What to Consider About Memory Care in Easton

In Pennsylvania, including Easton, the Office of Long-Term Living’s Bureau of Human Services Licensing monitors memory care providers through facility licensing, complaints investigation and regulatory enforcement. The bureau oversees dementia care neighborhoods in both assisted living facilities and personal care homes.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Easton

 

  • Easton’s seniors who live alone and own their homes have higher living costs than the national average. However, Medical Assistance — Pennsylvania’s Medicaid program — may indirectly cover partial memory care costs through the Community HealthChoices managed care waiver program.

 

  • Although health care costs in Easton are around 18.1% higher than the national average, some 93.5% of the local population has health coverage, such as Medicare or VA plans. Furthermore, the area has more doctors per capita than in many places across the country, with 226 physicians per 100,000 people in Easton compared with the U.S. average of 210.

 

  • The region has good air quality for most of the year, with a couple of months dipping to moderate. Based on the concentration of PM2.5, air quality ratings in Easton rarely exceed WHO recommendations by more than three times.  

 

 

  • Northampton County joined AARP’s Age-Friendly Network in 2018, showing its longstanding commitment to becoming more comfortable for all residents. Action plan highlights include improved affordable housing options and social inclusion initiatives.

 

  • The Lehigh Valley region is a Dementia-Friendly Community. This means that various sectors of the community, such as local government agencies, private businesses, transportation operators and health care providers, work together to improve accessibility and support for people with dementia.

 

  • Easton has lower-than-average crime rates, with violent crime 4.4 points lower than the national median and property crime prevalence 3.9 points lower than the national average. Moreover, memory care communities have extra security and safety features, such as keypad entrances, 24/7 on-site staff, pendant alarms and enclosed grounds.

Paying for Memory Care in Easton

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates. No national database currently tracks memory care costs in the United States, so we've estimated the monthly memory care costs listed below by adding 25% to the rates listed in Genworth's 2021 Cost of Care Survey.

Monthly memory care fees in Easton stand at about $5,980.

Similarly, seniors who receive medical and rehabilitation services from visiting home health care aides pay $737 less than those in memory care units.
