    What to Consider About Memory Care in Hamden

    Over 75,000 seniors in the state of Connecticut have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The town of Hamden has a population of over 61,000, 15.3 percent of whom are aged 65 and older and may suffer from some type of dementia. To serve this population, Hamden and its surrounding communities offer over 40 memory care facilities for seniors to choose from. These facilities, known as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) in Connecticut, require a special license to operate.

    • Located in New Haven County, Hamden is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Yale-New Haven Hospital's Senior Assessment Center, as well as Yale-New Haven Hospital's main location less than 10 miles away, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Though crime in the state of Connecticut tends to be lower than the national average, Hamden sees higher rates of both violent and property crime. On a scale of one to 100, with 100 being high crime, Hamden scores a 36 for violent crime and a 41.6 for property crime, compared to national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, respectively. While most facilities have surveillance and security systems in place, families may want to ask to review their security procedures and policies.
    • For the region, Hamden has a relatively temperate climate. Winter lows can drop to 19 degrees, and the summer high is 83 degrees. An average 205 days of sun are expected annually, and the town's overall comfort index receives a rating of 44 out of 100, with 100 being the best.
    • At 115.3, the cost of living in Hamden is higher than the U.S. national average of 100. The largest contributing factors are transportation and utility costs. While the overall cost of living is similar to the state-wide average, housing costs are less in Hamden than elsewhere in Connecticut. This may make Hamden an attractive option for seniors on a tight budget.
