What to Consider About Memory Care in New Haven County

Of the more than 860,000 residents who call New Haven County home, 16.9 percent belong to this age demographic and may be affected by this diagnosis. Across the state, memory care facilities, known as Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs), are available to provide specialized treatment for seniors with some type of dementia, 14 of which are available throughout the county.

  • Winters in New Haven County are cold, though they are a little warmer than average temperatures seen across the state. The winter low is 19 degrees, a few degrees higher than the Connecticut average, and summers highs can reach 84 degrees. However, residents can expect 34 inches of snow each year. Families should consider looking into an SCU's security policies to make sure proper precautions are taken to keep residents safe in harsh conditions.
  • New Haven County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Milford HospitalSt. Mary's Hospital and, of course, the nationally recognized Yale-New Haven Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

These numbers are on a scale out of 100, with 100 considered high crime. While most SCUs are fully equipped with surveillance and security systems, families may find added peace of mind reviewing a facility's safety policies and procedures in detail.
  • At a score of 114.4, the cost of living in New Haven County is higher than the U.S. national average of 100, however, it is lower than the state average of 118. Factoring in areas of particularly high cost, such as transportation and utilities, may be important for seniors when budgeting for memory care services.
