What to Consider About Memory Care in East Meadow

Around 400,000 residents of New York are living with Alzheimer's disease, and there are 10 Centers of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease (CEADs) across the state providing care for these people. East Meadow, where almost 19 percent of the population of 38,000 is aged 65 and over, is within 35 miles of three of these centers. There are also six memory care facilities in the city and surrounding communities to accommodate people with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia.

Dementia care facilities in the state are a type of Special Needs Assisted Living Residence (SNARL) and are licensed by the Department of Health. These facilities must meet additional staffing and building requirements. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in East Meadow

  • East Meadow's overall crime rate is lower than 60 percent of New York's other cities and towns. The violent crime rate is just 0.65 crimes per 1,000 residents, almost three points lower than the state average of 3.57. The property crime rate is 8.15, seven points lower than the New York average. This may be reassuring for families who are concerned about the safety of loved ones.
  • Social Security benefits are tax-exempt in New York. Other types of retirement income, including pensions and funds from retirement accounts, are subject to income tax, but there is a large deduction available for seniors. This may allow seniors and their families to put more money in their memory care budget.
  • The East Meadow area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Nassau University Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The Sperling cost of living index rates the cost of living in East Meadow as 171, 71 points higher than the national average. Healthcare costs in the community are equal to the national average, but other expenses are higher, which could mean less money available for memory care.
