    What to Consider About Memory Care in Newton

    Newton is part of the greater Boston area, where an estimated 120,000 seniors have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or some other form of dementia. Just under 17 percent of the city's residents are seniors, which indicates a substantial need for dementia care facilities in the area. While there is only one memory care facility in Newton, an additional 126 facilities are located in surrounding cities, including Wayland, Brighton and Arlington. 

    In Massachusetts, facilities that provide residential care to seniors with dementia are officially known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs). ALRs often provide both memory care and assisted living services to seniors, as state regulations are similar for both levels of care. The Executive Office of Elder Affairs is responsible for certifying and overseeing ALRs throughout the state.

    • According to the American Lung Association, ozone pollution in Newton and throughout Middlesex County is minimal. That means that the air quality poses very little risk to seniors who have been diagnosed with respiratory illnesses. 
    • The Newton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Newton-Wellesley Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Although the overall cost of living is nearly 125 percent higher than the average U.S. city, the cost of healthcare in Newton is 17 percent lower. For seniors who need extensive medical attention, living in Newton may be more affordable than many other cities in the area.
    • Newton experiences extreme weather during the winter. The city averages 53 inches of snow per year, which is nearly double the U.S. average. Temperatures average as low as 17 degrees Fahrenheit in January. It's important for families to inquire about security measures that memory care facilities have in place to protect residents from wandering outdoors, especially during inclement weather.
