What to Consider About Memory Care in Hillsborough
Hillsborough Township is a township in Somerset County, in northwestern New Jersey, and it has a population of about 40,000 people, 12 percent of whom are 65 and over. Some of these seniors may be one of the 210,000 New Jersey residents projected to develop Alzheimer's by 2025, according to the Somerset County Needs Assessment.
The New Jersey Alzheimer's Association publishes a schedule of family support groups, including those closest to Hillsborough families. Within the township, there are also two memory care facilities to support residents with Alzheimer's and other dementias, and four more facilities are located in nearby communities. In Hillsborough and throughout the state, memory care services are provided in assisted living facilities, but they can also be housed in separate facilities.
- Social Security benefits are not taxed in Hillsborough or elsewhere in New Jersey. Although other types of retirement income are taxable, seniors aged 62 and over typically qualify for a large deduction. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care.
- Overall, living costs in the city are about 58 percent higher than the national average, meaning this city is a fairly expensive place to live. Healthcare expenses are slightly below state and national averages, so families managing the budgets of loved ones in memory care may save a little on healthcare costs compared to some other U.S. cities.
- On a 100-point crime scale, Hillsborough is rated at about half the national averages for both property and violent crimes. This may provide peace of mind for families with loved ones in memory care here.
- In Hillsborough, residents get about nine more inches of rain and four more inches of snow than the national average, which could present challenges for family and spouses with mobility issues visiting residents in memory care.
