What to Consider About Memory Care in West Hartford

West Hartford is home to over 63,000 residents, nearly 18 percent of whom are age 65 and over. The area is served by the Alzheimer's Association Connecticut Chapter, which serves as the primary source of information and support for the 77,000 Connecticut seniors and their families who are living with the effects of Alzheimer's disease. 

In addition to local informational resources, West Hartford has three memory care facilities, and there are over a dozen more in the surrounding area. These facilities are officially called special care units and have their own licensure requirements that are enforced by the Connecticut State Department of Health

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in West Hartford

  • Overall, living costs in West Hartford are higher than state and nationwide averages, which may be a consideration for families who are relocating their loved one to memory care in north-central Connecticut. Health care costs are about 6 percent higher than they are in the nation as a whole.
  • West Hartford is a relatively safe place to live, with property crime and violent crime rates that are lower than the national averages. This may provide peace of mind for families whose loved one resides in memory care in this city. 
  • Summers in West Hartford are warm and rainy with highs around 84 degrees. Winters are cold and snowy, with lows around 18 degrees and an average annual snowfall of 37 inches, versus the U.S. average of 26 inches of snowfall. This may make it difficult for families to visit their loved ones in memory care in West Hartford during the winter months.
  • In Connecticut, all types of retirement income are subject to state income tax, though Social Security is exempt for seniors whose adjusted gross income is below a certain level. This may impact how much money can be put towards memory care in West Hartford.
