What to Consider About Memory Care in Revere
Revere, rich in history dating back to the Colonial Era, is a suburb of Boston, the capital of Massachusetts. This is a state with over 130,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's and dementia patients, mostly aged 65 and older. About 15 percent of the 54,000 people living in Revere fall into this age group. Many of these seniors may need accommodations in memory care facilities. To care for them, Revere has over 50 memory care facilities, with more in the greater Boston metro area.
Memory care facilities in Revere are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which stipulates security measures for residents, staff to patient ratios and around-the-clock supervision. State law requires staff in these facilities to have specific training for memory care. This includes both assisted living facilities that have separate memory care wings as well as Alzheimer's only treatment centers, referred to as “Dementia Special Care Units” (DSCUs). Other memory care facilities attached to assisted living communities are called “Special Care Residence” (SCR).
- Revere residents, as all of those in Massachusetts, are exempt from tax on Social Security income, which may leave more money available for families budgeting for memory care costs.
Weather in Revere is warm in the summer, and cold and snowy in the winter. Seniors who are sensitive to high heat may be comfortable here, although those in memory care with health conditions aggravated by cold may be uncomfortable.
- The Revere area, as part of the Boston metropolis, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Revere's cost of living is higher than the national average, mainly due to housing costs. These are double that of the U.S. average and may raise memory care fees, as the cost of operations might be higher here than other areas of the state.
