    What to Consider About Memory Care in Brooklyn

    Over 400,000 people in the state of New York have Alzheimer’s disease and some live in Brooklyn, a borough of New York City with a population of over 2.6 million. About 13 percent (338,000 people) of that large population is over the age of 65, the stage of life where people can develop dementia.

    There are four memory care facilities within Brooklyn and eight more nearby. These facilities are called Special Needs Assisted Living Residences in New York and are regulated by the New York Department of Health. Since the state does not tax social security benefits, care givers and loved ones can use entire checks to help pay for fees.

    • Brooklyn has an incredibly high cost of living. It is more than double the national and state averages. The largest cost is housing. When the national average for housing is 100, Brooklyn’s cost of housing is 418. That’s four times more than the national average. Cost of transportation, including gas and public transport, is more than double the national average. The high cost of living can greatly affect memory care facility fees.
    • Crime in Brooklyn sits nearly in the middle between low and high crime. With one as low crime and 100 as high crime, Brooklyn’s violent crime is 56 and property crime is 57. This is higher than both national and New York City averages.
    • Since Brooklyn is in the northeast, the city does see winter weather. The area gets an average of 24 inches of snow each year. Bad weather can affect travel during an emergency. However, Brooklyn does see 226 sunny days a year. This is higher than the national average at 205. 
    • Brooklyn is home to four medical facilities that specialize in brain health and dementia care. Those hospitals are Mount Sinai Brooklyn, The Brooklyn Hospital Center, Maimonides Medical Center and New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. There are several other hospitals in the area in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
