What to Consider About Memory Care in Danbury

Danbury, which is situated along the Long Island Sound in southwestern Connecticut, is home to over 85,000 people. The city has a large senior population that makes up more than 13 percent of the population, and according to the Alzheimer's Association, as many as one in 10 of those seniors may be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. In Connecticut, 77,000 people are currently living with Alzheimer's.

In Danbury, as in all of the state, memory care facilities may also be called special care units. SCUs provide specialized care or services for residents who have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. These facilities have separate licensure requirements, which are enforced by the Connecticut State Department of Health. Danbury has one memory care facility, and there are eight dozen more in nearby cities.

  • Danbury's air quality is fair. The American Lung Association gave Fairfield County an F for ozone pollution and a B for short-term particle pollution, which may be a consideration for families who senior loved one has a condition like asthma or cardiovascular disease.
  • Overall living costs are about 25 percent over the national median, and healthcare expenses are about 6 percent higher here than they are elsewhere. This may be a concern for families with tight memory care budgets.
  • Social Security benefits are taxable for Danbury seniors whose income level is above a certain level, and other forms of retirement income, including pensions and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, are fully taxable. This may reduce how much money can be put toward memory care expenses.
  • Danbury's summers are warm and wet with highs in the low-80s, and winters are chilly with lows in the teens. Families who are visiting local memory care facilities should ensure that staff members keep residents indoors when it's very cold.
