What to Consider About Memory Care in Passaic County

Passaic County, New Jersey, is located in the northern part of the state and considered part of the New York City metro area. Out of the county's population of 511,000, 14% are residents aged 65 and older, a demographic where Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia are particularly prevalent. Passaic County itself estimates that 13 percent of its seniors have been diagnosed with a memory care condition. To treat and care for these individuals, Passaic County is home to six memory care facilities. 

Dementia care facilities in New Jersey are known as Dementia Care Homes        (DCHs) and are required by state statute to provide graduated levels of care for residents according to the severity of their memory care condition. These facilities are licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Health

  • Passaic County's weather is characterized by four distinct seasons. Winters are cold and snowy with temperatures that regularly drop into the teens in January. July average temperatures are in the mid-80s, warm and humid. Seniors who dislike hot weather may enjoy living here more than in other regions of the county. 
  • Seniors in memory care may be affected by the cost of living in Passaic  County. With housing costs at 174 compared to the U.S. average of 100, operating costs of DCHs may increase and fees may go up accordingly. The overall cost of living is 137, compared to 100. Seniors and a family on tight budget may want to compare costs here with other counties in New Jersey. 
  • Social Security benefits are not subject to New Jersey income tax, but withdrawals from IRAs and other retirement accounts are taxed as income on a tiered scale. When budgeting for memory care, families may want to consider how much to withdraw annually from their loved one's IRA.  
  • Passaic County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia, such as St. Mary's General Hospital and St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
