    What to Consider About Memory Care in Bethlehem

    The city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has a population of nearly 76,000 people, and more than 15 percent of residents are age 65 and over. According to the Alzheimer's Association, about 280,000 Pennsylvania seniors have Alzheimer's disease. To support local seniors with dementia, the area has 14 memory care facilities, with two in Bethlehem and another dozen in the surrounding region.

    In addition to providing memory care facilities, the Bethlehem area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Luke's University Hospital. The St. Luke's Memory Disorder Center specializes in evaluating, diagnosing and treating seniors with dementia.

    • While the overall cost of living in Bethlehem is a little lower than the nationwide average, healthcare expenses are about 18 percent higher here than the U.S. average. This may make the cost of managing a chronic condition, like dementia, a challenge for seniors and families on a tight budget.
    • The property crime rate in Bethlehem is roughly on par with the national average, and the violent crime rate is lower than regional, state, and national averages, which may provide peace of mind for families. On a 100-point scale, with a higher score indicating more crime, the city receives a 38.7 for property crime, compared to the national average of 38.1, and a 24.1 for violent crime, versus the U.S. average of 31.1.
    • Northampton County received an F for ozone pollution and a C for short-term particle pollution from the American Lung Association. The region's relatively poor air quality may be a consideration for families who are moving their senior loved one to memory care in Bethlehem. 
    • Pennsylvania does not impose an income tax, meaning that seniors hang on to the entirety of their Social Security income, pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts.
