Waterbury Senior Demographics

Waterbury was once one of the leading manufacturers of brassware, clocks and watches in the United States, but the city saw a major industrial decline as manufacturing took a hit across the nation. The city has yet to truly recover from the collapse of its industry and was recently rated one of the worst places to start a new business despite also being touted as an excellent place to raise a family. Its economy is primarily driven by the government and healthcare industry and the city is home to a diverse population that includes a significant share of seniors.

The senior population represents about 12.6% of Waterbury’s 108,000 residents and while the city’s population is declining, the number of seniors is slated to rise when millions of people across the nation on the fringe of retirement finally reach their golden years. Those looking to remain active and live healthy and independent lives for as long as they can will be able to take advantage of numerous social events, classes and activities provided by the Waterbury Senior Center.

For more information on all that the senior center has to offer, you can call (203) 574-6746 or visit http://www.waterburyct.org/seniorservices.

Primary concerns: The greatest demerit for this center is a completely unacceptable health inspection history.

Primary concerns: The root of all of this home’s issues is likely its poor staff quality.

Since there are so many homes serving Waterbury and the surrounding towns, our Waterbury nursing injury lawyers suggest using the nursing home compare tool when considering which home to trust with the treatment and care of anyone you hold dear.
