New Haven is a coastal city in Connecticut where approximately 13,400 out of the 134,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and older. The city has a significantly above-average number of doctors per capita, and it’s home to the Yale-New Haven Hospital, which has a specialized geriatric care unit. At an average of $12,395, New Haven’s monthly rates for nursing homes are the most cost-effective in the state.
Skilled nursing units are institutions that offer the highest level of care seniors can receive outside of a hospital. These facilities, also known as nursing homes, offer short-term rehabilitation and long-term care. Nurses medically monitor residents, and caregivers help with daily needs such as dressing and bathing. As nursing homes offer 24/7 care and supervision, older adults in the area who can safely live within their communities might want to consider options such as home care providers and assisted living communities.
