What to Consider About Memory Care in Branford

More than 75,000 seniors across the state of Connecticut are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, which has prompted an increasing demand for access to dementia care. In the town of Branford, 21.5 percent of its 28,000 residents are aged 65 years and older and may have a cognitive condition that requires them to seek treatment at a memory care facility. Only one of these facilities, known as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs), is located in Branford, but 29 other SCUs are available in nearby communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Branford

  • The safety of a town can be an important factor when choosing a memory care facility. On a scale of 100, with 100 being high crime, Branford scores a 27.3 for violent crime and a 37.7 for property crime, which is close to the U.S. national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, respectively. These rates are low compared to the general New Haven-Milford metropolitan area  scores of 36 and 41.6.
  • The overall cost of living in Branford is rated 126, compared to the U.S. national average of 100. This number also exceeds the average cost of living across the state, which is 118. The biggest factors in this difference are housing and transportation costs. Families may will likely need to factor these high costs into their budget.
  • Though Connecticut is known for its harsh winter weather, residents of Branford may find the climate to be more temperate. The average winter low is 21 degrees, which is relatively mild compared to a statewide average of 17. Overall, the town receives a comfort index score of 45 out of 100. 
  • Branford has no available facilities in the event of a medical emergency or illness, and the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care is located in New Haven (Yale New Haven Hospital), which is about a 15-minute drive from the town center.
