With an average yearly household income of US$ 103,696 in 2010, Tolland is one of the wealthiest communities in North Central Connecticut. The town has its area of 39.9 square miles bisected by Interstate 84 but has been able to retain a charming village feel.
Tolland has a population of 44,654 (US Census Bureau, 2010). The city counts 16,794 households and the median age is 40.4 years old, above the national median age of 36.8. The Census Bureau counted 1,739 Tolland residents who were older than 65 in 2010 or over 11% of the total. The population over 85 years old was of 197, or 1.3%.
Tolland has ranked number 34 among "Best places to live in America" by CNN/Money magazine in the "small town" category. Considering the quality of life in the community with its village feel, it is understandable that Tolland residents would prefer to age at home, independently. 4.1% of the town’s 4586 households had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older, in 2010.
With a little help, it is possible to remain independent, healthy and safe longer, with a high quality of living.
All our caregivers are W2 employees, which means our clients are cared for and do not have to even think about taxes, benefits, workers compensation and social security.
The satisfaction of our clients with our senior care and Alzheimer’s care services can be verified through the innumerous Five Star Reviews they send us and post online, on Google. In an email, the son of one of our Tolland clients who has Alzheimer’s, wrote: “I wanted to let you know that Grace has been absolutely wonderful with mom. She has been able to get her up and having breakfast before 10 am most mornings. The way she is able to get mom to do what is needed makes it really obvious that she has lots of experience dealing with people with dementia. Both mom and dad think the world of her”.
