    What to Consider About Memory Care in Newburyport

    Newburyport is a small, seaside community located on the outskirts of the greater Boston, Massachusetts, metro area. Estimates by the state of Massachusetts indicate that over 130,000 of its residents have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Newburyport, population 18,000, has 3,500 seniors aged 65 and older. To provide around-the-clock care for Newburyport seniors with dementia and Alzheimer's, the city has a dozen memory care facilities and there are more in the greater Boston area. 

    Memory care facilities in Newburyport, as in all of Massachusetts, may either stand alone as a dedicated memory care home or be separate wings of an assisted living campus. Stand-alone memory care facilities are referred to as dementia special care units (DSCUs). Other memory care facilities attached to assisted living communities are called special care residences (SCRs). 

    • Weather in Newburyport includes cold winters with plenty of snow, including blizzards. Temperatures can regularly drop into the teens in January. Seniors in memory care with certain health conditions may be uncomfortable. Summers are warm and not overly hot, with July averages in the low 80s, which may bring relief to those sensitive to high heat. 
    • Massachusetts does not levy a state income tax on Social Security income. This may make budgeting for memory care easier for residents and their families. 
    • Newburyport, as part of the greater Boston metro area, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Massachusetts General Hospital — Boston and Boston Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Newburyport's cost of living is more than one and a half times the national average. Housing costs, more than two and a half times the rest of the country, skew this number higher, as healthcare and grocery costs are more in line with the rest of the country. The higher housing costs may cause the operational costs for memory care facilities to increase, something that families on a budget may need to consider.
