    What to Consider About Memory Care in Wayland

    Wayland is located in the central region of Massachusetts and has a population of nearly 14,000 residents. Almost 18 percent of residents are aged 65 and over, and some are among the state's 130,000 seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

    The Wayland region has more than a dozen memory care facilities, with three in Wayland proper and 10 more nearby. These facilities are officially called special care residences and generally share campuses with assisted living facilities. They are certified and regulated by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs.

    • The air quality in Wayland is fair, with Middlesex County receiving a B for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association and ranking 47 out of 227 metropolitan areas for high ozone days. This may be beneficial for seniors with certain respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses.
    • The overall cost of living in Wayland is nearly double the national average, primarily because of the high cost of housing and utilities in this city. While this may drive up the cost of memory care, the city's relatively low memory care costs may help to offset the expense.
    • Massachusetts does not impose a state income tax on Social Security benefits or disbursements from public pensions, but income from retirement accounts and private pensions are fully taxable. This may affect how much money can be put toward memory care in Wayland. 
    • Wayland is rated 98 out of 100 for safety, meaning that it is safer than 98 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes. Additionally, when compared to other cities with similar population sizes, Wayland's crime rate was ranked among the lowest. This may provide peace of mind for families with loved ones in memory care.
