    What to Consider About Memory Care in Waltham

    Waltham is a safe, family-friendly suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, a state with over 130,000 residents diagnosed as having Alzheimer's Disease or dementia. Many of Waltham's seniors, 13 percent of the town's population of 63,000, may comprise part of this number. To care for Waltham's dementia patients, there are over 20 memory care facilities in the city, with a further 60 in the greater Boston area. These places are regulated and licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

    Some assisted living facilities in Waltham have separate memory care wings, called  “Special Care Residence” (SCR). Alzheimer's-only treatment centers, referred to as “Dementia Special Care Units” (DSCUs). All memory care facilities, whether memory-care only or part of a larger assisted living community, are regulated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, which stipulates security measures for residents, and specific training for memory care. 

    • Weather in Waltham means cold winters with plenty of snow. Seniors in memory care with certain health conditions may be uncomfortable. Summers are warm and not overly hot, which may bring relief to those sensitive to high heat. 
    • Massachusetts does not levy a state income tax on Social Security income. This may make budgeting for memory care easier for residents and their families. 
    • Waltham, as part of the greater Boston metro area, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Massachusetts General Hospital - Boston and Boston Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Waltham's cost of living is higher than the national average. Housing, at over three times the rest of the U.S., may increase operating costs for memory care facilities, something seniors and their families may need to consider.
