    What to Consider About Memory Care in Trenton

    Trenton is the capital city of New Jersey, a state where it's estimated that 180,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is the leading cause of dementia and is most often diagnosed in older adults over the age of 65. In Trenton, those who are 65 and over comprise a little more than 9 percent of the 85,000-person population.

    There is one memory care facility in Trenton and four facilities in the nearby cities of Princeton, Pennington and Lawrenceville. These facilities are located within assisted living facilities that have established programs for those with dementia.

    • While Social Security benefits are not taxed in New Jersey, other types of retirement income are subject to state income tax. Seniors over the age of 62 are eligible for a sizable deduction, however, which may allow more money in the memory care budget.
    • The American Lung Association gave Mercer County an F for ozone pollution and an A for short-term particle pollution. Because seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease may experience worsening conditions due to ozone pollution, families may want to speak to their loved one's doctor to determine how Trenton's air quality could affect them. 
    • Overall living expenses in Trenton are about 15 percent lower than the U.S. median, and healthcare expenses are about 5 percent less here than they are in the nation as a whole. This may appeal to families and seniors with restrictive memory care budgets.
    • Summers in Trenton are hot and humid with highs in the mid-80s, and winters are cold with lows in the mid-20s. The area receives 21 inches of snow annually, which is several inches less than the national median of 26 inches, which may appeal to families who drive locally to visit their loved ones in memory care in Trenton.
