    Memory care units in Smithtown and throughout New York are classified as adult care facilities (ACFs) by the New York State Department of Health.  ACFs in New York use the state's EDGE program to give employees in dementia care settings various tools to contribute quality care. 

    • Smithtown is considered safer than two-thirds of all communities across the United States.
