    Situated on the northern shore of Long Island Sound, Norwalk, Connecticut, is a city of more than 89,000. Roughly 14.2 percent of Norwalk residents are age 65 and older, and some are part of the state's more than 75,000 seniors who have Alzheimer's disease. In the Norwalk area, more than a dozen memory care facilities are available to serve people in need of care for dementia other cognitive impairments. There are three memory care facilities, or Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs), as they're known as in Connecticut, located within Norwalk itself, and an additional 10 in surrounding communities. All are licensed by the state's Department of Public Health.

    • On a scale of one to 100, with 100 the highest, the rates of violent crime and property crime in Norwalk score a 29.5 and 32.3 respectively, lower than the corresponding U.S. national averages of 31.1 and 38.1. In fact, the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk metropolitan area is ranked as the second-safest midsized metropolitan area in America.

Overall, the Norwalk area scores a 51 out of a possible 100 on Sperling's Comfort Index, but winter temperatures can drop into the low 20s, and the amount of snowfall averages 33 inches per year.
