low.
