    What to Consider About Memory Care in Norfolk County

    Norfolk County, which is the wealthiest county in Massachusetts, has 700,322 residents, 16.6 percent of whom are 65 or over. Of the 6,859,819 residents in Massachusetts, approximately 130,000 have Alzheimer's disease. By 2025, this number is expected to grow to 150,000, a 15.4 percent increase. With numbers likes these, it's important for the state to have enough memory care facilities to support this population.

    In Norfolk County, there are 22 memory care facilities, known as Dementia Special Care Units (DSCUs), to support residents who have cognitive impairments like Alzheimer's or dementia.

    • The climate in Norfolk County is comfortable for most of the year, aside from winter, which tends to be a bit cold and snowy. The average January low is 17, and the area receives an average of 41 inches of snow a year. Seniors who find winters challenging may want to keep this in mind.
    • In general, Massachusetts is considered moderately tax-friendly for retirees. While income from Social Security and public pensions are fully tax exempt, retirement income from other sources, including 401ks, IRAs and private pensions are subject to the state's income tax rate of 5.1 percent.
    • Crime in Norfolk County is relatively low, so seniors can feel safe living in this region of Massachusetts. On a scale of one (low crime) to 100 (high crime), Norfolk County's violent crime is 23, and property crime is 24.1. For property crime, this number is right around the state average of 21.1, but is much lower than the Boston-Cambridge-Newton metro area. Norfolk County's violent crime score is much lower than both the state average (31.6) and the average in the surrounding metro area (34.2).
