What to Consider About Memory Care in Gloucester County

Gloucester County, New Jersey, has a rich agricultural history dating back to 100 years before the American Revolution and is now part of the Philadelphia metro area. The county now has a population of 291,000, 42,000 of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. This is an age group that is vulnerable to memory conditions, including Alzheimer's disease. Thirteen percent of Gloucester County's seniors have been diagnosed with a form of dementia. To treat these individuals and provide around-the-clock care, Gloucester County is home to 9 memory care facilities. 

In New Jersey, dementia treatment facilities are known as Dementia Care Homes. State regulations require each home to provide specialized levels of care for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. DCHs are licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Health

  • Social Security income in New Jersey is not taxed by the state, although withdrawals from retirement accounts, including IRAs, are taxed. Families budgeting for a loved one's memory care may want to consider how much they withdraw each year from a loved one's retirement account, as this is taxed on a sliding scale. 
  • Weather in Gloucester County is characterized by cold, snowy winters and mild, humid summers. July highs rarely reach over the high 80s, while January lows may dip into the low 20s. Seniors in memory care who are sensitive to high heat may enjoy living here, although those with health conditions affected by cold weather may be uncomfortable.
