What to Consider About Memory Care in Smithfield

The town of Smithfield is home to nearly 22,000 residents and has a senior community that makes up nearly 20 percent of the population. According to the Alzheimer's Association, as many as one in 10 of these seniors may be living with Alzheimer's disease. In Rhode Island alone, 23,000 seniors are living with Alzheimer's.

To accommodate local seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia, the Smithfield area has four memory care facilities. Two of these facilities are in Smithfield proper, and the other two are located in the nearby city of Lincoln. In most cases, memory care is provided in F1-M1 assisted living residences that have obtained dementia care licensure and have Alzheimer's dementia special care units.

  • Overall living costs in Smithfield are higher than state and national averages, which may result in higher memory care expenses. However, healthcare costs are lower here than in the country as a whole, which may help seniors and families afford the costs associated with managing chronic conditions like Alzheimer's disease. 
  • Safety in Smithfield is rated 60 out of 100, meaning that the city is safer than 60 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes, and only 49 percent of Rhode Island cities have lower crime rates than Smithfield. When compared to similarly sized cities across the nation, Smithfeld's crime rate is notably lower than average. This may appeal to families researching memory care in the area.
  • Any Social Security benefits that are subject to federal income tax are also subject to state income tax in Rhode Island, and all other types of retirement income are fully taxable. This may affect how much money can be put towards memory care in Smithfield. 
  • According to the American Lung Association, ozone pollution levels in Providence County are relatively high, but 24-hour particle pollution levels are fair. Because pollutants can exacerbate certain medical conditions, Smithfield's air quality may be a consideration for families researching local memory care options.
