    What to Consider About Memory Care in Kent County

    Kent County is a large area with nearly 650,000 residents, about 13 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. Alzheimer's and dementia are more prevalent among the county's senior community, with nearly 14 percent of Medicare beneficiaries age 65 and over in Kent County living with these illnesses, versus the national average of 11 percent. 

    In Kent County, seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia receive memory care services in an assisted living facility. These facilities, which are officially called homes for the aged, are licensed and monitored by the Department of Human Services. Kent County has a dozen memory care facilities for families to choose from. 

    • Kent County seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security Benefits. While all other types of retirement income are taxable, there is a deduction available for those aged 65 and over. The size of the deduction varies by age, with taxpayers aged 71 and over receiving the largest deduction. Families will have to adjust their memory care budget accordingly as their loved one ages. 
    • While particle pollution levels in Kent County are fairly low, the city's ozone pollution levels are very high, according to data published by the American Lung Association. Because ozone pollution can exacerbate certain conditions like COPD, the region's air quality may be a consideration for some families researching local memory care options. 
    • Kent County residents enjoy comfortable summers with highs in the low-80s, and the region receives an average of 160 sunny days annually. Winters can be harsh, with lows near 16 and an average of 71 inches of annual snowfall, which can make local travel difficult for families visiting memory care residents. 
    • Kent County's overall cost of living is on par with the national average, and healthcare expenses are about 17 percent cheaper here than in the nation as a whole. This may make the region affordable for seniors and families with restrictive memory care budgets.
