    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hamden

    Hamden is known as The Land of the Sleeping Giant and seniors who enjoy leaf peeping can view beautiful foliage at Sleeping Giant State Park and other spots in the town. Hamden is home to around 61,000 residents and over 15 percent are aged 65 and older.

    Seniors in Hamden who are mostly independent but need some help with daily activities can find care in one of the area's 16 assisted living facilities. Connecticut's Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section licenses and monitors assisted living facilities in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hamden

    • Hamden has cold winters, with an average low temperature in January of 20 degrees. The town also gets 31 inches of snow each year, 5 inches more than the national average, which may keep seniors inside during the winter months.
    • Hamden's overall crime rate is 22 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is higher than 86 percent of Connecticut's other towns and cities. The property crime rate of 19.17 is almost two points higher than the state rate, which may worry seniors who are concerned about their safety.
    • The Hamden area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Yale New Haven Hospital Saint Raphael Campus, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • CT Transit offers public transportation in Hamden and riders aged 65 and older are eligible for a reduced fare. A paratransit service is available in the area through the Greater New Haven Transit District.
    • The Hamden Arts Commission offers residents of the town opportunities to experience arts and culture through concerts and other programs. Some assisted living facilities may also arrange trips to visit local galleries or see a show put on by the Whitney Players.
    • The State of the Air 2018 report gave New Haven County, including Hamden, a mixed report. The county received a failing grade for ozone pollution and a "C" grade for 24-hour particle pollution, which may impact the health of seniors with respiratory conditions.
