What to Consider About Memory Care in Lincoln
In Lincoln, Rhode Island, seniors aged 65 and older represent 18 percent of the town's 21,900 residents. Although 6,000 adults in the surrounding county are already living with Alzheimer's disease, this number is projected to increase by 17 percent in the coming years. As their symptoms progress, many dementia patients require continuous supervision.
To meet the needs of this population, the Lincoln area is home to approximately 20 memory care facilities, including two located in town. All facilities that manage Alzheimer's dementia special care units are licensed by the Rhode Island Department of Health and must follow strict staffing and training standards.
- Due to its coastal location, the local climate can be harsh, especially for older adults. Lincoln receives more precipitation than most U.S. cities, and temperatures vary from 18 degrees in the winter to 82 degrees in the summer. These combined conditions earned the city a comfort score of 38, which is 16 points lower than the national average.
- Lincoln is slightly safer than an average city. Local families experience fewer property crimes and less violence than residents of the Providence-Warwick metropolitan area. Additionally, memory care facilities typically have robust security features and dedicated staff members who are responsible for residents' safety.
- The cost of living in Lincoln is 20 percent higher than the state average and 30 percent above the national average. While utilities, transportation and housing are moderately more expensive, residents pay 17 percent less for healthcare than seniors in other parts of the country. For some families, this may partially offset the cost of memory care and personal assistance.
