    What to Consider About Memory Care in Newtown

    With approximately 75,000 seniors across the state of Connecticut diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, cities across the state, including the town of Newtown, have taken measures to ensure these people can access the care they need. Of Newtown's nearly 28,000 residents, 15.6 percent are over 65, and some of them may have dementia or another type of cognitive impairment. To serve this segment of the population, there are two memory care facilities, or Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs), as they're known as in Connecticut, in Newtown, and 10 more in neighboring communities. 

    • With an index of 145.7, the cost of living in Newtown exceeds both the Connecticut average of 118 and the U.S. average of 100. This is largely due to high transportation and housing costs, which are almost double the national average.
    • While most memory care facilities have surveillance equipment and security measures in place, a low rate of crime can offer peace of mind to seniors and their families. Crime rates in Newtown are much lower than the national average. Newtown scores a 13 for violent crime and a 14.9 for property crime, compared to 31.1 and 38.1.
    • Newtown 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 Danbury at Danbury Hospital.
    • Compared to regional averages, Newtown tends to have a more temperate climate. The winter low is around 20 degrees, compared to an average of 17 degrees across the state, and the area receives an overall comfort index score of 45 out of 100. However, it is still expected to see about 41 inches of snow each year, so families should be sure to check what measures an SCU has in place to ensure residents remain safe when conditions get harsh.
