What to Consider About Memory Care in Syracuse

The city of Syracuse, which is situated in the heart of New York, has a senior community that accounts for about 12 percent of the 143,000-person population. According to the Alzheimer's Association, about 400,000 New Yorkers have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, which is the most common cause of dementia. This number is expected to increase by 15 percent in the coming years.

To care for local seniors with dementia, the Syracuse area has five memory care facilities. Three of these facilities are in Syracuse proper, and the other two are located in the nearby cities of Liverpool and Fayetteville. These facilities are generally situated within assisted living residences that are certified as special needs assisted living facilities by New York’s Department of Health.

  • Syracuse has a relatively high crime rate. More than 97 percent of New York cities have a lower crime rate than Syracuse, and its violent crime rate, in particular, is among the highest in the nation. Memory care facilities ensure residents' safety by employing the use of security devices like surveillance cameras, high-security locks and alarm systems.
  • New York does not tax Social Security benefits, and the state provides seniors with a sizable deduction of up to $20,000 on other types of retirement income. This may leave more money in the budget for memory care services.
  • The cost of living in Syracuse is about 17 percent lower than the national average and 46 percent lower than the state average, and medical care in this city is slightly lower than the state and national median. This may make it an attractive option for seniors on a tight budget. 
  • Summers in Syracuse are warm and muggy, with July highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. January is the coldest month of the year when highs are around 31 and the lows are in the teens. Families may want to ensure that the memory care facility they choose for their loved one takes strides to prevent wandering in dangerously cold temperatures.
