    What to Consider About Memory Care in Hartford County

    Approximately 75,000 seniors in the state of Connecticut are currently living with Alzheimer's disease. Located in the north central part of the state, Hartford County is home to over 895,000 residents. Roughly 16.8 percent of this population are 65 years of age or older and, therefore, may be affected by some type of dementia, for which they require specialized care. This treatment can be found at memory care facilities, known in Connecticut as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs). Across the county, a total of 20 of these facilities are available.

    • Connecticut is known for its cold winter temperatures. Temperatures in Hartford County can drop to a low of 17 degrees, and 38 inches of snowfall is expected to fall in a season. While summers are warm, the region only scores a 44 out of 100 in terms of overall comfort. It's a good idea to check that an SCU has precautionary measures in place to ensure its senior residents are safe when conditions get harsh.
    • The cost of living in Hartford County is 114.4, based on the U.S. national average of 100. While this may seem high, it is lower than the average cost of living seen across the state, so residents may see savings in housing and transportation costs.
    • While crime throughout the state is low, Hartford County sees higher rates. On a scale out of 100, with 100 representing high crime, the rate of violent crime in Hartford County is 40, which compares to the statewide average of 21.1 and the national average of 31.1. In terms of property crime, the area scores 37.7 compared to 23.7 across Connecticut and 38.1 nationally. Most SCUs have security systems and surveillance in place, but it's still worthwhile to inquire about their safety policies and procedures.
    • Hartford County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Hartford HospitalBristol Hospital and the Hospital of Central Connecticut's New Britain and Bradley Memorial campuses, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
