    What to Consider About Memory Care in East Haven

    Currently, 75,000 seniors in Connect are living with Alzheimer's disease. Of its close to 29,000 residents, 18.8 percent are aged 65 years and up. For those individuals in this age range affected by dementia, specialized care can be found at the town's one memory care facility. Twelve more of these facilities, known as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) in Connecticut, are in neighboring communities. As per state regulations, all of these SCUs are specially licensed by the Department of Public Health.

    • Using the U.S. national average of 100 as a point of reference, the overall cost of living in East Haven is rated 112.8, more than five points less than the state-wide average of 118. Residents can expect to save on housing and grocery costs, which could make it an attractive, cost-effective option for Connecticut families on a tight budget. 
    • East Haven has no available facilities in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in New Haven at Yale New Haven Hospital.
    • While Connecticut is known for its cold winter temperatures, the low in East Haven only drops to 21 degrees, which is 4 degrees higher than the state average, making the overall climate milder and more comfortable. The area does receive around 32 inches of snow, so it's important to discuss the measures taken by SCUs to protect residents when the weather becomes harsh.
    • Crime rates in East Haven are quite similar to the averages seen on a national scale. Violent crime scores a 31.3 out of 100, with 100 considered high crime, and a 42.3 in terms of property crime. These numbers are much higher than the national averages state-wide, which are 21.1 and 23.7, respectively. Memory care facilities should have security equipment in place, and an overview of the facility's policies and procedures may offer added peace of mind.
