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.
