What to Consider About Memory Care in Cresskill
The borough of Cresskill, which is located in Bergen County, New Jersey, has a large senior community that makes up almost 16 percent of the population of nearly 9,000 residents, and according to the Alzheimer's Association, as many as one in 10 of those seniors may have Alzheimer's disease. In Bergen County alone, more than 12 percent of Medicare beneficiaries age 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia.
There are over two dozen memory care facilities in the Cresskill region, with two in Cresskill proper and 23 more in nearby cities. While some memory care facilities are freestanding, most are located within assisted living facilities.
- According to the American Lung Association, ozone pollution levels in Bergen County are high, but short-term particle pollution levels are relatively low. Families whose senior loved one has a condition that is worsened by pollution may want to consider the air quality in Cresskill as they research local memory care options.
- Cresskill's overall cost of living is nearly double the national average, which may result in higher memory care expenses. However, healthcare is relatively affordable in this city compared to the national median, which may provide cost savings for seniors with chronic conditions like dementia.
- In Cresskill, summers are hot and humid with highs in the mid-80s, and winters are chilly with lows in the mid-20s. Families may want to ensure that the memory care facility they choose for their loved one takes precautions to keep residents safe and comfortable during extreme seasonal weather.
- In New Jersey, Social Security income is not taxed at the state level, and seniors whose annual income from retirement savings accounts and pensions is below $65,000 pay relatively little in state income taxes. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care in Cresskill.
