What to Consider About Memory Care in Darien

Darien is a town located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, where 75,000 seniors have Alzheimer's disease. Of its close to 22,000 residents, roughly 12 percent are age 65 years or older and may be living with some type of dementia. Across the state, memory care facilities, also known as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs), are available to provide specialized treatment for this segment of the population. Being the smallest town along Connecticut's gold coast, Darien only has one of these facilities; however, an additional 14 are available in surrounding communities.

  • Families of loved ones with dementia may find comfort in Darien's low crime rates. On a scale of 100, where 100 represents high crime, the town scores a 13.6 for violent crime and a 12.5 for property crime, much lower than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories. In fact, the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk metropolitan area is ranked as the #1 best city for crime compared to other mid-sized metropolitan areas across the U.S.
  • Darien 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 Norwalk at Norwalk Hospital.
  • A mild climate can have a beneficial effect on seniors with dementia. While Connecticut is known for its cold temperatures and snow, Darien sees much more temperate conditions in the winter months. The winter low is only 22 degrees, compared to an average low of 17 degrees statewide. Overall, the town scores a comfort index rating of 51 out of 100. 
  • Compared to the national index score of 100, the average cost of living in Darien is 306.3. This difference can be attributed to the cost of housing, which is more than seven times greater than the national average. Families on a tight budget may need to take this into consideration when choosing a memory care facility for their loved ones.
