What to Consider About Memory Care in Buffalo

Over 55,000 residents of Western New York have dementia. This number includes some of the 31,000 seniors living in Buffalo. To serve local seniors with Alzheimer'disease or other dementia diseases, there is one memory care facility within the city limits with several more in nearby Cheektowago and Williamsville.

In NY, senior facilities designed for memory care are called Special Needs Assisted Living Residences. Buffalo and the rest of New York take memory care very seriously with help from the EDGE project. This web-based program teaches care givers how to provide quality care to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

  • Buffalo has a low cost of living when compared to the rest of the New York and the United States as a whole. Housing offers the greatest savings which can benefit families paying for memory care in the city since residences can keep rates lower. The highest costs in the city are groceries and utilities, but they are still below state and national averages.
  • Crime in Buffalo is very high. The city has a violent crime rating of 94 with 100 as the highest crime level. Property crime is lower but still pretty high at 64.  Families of seniors living in memory care facilities may want to inquire about policies and procedures for keeping residents safe both in the facility and out on excursions.
  • New York does not tax pensions or social security benefits. All money can go toward care and residence fees. Many seniors over 59 1/2 with taxable income can receive a pension exclusion up to $20,000.
  • Buffalo is home to three medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. Those options are Mercy Hospital of BuffaloSisters of Charity Hospital and Erie County Medical Center.
