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.
