What to Consider About Memory Care in Cranston

Cranston, Rhode Island, has an estimated population of 81,202 residents, and 16.6 percent are age 65 and older. There are approximately 23,000 people in the 65+ age group with Alzheimer’s disease living in Rhode Island. To accommodate Cranston residents with this disease or another type of dementia, there is one memory care facility in the city and 75 in surrounding areas, such as Warwick and Providence.

In the state of Rhode Island, including Cranston, assisted living residences (ALRs) are regulated by the Department of Health’s Offices of Residences Regulation. ALRs that have units dedicated to Alzheimer’s and dementia care are called Special Care Units (SCUs) and are subject to stringent requirements that encompass everything from staff training to fire safety and medication services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Cranston

  • Family members of seniors in memory care can enjoy peace of mind when it comes to safety. Cranston has a violent crime rate of only 11.7, while the United States comes in at an average of 31.1. Property crime is lower as well at 34.7; the national average is 38.1.
  • The cost of living in Cranston ranks at 118.2, as compared to the U.S. average of 100. Housing is the biggest factor, so relatives handling finances for loved ones in memory care may find facility costs are higher than in less expensive cities, such as Warwick, where the living cost is a bit lower.
