What to Consider About Assisted Living in Canaan

Canaan, which includes the area of Falls Village, is a small town in Litchfield County, Connecticut, with a population of about 1,200 people. The area boasts old-world charm from historic buildings as well as natural scenery along the Appalachian Trail. 

For local senior citizens, Litchfield County has four assisted living facilities, with one in Canaan, two in Torrington and one in the city of Litchfield. Assisted living facilities throughout Connecticut serve people 55 and older in managed residential communities (MRCs), which may be licensed by the state as assisted living service agencies.

  • Canaan is more affordable for seniors than other parts of Connecticut, with a cost of living 16 percent lower than the state average. The prices are primarily lower for housing, transportation and miscellaneous goods. Compared with the rest of the nation, Canaan costs two percent higher than average.
