    What to Consider About Memory Care in Middlesex County

    Massachusetts has 6,859,819 residents as of July 2017, and of these, approximately 130,000 people are estimated to have Alzheimer's. By 2025, this number is expected to increase 15.4 percent to 150,000 people. It's important for Massachusetts to have enough memory care facilities to support this population of seniors.
