    What to Consider About Memory Care in Bedford

    A quiet, affluent community of 22,000 with a median age of 42.8, Bedford is a suburb of Manchester, the state's largest city, and it is located only 50 miles from Boston, Massachusetts. Bedford has a senior population of 15.5 percent, some of whom have Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. The town itself has 18 facilities offering memory care and there is a total of 140 in surrounding Hillsborough County from which seniors and their families can choose. 

    • Bedford enjoys moderate New Hampshire summers with a high of 82 degrees and fairly average rainfall. Winter is an indoor season for seniors with lows reaching 13 degrees and more than twice the national average snowfall.
    • Bedford has relatively low ratings for violent and property crime, providing comfortable security for seniors in the busy southern New Hampshire area. The state's largest city, Manchester, is only five miles away and has crime ratings double those of Bedford.
    • The air quality in Bedford and Hillsborough County is rated "C" for ozone with an "A" for particulates according to the American Lung Association, exposing seniors with respiratory conditions to a moderate breathing risk. Much of southern New Hampshire have similar grades, and Bedford's proximity to the city of Manchester and several major highways may contribute.
    • New Hampshire's tax structure can help seniors make the most of their retirement income, according to Kiplinger. The state has no tax on Social Security benefits, pensions and retirement plan distributions. There is also no sales tax. There is a $1,200 exemption from the five percent tax on dividends for seniors 65 and older. Property taxes in New Hampshire are among the nation's highest, but qualifying seniors can get an adjustment.
