What to Consider About Assisted Living in Middletown
Middletown, Connecticut, located along the Connecticut River, began as a bustling seaport. This college town has New England charm and is home to the well-known Wesleyan University. In addition to quaint city life and large public parks, seniors in Middletown can choose from two Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs), and an additional 41 nearby. ALFs in Connecticut are unique as they are not licensed by the state. The Connecticut Health and Human Services department licenses Assisted Living Service Agencies (ALSAs) which then regulate residential facilities, referred to as Managed Residential Communities (MRCs). These communities must provide regular meals, social activities, maintenance and 24-hour security.
