In Pennsylvania, it's estimated that 280,000 seniors have Alzheimer's disease, an illness that affects as many as one in 10 people age 65 and over. In Haverford, seniors make up more than 17 percent of the 49,000-person population.

In Haverford, as in all of the state, memory care may be provided in a dedicated memory care facility or in assisted living facilities with special care units. Assisted living facilities that provide dementia care must meet special state requirements to ensure proper care for residents.
- The cost of living in Haverford is almost double the country's overall cost of living. While this is mainly due to the high cost of housing, families can expect medical expenses to be about 15 percent more than the national median. This can make it challenging for seniors with tight budgets to manage the healthcare costs associated with chronic conditions like dementia.
Summers in Haverford are hot with July temperatures in the upper-80s, and winters are cold with January lows in the mid-20s. The city receives just 16 inches of annual snowfall, compared to the national average of 26 inches, which may make the city an attractive option for families who travel year-round to visit loved ones in memory care.
- Haverford seniors are not taxed on their Social Security benefits or income they draw from retirement accounts, and those over the age of 60 do not pay state income tax on pension income. The state's retirement-friendly tax laws may allow for more money in the memory care budget.
- The American Lung Association gave Delaware County an F for ozone pollution and a B for short-term particle pollution. Poor air quality may negatively affect seniors with respiratory conditions or cardiovascular disease, so families may wish to speak to their loved ones' doctor to find out if Haverford's air quality is a concern.
