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.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Meriden

  • The rate of violent crime in Meriden receives a score of 24.1 on a scale out of 100, with 100 being high crime. This number is much lower than the U.S. national average score of 31.1, which may give seniors living in memory care facilities peace of mind as they go about their daily activities. The rate of property crime, however, is slightly higher than the national average, scoring a 40.8 as compared to 38.1.
  • Like most cities across the state, Meriden experiences cold winters, and the area only receives a 38 out of a possible 100 in terms of overall comfort. Residents can expect temperatures to drop below 18 degrees in winter months, along with an average 35 inches of snow expected annually. It's important to discuss the safety precautions individual memory care facilities have in place to keep residents safe in these cold conditions.
  • While slightly above the U.S. national average of 100, at 103.1 the cost of living in Meriden, still scores far below the average cost of living across the state of Connecticut, which receives a 118. This may make Meriden an appealing option for seniors who are transitioning to a memory care facility and looking to save on living expenses.
  • Meriden is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as the MidState Medical Center, the Hospital of Central Connecticut, St. Mary's Hospital and Yale-New Haven Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
