What to Consider About Memory Care in Wayne

Wayne, New Jersey, is located about 20 miles from Manhattan and has 55,072 residents, 18.3 percent of whom are 65 or older. Some of these seniors are among the 600,000 people in New Jersey living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementia-related conditions. To accommodate this population, Wayne has four memory care facilities, with another seven nearby cities such as Montville and Hawthorne.

Memory care units in In Wayne and the rest of New Jersey are often housed within assisted living facilities, with staff required to undergo additional training mandated by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Wayne

  • The cost of living in Wayne is 156.4, much more than the national average of 100, and it's also higher than the state index of 133. This is largely due to the cost of housing, which is more than twice the national average, as well as higher transportation expenses. This may stretch the budge of seniors in memory care and their family members. 
  • In Wayne, violent crime is ranked at 19.3 and property crime at 34.3, compared to national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. Crime is ranked from one to 100, with one being the lowest crime rate. Despite the lower crime rate, it's important for family members to know what security measures are in place at each facility they tour. 
  • Sperling rates the comfort level in Wayne at 51, on par with the national average. There are 210 sunny days a year here, so memory care residents can enjoy plenty of sunshine. The lows in January hit 20 degrees, and the highs in July hover near 84, so families should ask what precautions are taken to keep residents comfortable.
  • New Jersey is a moderately tax-friendly state for seniors. In Wayne and throughout the Garden State, Social Security isn't taxed, and state income taxes are low for any income from retirement accounts and pensions under $65,000.
