    What to Consider About Memory Care in Shelburne

    Shelburne, a small town in Chittenden County, Vermont, is home to a little more than 7,000 residents. More than 20 percent of its population is made up of seniors aged 65 or older, many of whom are living with a dementia-related impairment, such as Alzheimer's Disease or Huntington's Disease, which affects an estimated 13,000 seniors across Vermont. 

    There are four memory care facilities in the Shelburne area that provide care and support to seniors living with dementia. These facilities, officially known as dementia care units, are typically housed within assisted living residences. The Vermont Department of Licensing and Protection regulates and monitors all dementia care units and assisted living residences in the state.

    • According to the American Lung Association, Shelburne and Crittenden County have impeccable air quality. Both ozone and particle pollution levels are low and the air quality in the area has been assigned a passing grade. That means that breathing the air in the area poses little to no risk to seniors or other vulnerable residents.
    • The Shelburne area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as the University of Vermont Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Shelburne is more than 20 percent higher than the countrywide average with housing and utilities being the biggest factors in this calculation. This is likely to affect the cost of memory care in the area, particularly when it comes to room and board charges.
    • The Shelburne area gets more than three times the annual snowfall of the average U.S. city and has average January low temperatures as cold as 10 degrees. It's important to discuss security with memory care facilities while touring them to make sure that measures are in place to prevent residents from wandering outside unsupervised, particularly during heavy snowfall and cold weather.
