    What to Consider About Memory Care in Haddam

    Access to dementia care is a growing concern in Connecticut, as approximately 75,000 seniors through the state have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. In the town of Haddam alone, nearly 20 percent of its 8,200 residents are aged 65 years and older. There is currently only one memory care facility legally approved to care for that demographic locally and one in the nearby Middletown.

    In Connecticut, these facilities are known as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs), and are required by the state's Department of Public Health to obtain special licensing to operate.

    • With ratings of 22.6 out of 100 for both violent and property crime, Haddam crime rates score much lower than the national ratings of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, respectively. Though most SCUs have security systems in place, families may find added peace of mind discussing the specific policies and procedures with facility directors.
    • Haddam 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 nearby Middletown at Middlesex Hospital.
    • Usually, winter temperatures in Haddam drop to a low of 18 degrees, which is just one degree higher than the state-wide average. The area also sees an average of 35 inches of snow each year. It may be a good idea to ask what measures an SCU takes to ensure its residents stay safe if conditions worsened substantially. 
    • Cost of living can be an important factor for seniors and their families when budgeting for the transition to a memory care facility. While health and grocery costs remain comparable to national averages, the overall cost of living in Haddam scores a 125.3, higher than both the state average of 118 and the U.S. national average of 100.
