What to Consider About Memory Care in West Orange

West Orange, New Jersey, is in Essex County, which has one of the largest over-60 populations in the state. According to estimates, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias affect as many as 1,095 residents or about 13 percent of the city's 8,400 senior citizens. Families who are seeking memory care for their loved one can choose from one dozen facilities located in West Orange and surrounding communities.

To comply with Department of Health regulations, assisted living residences and comprehensive personal care homes that offer such services must have written policies, admissions criteria and specialized staff training programs specific to dementia care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in West Orange

  • The cost of living in West Orange is 50 percent higher than the national average. Residents pay most of the difference in higher housing and transportation costs. However, they also enjoy well-funded community services thanks to a strong tax base. Despite the higher cost of living, dementia patients pay two percent less for health care than residents in other parts of the country.
  • Thanks to its central location, West Orange is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as the Saint Barnabas Medical Center, the Atlantic Neuroscience Institute and the Cognitive and Research Center of New Jersey, in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses.
  •  Residents of West Orange and northern New Jersey must endure variable weather. The area receives as much snow as the average U.S. city and slightly more rain. January lows hover around 21 degrees, yet July highs soar above 85.
  • West Orange is a safe community overall. The area has a slightly higher rate of violent crimes compared to the U.S. average. On the other hand, the rate of property crimes is well below the national average. To protect residents from possible threats and wandering, memory care facilities must have access controls and other security systems.
