    What to Consider About Memory Care in Woodbridge

    With roughly 75,000 seniors in the state of Connecticut currently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, the need for specialized care is growing. In the town of Woodbridge, 23 percent of its more than 8,800 residents are 65 years of age and older, and a portion of them suffer from some type of dementia.

    To serve this demographic, memory care facilities, or Alzheimer's Special Care Units (SCUs) as they're called in Connecticut, are available to provide the care needed. There are two of these facilities in Woodbridge and another 15 in surrounding communities. 

    • On average, crime rates across Connecticut tend to be lower than they are nationally. In Woodbridge, the rate of violent crime scores a 12.7, and property crime scores a 24.1 on a scale out of 100, with 100 being high crime. These numbers are far lower than the U.S. national averages of 31.1 and 38.1 in the same categories, respectively. In fact, the New-Haven-Milford metropolitan area is ranked as the 20th most secure large metropolitan area in the United States.
    • Compared to the U.S. national average of 100, the cost of living in Woodbridge is 47.5 percent higher. The biggest factor in the difference is the cost of housing, which is over two times higher in Woodbridge than the national average. Seniors and their families may need to keep this in mind when budgeting.
    • While temperatures can drop to 19 degrees, and 33 inches of snow are expected each year, winters in Woodbridge are still warmer than they are on average across the state. It is still important to check that an SCU has proper measures in place to keep residents safe when conditions do get harsh.
    • Woodbridge has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals specializing in brain health and dementia care located in New Haven (Yale New Haven Hospital) and Derby (Griffin Hospital), both about a 15-minute drive from the city center.
