What to Consider About Memory Care in Niantic

Niantic is a village in East Lyme, and while its population is only around 3,100, roughly 23.2 percent of those residents are aged 65 years and older and may require specialized care for dementia. An estimated 75,000 seniors across the state of Connecticut have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. This care can be found at a memory care facility, or Alzheimer's Special Care Unit (SCU) as they are known as in Connecticut. There is a single facility available in the village, with an additional option just over three miles away in Waterford.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Niantic

  • Despite low crime averages across the state, crime rates in Niantic are quite high. Compared to national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 out of 100 for violent and property crime, respectively, Niantic scores a 39.9 and 41.1 in the same categories. Families of prospective SCU residents may wish to review the security policies and procedures the facility has in place.
  • Compared to the U.S. national average of 100, Niantic's cost of living is rated 120.6, largely due to high housing costs, which are around 1.5 times higher than they are nationally. Families budgeting for a memory care facility may want to keep this in mind.
  • Niantic 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 at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, a division of Yale New Haven Health.
  • While winters in Connecticut can be harsh, the weather in Niantic is known to be slightly more temperate. The winter low is 21 degrees, four degrees higher than the state average, though summer temperatures generally do not climb past the low 80s. Overall, the village receives a comfort index rating of 44 out of 100. It may be beneficial to discuss the safety measures of an SCU as winters are accompanied by an average 26 inches of snow, which may put seniors with dementia at risk.
