What to Consider About Memory Care In North Tonawanda

Memory care communities in North Tonawanda follow the New York Department of Health’s rules for staffing, the scope of services they provide and dementia-specific provisions. The department monitors compliance through routine inspections and an annual licensing process. It also investigates consumer complaints it receives through its Adult Care Facility Centralized Complaint Intake Program.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in North Tonawanda

 

  • DeGraff Medical Park, which sits within North Tonawanda, serves as part of the region’s largest healthcare provider and features a 24-hour emergency department, along with a multidisciplinary team of physicians and practitioners. It has a full range of outpatient services, including imaging services, rehabilitative therapies and cardiac care. While it doesn’t have a neurology department, many memory care facilities support access to specialized care through visiting physicians and staff nurses.

 

  • Niagara County, where North Tonawanda sits, ranks among the worst in the state for health outcomes and factors contributing to residents’ well-being. Among the state’s 62 surveyed counties, it ranks 51st for variables such as the comparatively low life expectancy of 77.3 years and the low flu vaccination rate among Medicare beneficiaries of 42% compared to 53% statewide. While its physician-to-resident ratio ranks among the lowest in the state and nation at 1:2,480, many memory care communities provide medical concierge services and on-site medical support to avoid gaps in care.

 

  • Housing prices in North Tonawanda surpass national norms by about 11% and utility costs run 4% higher than in a typical U.S. city, contributing to an overall cost of living that exceeds the national average by nearly 2%. While this may impact memory care costs, residents spend about 26% less on health care here than in the nation as a whole, promoting affordability for those with fixed incomes.

 

  • Seniors in North Tonawanda can claim a deduction of up to $20,000 to reduce what they owe on private pension income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, and the state doesn’t impose income taxes on public pension income or Social Security benefits. This leaves more money in seniors’ pockets that can be put toward local memory care costs.

 

  • North Tonawanda ranks as safer than just 36% of U.S. communities and 25% of cities across New York. However, in comparison only to communities with similar population sizes, the crime rate falls among the lowest, with the city reporting just 13 illegal incidents per 1,000 people annually, appealing to those seeking memory care in safe environments.

Paying for Memory Care in North Tonawanda

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

North Tonawanda seniors pay a baseline monthly rate of $5,926 for memory care.
