    More than 75,000 seniors across the state of Connecticut have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. With a population of around 130,000, Stamford, Connecticut's third largest city, is home to three memory care facilities to serve seniors with dementia and other cognitive impairments. There an additional 16 facilities in neighboring communities.

    In Stamford, and all of Connecticut, these facilities are known as Alzheimer's special care units (SCUs) and, as required by the state's Department of Public Health, they have supplementary licensing that permits them to provide specialized care and services for individuals with Alzheimer's disease or dementia.

    • The cost of living in Stamford is 30.3 percent higher than the U.S. national average. The largest contributing factors to this influx are housing costs and utilities, which may be important for seniors on a fixed income to consider when choosing a memory care facility.

    • The state of Connecticut as a whole is known for its low crime rates. In Stamford, rates of violent crime score a 24.8 out of 100, and property crime receives a 23.9, much lower than the national averages of 38.1 and 31.1 in the same categories. In fact, the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk metropolitan area is ranked as the 11th most secure large metropolitan area to live in the United States, a comforting statistic for seniors and their families.

While summer highs can reach 84 degrees, winter temperatures can drop to the low 20s, with roughly 30 inches of snow expected each year. It's important to check with individual facilities to see what security measures they have in place to prevent seniors from wandering out in the cold.
