    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Avon

    Avon is a suburb of Hartford in the Farmington Valley region of Hartford County, Connecticut. This quaint community lies along the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail and is home to just under 20,000 people. Seniors in Avon make up 18.9 percent of the population and are served by two assisted living facilities in Avon and more than 100 in the surrounding cities. While the Connecticut Department of Public Health doesn't license assisted living facilities individually, it does regulate Assisted Living Service Agencies who provide services for assisted living.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Avon

    • The Avon area cost of living is 35.8 percent higher than the U.S. average, which may affect seniors on a tight budget. Most of this is due to high housing costs but transportation, grocery and health care are all slightly above national medians. 
    • Winters can be quite cold in Avon with average lows of 17 degrees Fahrenheit in January and snowfall of 39 inches per year. This may be difficult for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. Summers are warm with highs of 83 degrees in June and rainfall averages around 50 inches annually.
    • Avon has less exposure to crime than nearby Hartford and is safer than 80 percent of U.S. cities. Violent and property crimes receive low scores of 13.1 and 16.2 out of 100, so seniors can feel safe traveling around town. 
    • CTTransit provides public buses with reduced fares for adults over 65. Dial-A-Ride offers seniors over 60 transportation to various destinations in Avon. Allied Transportation provides services to seniors in need of a ride to medical appointments, shopping and other activities in the greater Hartford area.
    • Connecticut taxes all types of retirement income, although Social Security may be exempt for certain seniors. This may leave less money for seniors to put toward assisted living. 
    • Avon has an array of community resources, including Seniors on the Move, an organization that provides health clinics and screenings, lunches and games for seniors as well as one senior center.


    Paying for Assisted Living in Avon

    Average Monthly Costs

    Cities in Connecticut

    $5,950.00 Avon
    $4,272.00 Farmington
    $4,000.00 US
    $3,822.00 Torrington
    $3,600.00 Waterbury
    $3,547.00 West Hartford

    Assisted Living costs in Avon start around $5,950 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Avon and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Avon

    Two governmental programs in Connecticut, the Assisted Living Program, which is a state medical waiver within the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE), and the Community First Choice Program, a program that helps Medicaid members with activities of daily living, can help to provide seniors with financial assistance for costs other than room and board.   

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Connecticut page.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    While many families use their own funds or personal assets to pay for assisted living, there are plenty of additional options to cover these costs. Some additional ways to finance assisted living costs include:

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage

    For more information about different ways to finance assisted living, visit our Assisted Living in Connecticut page.


    Free Assisted Living Resources in Avon

    Avon and the surrounding area are home to numerous government agencies and non-profit organizations offering help for seniors searching for or currently residing in an assisted living community. These organizations can also provide assistance in a number of other eldercare services such as geriatric care management, elder law advice, estate planning, finding home care and health and wellness programs.

    To see a list of free assisted living resources in Avon, please visit our Assisted Living in Connecticut page.


    Assisted Living Laws and Regulations in Avon

    Avon-area assisted living communities must adhere to the comprehensive set of state laws and regulations that all assisted living communities in Connecticut are required to follow. Visit our Assisted Living in Connecticut page for more information about these laws.
