What to Consider About Memory Care in Providence

Rhode Island may be the smallest state in the U.S., but within the capital Providence there is a big community of institutions doing important Alzheimer's disease and dementia research. These include Butler Hospital and, in conjunction with renowned Brown University, Rhode Island Hospital.

In the City of Providence there are 38 senior communities offering memory care, and 143 in surrounding Providence County. It is a young and vibrant city, where those 65 and over are only 9.6 percent of the city's population. The median age in Providence is just under 30, much lower than the current national median of nearly 40.

The government of Rhode Island has developed a state plan to address Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders including standardizing terminology to describe memory care facilities and the services they offer and provide for accreditation. The state is also aiming at the education of facility care providers and the dissemination of local research findings for the greater good.

  • The weather in coastal Providence has warm, but not oppressive, summers and fairly cold winters which can limit outdoor activities for seniors to three seasons. The local temperature varies from a high of 80F in the summer to a low of 20F in the winter, with 10 inches more snow and rain per year than the national average.
  • The city of Providence has significantly more property and violent crime than the national average, making it necessary for seniors to be careful when going out for an evening and take precautions to protect their homes.
  • Kiplinger rates Rhode Island not tax-friendly and notes that the state is trying to pull back from its extensive taxation of retirees. Going beyond its tax-intensive neighbor to the north, Massachusetts, Rhode Island even taxes Social Security benefits, though it has now increased the income threshold in that area. The maximum tax rate of 9.9 percent has also been lowered to 5.99 percent.
  • For 2018, Providence received a D in air quality from the American Lung Association. Although the organization noted a few years ago that conditions were improving, it still expressed concern that residents of Rhode Island, especially seniors, are at significant risk of respiratory problems.
