What to Consider About Memory Care in Richmond County

Richmond County, New York, is one of the most densely populated counties in a state where there are an estimated 400,000 people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. This, coupled with the fact that almost 16 percent of residents in the county are aged 65 or over, means there's a need for local memory care facilities for seniors who may be living with dementia.

There are two Special Needs Assisted Living Residences, as memory care facilities are called in Richmond County, that provide a safe environment for seniors with cognitive impairments. They are overseen by the New York State Department of Health.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Richmond County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Richmond University Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The American Lung Association awarded Richmond County a rating of "F" for ozone pollution. This is one of the worst rated areas in the entire state of New York. Seniors who spend prolonged amounts of time outdoors could find that any existing respiratory conditions worsen.
  • Seniors living in the Richmond County area can benefit from New York State's relaxed tax laws. social security benefits, pensions paid by the state and federal government and pensions from certain public authorities are exempt from tax. This can leave more money in the budget for healthcare services.  
  • While the cost of healthcare in the Richmond County area is generally around the same as the national average, the overall cost of living is around 80 percent more expensive. This is mainly due to costs associated with housing and transportation. In Richmond, housing generally costs almost three times the national average, and transportation usually over double the nationwide averages.
