What to Consider About Memory Care in Plymouth

Massachusetts is home to more than 120,000 people with Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other cognitive conditions. A portion of them live in Plymouth where seniors over age 64 comprise 17.6 percent of Historic Plymouth County. Located ninety minutes southeast of Boston, the coastal town of Plymouth is home to four dementia care facilities with 13 more in the surrounding communities. 

These Dementia Special Care Units, or DSCUs as they are known in Massachusetts, provide a secure and supportive residence for people with Alzheimer's and related conditions. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Plymouth

  • The Plymouth area enjoys four distinct seasons, with related temperature changes from 80 in the summer with above average rainfall to 20 in the winter, when snow can be heavy at times. While the weather may sometimes restrict activities, it provides an endless source of conversation topics.
  • Nearby Boston is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Tufts Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The Plymouth area gets good scores from the American Lung Association for local air quality including particulates and ozone. The local sea breezes and the distance from major cities make Plymouth an attractive place to live for people with dementia who also have respiratory conditions.
  • Massachusetts has been rated "not tax-friendly" for retirees by Kiplinger. The state's 5.15 percent income tax and 6.25 percent sales tax plus property tax, annual vehicle excise tax and estate tax up to 16 percent are all required of seniors as well, including taxes on income from IRAs, 401(k) plans and private pensions. There are a few reductions on property taxes for qualifying seniors. Social security benefits and public pensions are not taxed.

Paying for Memory Care in Plymouth

Memory Care costs in Plymouth start around $6,841 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.

It’s important to note that memory care rates in Plymouth and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
