What to Consider About Memory Care in Salem

Roughly 24,000 seniors in New Hampshire have Alzheimer's, a disease that is primarily diagnosed in seniors aged 65 and over. Some of these seniors with Alzheimer's may be a part of Salem's own senior community, which makes up over 17 percent of the city's population of 29,000 people. 

Local seniors with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia may reside in one of the two memory care facilities in Salem. Families looking for other options can find nearly a dozen more memory care facilities in nearby cities like Haverhill and North Chelmsford. In Salem, as in all of New Hampshire, memory care services may be offered in assisted living facilities that have wandering prevention systems.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Salem

  • The cost of living in Salem is high, even by New Hampshire's standards. Overall, living costs are about 30 percent higher than the U.S. average and 15 percent higher than the state average. This high cost of living may increase the cost of memory care. Healthcare expenses are slightly lower here than in the country as a whole, however, which may offset memory care-related expenses.
  • While ozone pollution levels in Rockingham County are fairly high, short-term particle pollution levels are low, and the county received a passing score for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. Because ozone pollution can worsen certain medical conditions, Salem's air quality may be a consideration for some families researching memory care here.
  • New Hampshire does not have a state sales tax or a state income tax, which may allow for more money in the memory care budget in Salem. The state does have a low tax for dividends and interest, so seniors with investment income may pay some state taxes.
  • In Salem, summers are warm and humid, and winters are chilly and snowy. Year-round temperatures range between 18 degrees and 83 degrees, and the city gets almost 60 inches of annual snowfall. This may affect seasonal travel for families visiting their loved ones in memory care in this city. 

Paying for Memory Care in Salem
