    What to Consider About Memory Care in West Chester

    The borough of West Chester lies along the Delaware River near the New Jersey border in the state of Pennsylvania, a state where at least 280,000 people are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, according to the Alzheimer's Association. About 20,000 people live in West Chester, and nearly 9 percent are over the age of 65. To support local seniors who have Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, West Chester has four memory care facilities, and there are an additional 20 facilities in nearby cities like Downingtown and Exton. 

    In West Chester, facilities are officially referred to as "special care units," or SCUs. They are located within their own secured areas within personal care homes or assisted living residences.

    • The overall cost of living in West Chester is about 40 percent higher than the national median. This is predominantly due to the high cost of real estate in the area, which may impact the cost of room and board at local memory care facilities. Healthcare expenses are about 15 percent higher than the national average, which may make it difficult for seniors to afford care for chronic conditions like dementia.
    • Crime is rated on a scale of one to 100, with one representing the lowest level of crime. Violent crime in West Chester is rated 29.5, compared to the national average of 31.1, and property crime is rated 35.8, compared to the nationwide median of 38.1. This may provide peace of mind for families who are helping loved ones relocate to memory care in this city. 
    • Summers in West Chester are hot and humid with highs in the mid-80s, which may be a consideration for seniors who enjoy being outside but are sensitive to heat. Winters are very cold with lows in the mid-20s and the area receives about 23 inches of snow annually. 
    • West Chester residents who are age 60 and over do not pay income tax on money the draw from retirement accounts, and those over 59.5 don't pay income tax on income they receive from public pensions. Additionally, Social Security benefits are not taxed in the state, which may let seniors budget more money toward memory care expenses.
