What to Consider About Memory Care in Rochester

The city of Rochester is the third-largest metropolitan area in New York State, a state where it's estimated that nearly 400,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. This populous urban center, which has been dubbed the "Flower City," is home to over 200,000 people, 10 percent of whom are over the age of 65 and some of whom may be cognitively impaired. 

For local seniors with dementia, Rochester has four memory care facilities, and there are an additional eight facilities outside the city limits. Memory care facilities may either be freestanding facilities or housed in adult care facilities that are certified as special needs assisted living. These facilities have self-contained units for residents with dementia and specific requirements for dementia care staff and staff training.

  • Rochester experiences hot summers with July highs in the low-80s and cold winters with lows in the upper teens. The city receives about 84 inches of snow annually, which may be a consideration for families who plan to travel to the area to visit their loved ones in memory care. 

  • The overall cost of living in Rochester is 17 percent below the national average and 46 percent below the statewide average. Health-care expenses are about 13 percent lower here than they are elsewhere in the state and the nation, which may help seniors on a budget better afford the costs of managing a chronic condition like Alzheimer's disease.

  • As in most states, New York does not tax Social Security benefits, and income from retirement accounts is deductible up to $20,000. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care.

  • The air quality in Rochester is good; the American Lung Association gave Monroe County a B for ozone pollution and an A for short-term particle pollution. This rating may make the city a good option for seniors who have respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease.
