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.

Ocean Meadow Senior Living in Clinton, CT
5.0

Ocean Meadow is a small community, and the senior staff has been there for a long time. They're deeply committed to memory care. What I was looking for more than anything in a memory care staff is patience, and that's something they brought up on their own. Their staff is very well trained in memory care. The Recreation Director is fabulous. Mom is so happy there. They post pictures and are very communicative. They send me texts if something great happens or if they need to connect about anything else. They're just amazing and so attentive. Mom loves the food. She plays piano, so they arranged to have a piano in her space, which was so thoughtful. The whole place is beyond my wildest dreams. And it's a great value compared to other paces looked at.

Kind, friendly and vigilant service to loved ones and extended family. Food Service: quality of food very good, but often only warm by time arrives at table side. The attentiveness of employees is excellent; they are compassionate folk!

The Residence at Brookside in Avon, CT
5.0

The staff here really makes me at ease. They are tremendously helpful and caring to me and my loved one. My loved one is transitioning very well. The people always keep me informed about anything or any progression that my loved one has made. They also offer a lot of activities. The food is good, but if there is a meal that my loved one does not like the chef will make what my loved one wants.
