Weston is a small town in Fairfield County, Connecticut. While the cost of living in this town is considerably high at more than double the national average, its crime rate is very low, which may make it a popular choice for retirees. Weston seniors, who comprise about 13% of the population, can connect with other retirees and take part in a range of activities at the Weston Senior Activities Center. The center is open on weekdays, and senior luncheons are provided on Wednesdays.

According to data published in Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care survey, homemaker services in the Weston region cost about $4,147 per month or $21.75 per hour, which is a little more than the national average of $4,004 per month or $21 per hour. Similarly, home health aides, which provide light medical care, cost an average of $4,671 per month or $24.50 per hour in Weston. This is compared to the national monthly average of $4,195 or hourly average of $22.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Weston, so data for the closest major city, Bridgeport, was used.

Weston Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Weston:

Dial-a-Ride

Address: 56 Norfield Rd., Weston, CT 06883
Phone: (203) 222-2576

Dial-a-Ride is a service of the Town of Weston that is available to adults aged 60 and over. In most cases, a wheelchair-accessible van is used to provide transportation, and participants are picked up and returned to their homes. While priority is given to meeting medical needs, seniors may also utilize this service for transportation to senior center activities, shopping and other errands. Rides must be requested at least 24 hours in advance.

Tax Relief Programs

Address: 56 Norfield Rd., Weston, CT 06883
Phone: (203) 222-2696

Homeowners in Weston who are unable to afford their property taxes may apply for one of the town’s three tax relief programs, including the tax abatement program, the tax deferment program and the tax freeze program. To qualify, applicants must be at least 65 years old, and their income and assets must not exceed specified limits. Applications for these programs must be submitted to the Tax Collector no later than May 15th of each year.

Westport Weston Health District

Address: 180 Bayberry Ln., Westport, CT 06880
Phone: (203) 227-9571

The Public Health Services division of the Westport Weston Health District provides an array of services to seniors in Weston, including visits to homebound seniors, to ensure that their health needs are being met. The WWHD also provides in-home safety assessments and maintains a list of local seniors who might need special emergency assistance in the event of a weather or disaster evacuation.

Weston Warm-Up Fund

Address: 56 Norfield Rd., Weston, CT 06883
Phone: (203) 222-2663

Low-income seniors in Weston may qualify to receive assistance with heating costs through the Weston Warm-Up Fund.

This non-profit organization is administered by the Weston Department of Social Services.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
