Delaware is overlooked when it comes to the upper northeast part of the United States. It is unfortunate because Delaware has many positives going for it. Delaware dementia care facilities are of high standard, yet much more affordable compared to the other New England states of New York, Connecticut, Vermont and New Jersey.

Delaware’s healthcare ranks among the best, the scenery remains beautiful but slightly more rural, and there is nearby access to the major cities of New York City and Philadelphia, as well as Baltimore and Washington, D.C., where family or other loved ones may reside.
Cost of Memory Care Facilities in Delaware
Delaware is a rarity among the upper northeast as just about every other state in the area is statistically ever expensive for dementia care. The only other states that are priced close to Delaware Alzheimer’s care homes are Rhode Island and Vermont, but they are pricier.

Delaware is a small state so sometimes the selection of dementia care homes is limited, though quality never suffers. The entire state has less than one million in population, and its biggest city, Wilmington, only houses a little under 71,000. Consequently, sometimes it is hard to find the appropriate memory care facility so it bodes well to do a little extra research and ask around.
The cities of Dover, Newark and Middletown are good places to begin. Along with Wilmington, these are bigger cities with the best selection of Alzheimer’s care facilities. Ask about Medicare, as some dementia care services may be covered partially or in their entirety depending on the provider.

Regardless of the facility, dedicated Alzheimer’s care homes in Delaware provide the same trademark health services as the rest of the northeast. Some of the best doctors and nurses live and work in this part of the U.S., so service is second to none.
