    What to Consider About Memory Care in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is home to 1,580,863 people, making it the sixth most populous city in the United States. Approximately 13 percent of the population are seniors, and those with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia have access to six memory care facilities in the city of brotherly love. There are another 16 facilities nearby in Bala Cynwyd, Cherry Hill, Wynnewood, Haverford, Wyndmoor, Lafayette Hill, Bryn Mawr, Woodbury and Jenkin Town.

    Pennsylvania offers two types of memory care facilities. Assisted living residences, which are licensed by the Department of Aging, provide nursing home care and other services to four or more adults. Personal care homes, which are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, also house four or more residents but cannot provide nursing home care. Both types may operate in one building under a dual license.

    • Philadelphia is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Roxborough Memorial Hospital, as well as the Mercy Philadelphia Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Philadelphia’s violent crime rates are three times the national average, and property crime rates are 1.3 times the national average. When choosing a memory care facility, it is a good idea to do research on the surrounding neighborhood and inquire about the facility’s security features.
    • Philadelphia residents enjoy housing costs that are 20 percent lower than the US average. In addition, pension income for seniors 60 years of age or older is exempt from taxes, as is income from Social Security, 401(k) accounts, IRAs, or other retirement accounts. This may help loved ones set aside additional money for memory care.
    • On a scale from one to 100, where 100 indicates the most comfortable climate, Philadelphia scores a 57 on the Sperling Comfort Index. This city is cloudy and rainy for much of the year and has cold, snowy winters. Ask the staff of your chosen memory care facility how they ensure that residents will not wander out in harsh weather.
