What to Consider About Memory Care in Meriden

Over 75,000 seniors in the state of Connecticut have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Located in New Haven County the city of Meriden has a population of roughly 60,000, 16.5 percent of whom are aged 65 years and older and some have a form of dementia. To serve this segment of the population, there are two memory care facilities, or Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) as they are known as in Connecticut, located in Meriden. These facilities are specially licensed by Connecticut Department of Public Health to provide care for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
