    What to Consider About Memory Care in Media

    Media, which is located in southeastern Pennsylvania in Delaware County, is home to over 5,000 people and a large senior community that makes up more than 17 percent of the population. In Pennsylvania, it's estimated that 280,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease, an illness that the Alzheimer's Association reports is found in as many as one in 10 people aged 65 and over.

    There are three memory care facilities in Media and five more located in nearby cities.  In Pennsylvania, memory care is generally provided within assisted living facilities that have special care units and meet special state requirements.

    • Poor air quality can negatively affect seniors with respiratory conditions or cardiovascular diseases, which may be a deciding factor for families who are considering memory care in Media. The American Lung Association gave Delaware County an "F" for ozone pollution and a "B" for short-term particle pollution. 
    • Seniors who are age 60 and over do not pay state income tax on income from retirement accounts and those over 59.5 don't pay state income tax on disbursements from public pensions. Additionally, Social Security benefits are not taxed in Pennsylvania, which may leave more money in the budget for memory care expenses in Media. 
    • Media is a relatively expensive city to live in, which may be a concern for families with limited memory care budgets. Overall living expenses are more than 30 percent higher than the national average, and healthcare expenses are about 15 percent higher than in the country as a whole. 
    • The crime rate in Media is lower than 39 percent of U.S. cities of all population sizes and lower than 28 percent of other Pennsylvania cities. When the city is compared to U.S. cities with similar population sizes, Media's crime rate is average. For added peace of mind, families may wish to consult with the administrative staff regarding the safety measures taken at their loved one's memory care facility.
