Nursing Homes in Connecticut

The southernmost state in New England, Connecticut is a popular destination for residents of the New York metropolitan area looking for a scenic getaway — particularly during October, when fall colors are most vibrant. Known as the “Constitution State” for its nation-building contributions following the Revolutionary War, Connecticut is rich with historic Colonial landmarks in cities like Hartford and New London. The southern coastline along the Long Island Sound includes Hammonasset Beach State Park, as well as New Haven, the state’s second-largest city. Here you’ll find Yale University, the antique carousel at Lighthouse Point Park, and the famous New Haven-style thin crust pizza. Although Connecticut can be a bit more expensive than other states, you’ll find it to be a serene, picturesque escape from the big city and an excellent retirement destination.

There are more than 75 nursing homes in Connecticut. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Connecticut to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Connecticut is about $13,900, according to Genworth.

Maplewood at Strawberry Hill in East Norwalk, CT
5.0

We are extremely happy with our experience at Maplewood at Strawberry Hill. The facility is smaller and feels very home-like, but whatever you need is there. They have been wonderful to work with and we have nothing but good things to say. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Waterstone on High Ridge in Stamford, CT
4.9

For me Waterstone on High Ridge was the only place that I really liked that we looked at. It has everything we needed. It is first class, the building is stunning, and the food is like being at a 5 star hotel. They also really involve the families in everything and I really like that. The outside area is just beautiful. The activities are phenomenal and they have so much to do. They get feedback from residents and change/add activities to the calendar. Staff are very attentive, everyone who works in the building knows my dad by name. He is thriving here and could not be happier, he loves it.

Atria Darien
4.4

My parents came to Atria Darien after a storm destroyed our home. We had lived there for many years, and spent the best part of the pandemic managing on our own. At home, we were safe, but really limited. Atria has turned out not only to be a solution for our temporary housing needs for both parents, but an exceptional addition to their life. The community is welcoming and interesting. The executive Director sets very high standards and is involved in every aspect of residential life. My parents enjoy the food, the activities, their beautiful apartment and the security of an attentive, lovely staff. Truly, I never imagined there was a place like Atria Darien, but my parents and I are beyond delighted that we found it.
