What to Consider About Memory Care in Wilton

Wilton, Connecticut, is a residential community with 18,580 residents. Of the city's population, senior citizens 65 and over represent 15 percent, who are linked to a higher rate of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. While more than 75,000 Connecticut residents have been diagnosed with cognitive  conditions, this number is expected to reach 91,000 by 2025, according to the Alzheimer's Association.

To protect older adults with special cognitive needs, Connecticut's Department of Public Health has specific requirements for assisted living services agencies and managed residential communities operating Alzheimer's special care units. Wilton is home to several state-qualified memory care facilities, and more than a dozen additional options are located in nearby communities, including Norwalk and Stamford.

  • Connecticut is one of the nation's least tax-friendly states for retirees. Most forms of retirement income are subject to state-level income tax. Depending on the filer's income bracket, a portion of their Social Security benefits could be taxed as well. These policies may affect the affordability of memory care and related services.
  • The cost of living in Wilton is double the U.S. average and about 80 percent higher than the median for Connecticut. Apart from housing, residents pay 20 to 45 percent more for transportation, utilities and miscellaneous expenses. Additionally, healthcare is 6 percent higher than the national average. These factors may influence the cost of memory care.
  • As part of Fairfield County, Wilton has below-average air quality similar to other parts of the tri-state area. It received an F grade for the number of days with high ozone and a B for 24-hour particulate concentrations. These conditions may aggravate respiratory symptoms, especially for seniors who have asthma or require oxygen.
  • The Wilton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as the Norwalk HospitalSt. Vincent's Medical Center and the federally funded Yale University Alzheimer's Disease Center, in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
