What to Consider About Memory Care in Brookfield

The number of Americans with Alzheimer's disease is growing at a rapid rate, and in Connecticut alone, 75,000 seniors are living with this diagnosis. In the town of Bridgefield, 16.5 percent of its 17,000 residents are aged 65 and older, and they may require specialized care for dementia. Memory care facilities, called Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) in Connecticut, are available to provide this type of treatment. While there is only one SCU locally, an additional seven are available in surrounding communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Brookfield

  • Temperatures in Brookfield and state averages are relatively consistent with a winter low of 18 degrees and summer high of around 83. While the town does score a 49 out of 100 in terms of overall comfort, it's expected to get 45 inches of snowfall each year, so it's important to check that an SCU has safety measures in place if conditions become unfavorable.
  • Compared to the average national rating of 100, the cost of living in Clinton scores a 140.8, largely due to high costs of housing and transportation. This may be important for seniors and their families to consider when deciding where to allocate funds.
  • Located in the safest mid-sized metropolitan area in the U.S., Clinton's crime rates are much lower than the national average. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being higher crime, violent crime is 15.7 compared to 31.1 nationally, and property crime is 14.9, compared to 38.1. Though these numbers are likely to offer peace of mind, families may still find it beneficial to discuss the security policies and procedures of an SCU with staff members.
  • Brookfield has no available facilities in the event of a medical emergency or illness, and the nearest major hospitals specializing in brain health and dementia care are located in Danbury (Danbury Hospital) and New Milford (New Milford Hospital), each about a 15-minute drive from the town center.
