    What to Consider About Memory Care in Stratford

    Over 75,000 seniors across the state have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, which is a growing concern for the the town of Stratford, as 19.5 percent of its over 52,000 residents are aged 65 years and older. While there is  currently only one memory care facility in town, an additional 12 are available in neighboring communities. These specialized care facilities are called Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) in Connecticut.

    • Stratford is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Bridgeport Hospital, a division of Yale New Haven Health located just over two miles away, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Crime in Stratford is surprisingly high for the Connecticut region, which on average falls below the national average. On a scale from 1 to 100, with 100 being high crime, Stratford's rate of violent crime scores a 39.2 compared to the national average of 31.1, and its rate of property crime receives a 37, only slightly below the national average of 38.1
    • In terms of overall comfort level based on its year-round climate, Stratford scores a 44 out of 100, with 100 being the best. Compared to many towns in Connecticut, Stratford has a relatively good climate. The winter low is around 21 degrees, compared to an average low of 17 degrees state-wide. Winters can still get quite cold, with 32 inches of snow expected throughout the season, so it's a good idea to ask a memory care facility what policies they have in place to ensure residents are kept safe during the colder months.
    • At a score of 127, the cost of living in Stratford is higher than both the statewide average of 118 and the U.S. national average of 100.
