What to Consider About Memory Care in Atlantic County

Atlantic County is located on the New Jersey coast, where it is home to Atlantic City and Ocean City. It has a population 273,000, including 11.3 percent who are 65 and older, and it's estimated that over 180,000 of New Jersey's residents have Alzheimer's disease, which is especially prevalent among those 65 and older. To care for and treat these individuals, Atlantic County is home to four memory care facilities. 

In New Jersey, dementia treatment facilities are known as Dementia Care Homes (DCHs) and are required to provide specialized levels of care for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related ailments. These facilities are licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Health

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Atlantic County's weather is characterized by four distinct seasons, with cold, snowy winters and temperatures that regularly drop into the teens in January. July average temperatures are in the mid-80s, and residents can enjoy warm, humid summers. Those in memory care who are sensitive to the cold may be uncomfortable in the winter, and seniors who like hot weather may enjoy living here more than in other regions of the county. 
  • The cost of living in Atlantic County is slightly lower than the national average, at 97.2 compared to the base average of 100. Housing costs, at 93 compared to 100, are less, which may mean that DCH operating costs will be lower, as well, making the fees for residents more affordable than other counties. 
  • Although Social Security benefits are not subject to New Jersey income tax, withdrawals from IRAs and other retirement accounts are taxed on a sliding scale, with higher taxes for greater annual incomes. Families budgeting for a loved one's memory care may want to consider this.  
  • Atlantic County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia, such as AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, Atlantic City Campus, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
