    What to Consider About Memory Care in Springfield

    The city of Springfield is home to nearly 155,000 people, roughly 12 percent of whom are seniors. The Alzheimer's Association reports that adults age 65 and over are most likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's, an illness that affects 130,000 Bay Staters.

    Memory care facilities are senior care facilities that are specially designed to meet the needs of those with dementia. In Springfield, these facilities may be called special care residences and may either be freestanding or housed within an assisted living facility. The city is home to one memory care facility, and there are seven more located nearby. 

    • Although the cost of living in Massachusetts is generally higher than the national average, Springfield is an affordable place to live. Average living costs in this city are nearly 45 percent below the state average and 5 percent below the national average, and healthcare expenses are about 15 percent lower here than they are elsewhere in the country. This may make Springfield a good option for seniors on a tight budget.
    • The overall crime rate in Springfield is high, with the rates of both property and violent crime surpassing regional, state and national averages. This may be a consideration for families helping their loved ones transition to memory care in this region. 
    • Massachusetts is a moderately tax-friendly state for seniors. Social Security benefits and disbursements from a public pension are not taxed, but withdrawals from retirement accounts and income from private pensions are fully taxable. Additionally, the state's estate tax has just a $1 million exemption, which is among the lowest in the country.
    • The American Lung Association gave Hampden County a D for ozone pollution, an A for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution. Seniors with cardiovascular disease or respiratory illnesses may want to speak with their doctor to discuss how the city's air quality could affect their health.
