    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mystic

    Mystic is a village of Groton and Stonington, and it's home to over 4,200 residents. Roughly 35 percent of this population is 65 or older, and with 75,000 seniors across the state diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, many of Mystic's elderly citizens may require specialized care for dementia. This type of care can be found at memory care facilities, or Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) as they're called in Connecticut. One is available in Mystic, and three other SCUs are in nearby communities.

    • Though winters in Connecticut can be harsh, Mystic experiences a milder climate. Temperatures only drop to a low of about 21 degrees, compared to a low of 17 degrees state-wide, and only 27 inches of snow are expected per season. It's still important to check that a memory care facility has taken precautions to ensure the safety of its residents in case conditions take a turn for the worse.
    • Mystic has no available facilities in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in New London (Lawrence + Memorial Hospital) and Westerly, Rhode Island (Westerly Hospital).
    • Compared to the U.S. national average of 100, the cost of living in Mystic is 139.8, largely due to housing costs, which are more than double what they are nationally. Families may want to keep this in mind when budgeting for memory care-related expenditures.
    • Though the Norwich-New London metropolitan area is ranked as one of the top 15 safest mid-sized metropolitan areas in the country, violent crime rates in Mystic exceed both the state and national averages. On a scale of 100, with 100 being high crime, Mystic receives a 34, compared to 21.1 in Connecticut and 31.1 nationally. Property crime rates are also high at 37.7, just under the U.S. average of 38.1. Most SCUs have security systems and surveillance equipment in place, but it's still a good idea to review their policies.
