    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bridgeport

    Bridgeport, Connecticut is known as "The Park City" with good reason — from Seaside Park to Pleasure Beach, the city boasts over 1,300 acres of public outdoor spaces. Bridgeport is also a diverse city where seniors make up a growing percentage of the population.

    For those seniors interested in assisted living, the Connecticut Department of Public Health, Facility Licensing and Investigations Section, licenses and oversees Assisted Living Services Agencies (ALSAs) and Residential Care Homes (RCHs). Seventeen of these facilities are in the Bridgeport area, including one within city limits and 16 more close by in towns such as Trumbull and West Haven.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bridgeport

    • Bridgeport's weather may put a damper on activities that seniors enjoy doing outdoors. The city's precipitation levels are higher than the national average. Summers are often rainy, while winters tend to be cold and wet, with lows in the 20s and around 32 inches of snow annually.
    • Overall, living costs in Bridgeport are 14.9 percent higher than the national average. Groceries, healthcare and transportation all cost more in Bridgeport than in the average U.S. city. Seniors living on a tight budget might notice a bite taken out of their disposable income.
    • Connecticut's tax policies don't offer any breaks for seniors. From Social Security benefits to pensions, the state taxes all kinds of retirement income.
    • Bridgeport offers residents of local assisted living communities many options for outings and day trips. Seniors can enjoy strolling through any of the city's hundreds of acres of public parks or taking in a live show at the Downtown Cabaret Theater. History buffs can explore one of the city's many museums, including the Barnum Museum, which is dedicated to the showman P.T. Barnum, who was one of Bridgeport's most famous residents and its onetime mayor. 
    • Crime may be a real concern for the city's residents, including seniors. Both violent and property crime rates in Bridgeport remain higher than national and state averages. According to one report, Bridgeport is less safe than 82 percent of U.S. cities. 
    • Public transportation is available by bus. The Greater Bridgeport Transit Authority (GBTA) serves Bridgeport and surrounding areas. Seniors can use the system at a discounted rate with proper identification, such as a Medicare card.
