    What to Consider About Memory Care in Milford

    There are currently around 75,00 seniors across the state of Connecticut who have Alzheimer's disease. As a city of close to 53,000 with 18.1 percent of its population aged 65 and older, Milford, like many other Connecticut towns, is seeing a growing demand for specialized care to serve those with dementia. While there is only one memory care facility in the town at present, 10 more of these facilities, known in Connecticut as Alzheimer's Care Units (SCUs), are available in nearby communities. 

    • Milford is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Milford Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • At a score of 128.5, the cost of living in Milford is higher than both the Connecticut average of 118 and the U.S. national average of 100. The largest contributing factors in this difference are high housing and utility costs. This may influence where seniors and their families allocate funds when budgeting for a memory care facility.
    • While winters can get cold, they are often much milder in Milford than they are in many other Connecticut towns. The winter low is 22 degrees, compared to an average of 17 degrees across that state. An average 204 sunny days are expected each year, and the area receives an overall comfort index score of 44 out of 100. However, 31 inches of snowfall is likely during the winter months, so it's worthwhile to inquire as to what measures an SCU takes to ensure the safety of its residents when these conditions arise.
    • Despite low crimes rates across the state, Milford sees an influx in this area. In terms of violent crime, Milford scores a 34.6 out of 100, with 100 being high crime. Property crime is also quite high at 33.4. Most facilities will have safety and surveillance equipment in place, but it's a good idea to review a facility's security policies and procedures.
