What to Consider About Memory Care in Bethel

Bethel is situated in southwestern Connecticut in Fairfield County, where well over 12 percent of seniors receiving Medicare are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. This rate is higher than average and is expected to grow by almost 20 percent by 2025. 

The community of Bethel is home to a little under 10,000 people, about 14 percent of whom are seniors. To serve local seniors with dementia, Bethel has one memory care facility, and there are nine more nearby. In the Bethel region, memory care facilities may be referred to as special care units. SCUs have separate licensure requirements from assisted living facilities, and they are regulated by the Connecticut State Department of Health

  • According to data gathered by the American Lung Association, Fairfield County's ozone pollution levels are high, but its short-term particle pollution levels are good. Since seniors are vulnerable to ozone pollution, especially seniors with certain conditions, families may want to consider Bethel's air quality as they're researching local memory care options. 
  • In Connecticut, Social Security benefits are taxable for seniors whose income level is above a certain level. Other types of retirement income, including pensions and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, are fully taxable. This may affect how much money can be put toward memory care expenses in Bethel.
  • Bethel is a fairly safe community, which may appeal to families who are researching memory care options in the region. It is rated safer than 71 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes, and when it is compared to cities with similar population sizes, its crime rate is considerably lower than average.
  • Bethel is a relatively expensive place to live, with an overall cost of living that is about 35 percent higher than the national average and almost 20 percent higher than the state median. This may result in higher memory care expenses, which may be a consideration for families and seniors with restrictive budgets.
