    What to Consider About Memory Care in New London County

    New London County forms the seacoast southeast corner of Connecticut with about 270,000 of the state's residents by U.S. Census 2017 estimate. The 65-and-older population is only slightly above average, and New London County has a total of three memory care facilities for people with Alzheimer's and dementia-related conditions.

    Overall, the state of Connecticut has over 3.5 million residents and there are currently 75,000 people with Alzheimer's. Connecticut established a State Department on Aging in 2013 whose charter is to oversee and develop resources for seniors in the state.

    • New London County's rating is slightly above average for violent crime and a bit less than average for property crime. Combined with the security features employed by memory care facilities, seniors should feel safe in this area.
    • Even with the sea air, the American Lung Association rates the New London County area an F for ozone. This could concern seniors with common respiratory conditions such as asthma. The county does get a B grade for particulates in the air and a passing grade overall. Local efforts to control air pollution have resulted in steady improvement in local scores since 1996 when the ALA chart began.
    • Typical New England weather provides four very distinct seasons here with an average number of sunny days which can help with memory care residents' moods. Time spent outdoors in the garden or taking short walks may be limited in the wintertime as temperatures can drop to 17 degrees F with 31 inches of snow each year. Summers reach a mild 82 degrees F here but an above-average 50 inches of rain do fall each year which could limit outdoor activities from time to time.
    • The New London area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as the regional Hartford Hospital in nearby Hartford and local Yale-New Haven-affiliated Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
