    What to Consider About Memory Care in Waterbury

    Across the state of Connecticut, over 75,000 seniors have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The second largest city in New Haven County, Waterbury, has a population of close to 110,000, with almost 13 percent of its residents aged 65 years and older, some of whom have cognitive impairments.

    Over 30 memory care facilities, or Alzheimer's special care units (SCUs) as they are called in Connecticut, are available in Waterbury and its surrounding communities for seniors with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. These facilities require special licensing, in addition to the Connecticut Department of Public Health's basic requirements, in order to operate.

    • At 118, the average cost of living in the state of Connecticut exceeds the U.S. national average of 100. However, Waterbury scores a 99.8, making it a much more affordable option for seniors on a budget than other communities in surrounding metropolitan areas.
    • While Waterbury's violent crime rate of 30.6 out of a possible 100 falls just below the U.S. average of 31.1, the rate of property crime is significantly higher at 54.3, compared to 38.1 nationally. Be sure to check with individual facilities about the security measures they employ to keep residents safe.
    • Waterbury is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the award-winning Waterbury Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Like many cities across the state of Connecticut, Waterbury experiences cold winters. Temperatures can drop to 17 degrees in the winter months, with an average of 37 inches of snow expected per year. It's important to ensure your chosen memory care facility has measures in place to protect seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia from cold weather conditions.
