    What to Consider About Memory Care in Westwood

    Westwood, Massachusetts, is a small town with a population of 14,618 residents, according to the 2010 census. Of this group, 2,051 residents are between the ages of 65 and 80, and there are two memory care facilities located in Westwood to accommodate residents with Alzheimer's and dementia. Forty-two more memory care facilities are located in nearby areas.

    In Massachusetts, 130,000 residents have dementia, and there are hundreds of memory care facilities across the state to accommodate this population. In Westwood and the rest of the state, memory care facilities are officially known as "Dementia Special Care Units" (DSCUs). Some assisted living facilities in Westwood also may have special memory care wings where they specialize in caring for residents with Alzheimer's or dementia.

    • Westwood is located in a quiet suburban area of Massachusetts, and the weather is relatively comfortable for most of the year. There are an average of 201 sunny days in Westwood each year, and since it's located in New England, the area experiences four distinct seasons. The summer and spring offer pleasant weather with occasional rain; however, winters can be a bit harsh, as the area receives an average of 54 inches of snow per year, well above the U.S. average of 26 inches. Seniors may enjoy their favorite indoor activities during the winter months while enjoying the outdoors the rest of the year.
    • Massachusetts is moderately tax-friendly towards retirees. The state fully exempts Social Security retirement benefits, but they do tax other forms of retirement income. Withdrawals from retirement accounts, for instance, are fully taxed. Public pension income is not taxed, but private pension income is fully taxed.
    • The cost of living in Westwood is relatively expensive compared to other areas of Massachusetts. Based on a U.S. average of 100, Westwood's cost of living sits at 198.2, much higher than the Massachusetts average of 139, so it's one of the most expensive places to live in the state.
    • Seniors can feel safe living in Westwood since it has very low property and violent crime rates. Ranked on a scale of 1 (low) to 100 high (100). Westwood's violent crime rate is 20.4, much lower than the state average at 31.6 and the Boston-Cambridge Metro area average of 34.2. It's also safer than Boston-Cambridge and the state average in terms of property crime - Westwood's is 17.5, compared to 21.1 for the state and 34.5 for Boston-Cambridge.
